Welcome to my blog where I write about all sorts of random things regarding life as an expat in Cambodia. I am currently living in Kampot, working as a freelance writer and running an education outreach program based in a children’s village. Cliché? Perhaps, but I will endeavour to post witty, insightful, and interesting blog entries about what I get up to over the forthcoming year … or longer.
So I’m Ruth, I’m 27 and have a Masters by Research in history, and I’m obsessed with Cambodia. In fact it was the subject of my 58,000 word thesis I completed in August 2014. I believe myself to have a fairly comprehensive knowledge of the country’s recent history and culture today but continue to learn and strengthen my understanding with each passing day. If you’re interested in travel, the expat lifestyle, charity work, South East Asia (and Cambodia more specifically), recent historical events, and random musings then I’d like to think this blog is for you.
