Being a travel blogger is amazing, but at times it can be kinda crazy. I was tear gassed in Chile, and now I’m dealing with the Coronavirus here in Cambodia.
How’s it affecting everything? Mostly it hasn’t changed the country. I flew in and they had an extra form to fill in about if I had been to any dodgy or banned countries. That’s about it. To be honest the movie theater had tighter security with temperature scanning.
The government here has just shut down (as of today), the bars and cinemas. With that being a huge source of income for the locals, it can be brutal. Imagine making $200 a month, and then getting laid off for 2 weeks with no pay. The bills, don’t stop coming, do they? My hotel has a private pool, so I’ll probably spend my time swimming.
Travel itself is dodgy. The border to Cambodia closes for all US, Germany, France, Iran, Italy and Spain as of today. The next stop on my travels is Thailand, and while it’s currently accepting people flying from Cambodia, who know’s if it’s still going to continue?
As the world lives gripped in fear, I’m wondering what the travel situation will look like 2 weeks or 2 months from now. As it is though, I’m going to keep enjoying life and retiring in cheap countries. Stay safe everyone, and keep living life.
