– Location- Svey Rieng, Cambodia
– Weather- 28-39 clear and hot

Today I crossed the border into Cambodia from Vietnam. There are several over land crossing points along the border including a couple up in the central highlands I cycled past a few days back. Thanks to a quirk of the Cambodian e-visa system I could leave Cambodia through any of those but only enter at Bevat. The entry was swift if for some dubious characters trying to get money out of me. On the Cambodian side of the border the dusty highway lead out a stream of plush yet falling down casino buildings. It seems a feature of this part of Asia.

Tomorrow I’ll reach the capital, Phnom Penh, to stock up on supplies to reach Bangkok next week.

Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
