Hitting the Ground

February 29, 2012

As the crow flies, it is 6,200 miles from London to Phnom Penh (or an oddly pleasing 10,009 kilometres). As the super-budget traveller flies, it’s 28 hours door-to-door, a brutal day-and-a-bit of queuing, impertinent and soul-crushing security checks, endless duty free shops and all the other accoutrements of torture that make up airline travel today. It struck me at about hour 20 that any friends who come out to see us are going to have to really want to see us. We’re going to have to lay on fire-eating tiger shows, banquets and possibly give sight to the blind to justify their investment in getting here in terms of both time and money.
