Dawn To Dusk Travels

SIMPLY FOLLOWING THE SUNSHINE

  Hi There, I'm Louise. 

 

I've been following my urge to travel since I was young, starting off as the typical Brit abroad in the all-inclusive hotel in Europe, to finding my feet in Asia and trying not to get lonely when I eventually set off on my own.

Nowadays, it's half of my life, I work haphazardly to travel and when I'm not, I'm thinking about it.  I'm too stubborn in wanting to enjoy life to work consistently, take the money and run, and why 4 months seems to be the longest I go for.

 

The last few years have been spent 'trying' to make it a more permanent thing, being influenced by travel vloggers and digital nomads but having little money and the ability to  procrastinate at every opportunity has left me with questions like "Do I really want to travel all of the time?" and "Why have I not figured this out yet?".  

One thing I do know is that I love to tell stories. If it's not the images we see that make our jaws drop then it is the words we read that transport us to another place. On Dawntodusktravels I simply want to inspire some good old fashioned wanderlust, bringing back the real world hidden behind the gloss and glamour of travel these days.

Following on from the first half of this post, I have definitely been busting my juvenile thoughts on what I assumed I’d find this side of the Tonle Sap Lake. I can unquestionably say that I plan to return to Cambodia agai...

“So, what did you think of the place”?

“Did it live up to the hype”?

“What’s so special about it”?

“Was it worth it”?

These are all the common questions you get asked if you have just returned from a destination that someone e...

In amongst the parched, brittle grass and the flourishing deep green Chankiri trees, I could hear the songs of flocks of birds all around me.

Hidden in the trees their lullabies drifted onto the lake in the gentle breeze. T...
