A friend recently went to this restaurant and reminded me that I never posted about it! Oh no! We had our eye on this place for a long while and finally made it while Mark's niece was visiting us. We decided to get together with our friends and finally try it!

I think it's important to know what people used on their trip, not just what they took. I've talked about the big-ticket items that I took, but I want to fill you in on the smaller things, the things that you wished you'd known before you made it there, and the things that I'm sure someone will forget... but don't say I didn't warn you!

Our tuk-tuk driver met us outside of our hotel, the Kiri Boutique Hotel, to take us around on our last day in Siem Reap. We decided to head towards Banteay Srey and the countryside. We got started early in the morning, around 7, and were excited to have a relaxing ride ahead of us.

After leaving Angkor Wat, we asked our tuk-tuk driver to take us to a breakfast place that he'd enjoy. He ended up taking us to a Western-meets-Cambodian restaurant, which we learned was the norm in Siem Reap. I had a a BLT that was good (it had French dressing instead of mayo) and french fries and Tab had noodles, I think. Overall, it was good but we really just wanted good ole local food. Patience... patience...

The second day in Siem Reap we decided to play smarter, not harder. So, we hired a tuk-tuk driver and headed back out to Angkor. It was o'dark thirty and we were hoping to catch one of those amazing sunrises over Angkor Wat that you hear about. It didn't work out like that, but it was still awesome to see Angkor Wat lighten up right before our eyes.

I've been delaying the start of this series. I'm not sure why, honestly. I think it's because I needed time to settle down after such a big trip! I am just now starting to wrap my brain around how awesome it was. My sister and I had a great time traveling around, but we also had a great time together. It was nice to have time away from all the usual distractions and be able to enjoy each other. Epic, people, EPIC!

Yesterday, I went to dinner with Kacey (Kacey's Kitchen). It's great because we're both trying to eat our way through our cool Okinawa Cafe Book... don't judge! Kacey is one step ahead of me because she has the updated version, which is great because we are always finding and picking new places to try! Last night was no exception and we found our way to Monoca, an adorable little cafe in Kitanakagusuku.
