Time flies when you are having fun, and then writing a blog comes in second line. Now 2 months have passed, we are finished with our second exam, and now we are on our second and last vacation. I ended up doing 2 days in Phnom Penh to see the Killing Fields and S21, and then I headed down south to the paradise I fell in love with on my last vacation; Koh Rong. I still love it here, it is such an amazing place. I'll shower you with photos later, the wifi is waay to slow for that! Now I am gonna go and enjoy this wonderful Island! See you!

Last night we finally arrived at Koh Rong, and so far I love it here. We are staying at the Paradise Bungalow side of the Island, which is the side were the youth and the backpackers hang out. Basically this place is one big white beach, and a few bungalows. It is sort of primitive, but that's fun for a few days right? We are currently staying at the guesthouse White Rose, where we have no wi-fi, and only electricity between 5 and 11 o'clock in the evening. But that does not matter, because you barely stay in the room anyway. You are at the beach, snorkeling, diving or hanging out with tons of other people at one of the very few bars/restaurants. And the most amazing thing is actually all the amazing people you meet, I've already gotten to know many lovely persons from places like Denmark, Australia, Germany, Holland, Britain and so on... I could probably go on forever! I'll shower you with a ton of pictures of this place some other day, so hold on! Now I will continue on enjoying this great Island!

Yesterday we finished our first exam in the subject "Introduction to the business of travel", I'm not so sure how it went though... I think I'll pass, but we will see if I get a decent grade or not. But now it is VACATION! It is gonna be awesome, me and my roomie, Kamilla, is headed down south to Sihanoukville. Several from our class is headed down there, so we will meet up with some of them throughout the trip, but to begin with it is only going to be the two of us. It is going to be lovely to just relax for some time, and I've heard it is very beautiful down there, so I am totally excited to be going there!

While I were in Bangkok I visited the Grand Palace. Which was built by King Rama I back in 1782, and the kings kept on living there until 1925. The current king, King Rama IX, lives at the Chitralada Palace, but most of the official events is still held at the Grand Palace. I was told that this was one of the 'must-see' places in Bangkok, but truth be told, I do not think so. It was seriously crowded, even though it was low-season. It felt more like a tourist trap. Some of the buildings is of course spectacular, but there is so many spectacular temples and so on in Bangkok that it did not feel too different. Most temples does not have a entry fee, but some do, and the most expensive one I ran into was Wat Pho, which costed 100 Baht. So compared to this the Grand Palace was a bit expensive with a 500 Baht entry fee(not compared to Norway though, where 500 Baht is almost 100NOK). But personally I loved places like Wat Arun and Golden Mount quite a lot more.
