Angkor Wat?

Expedition phase was an absolute adventure. One of the many many things that stood out was our journey to Angkor Wat. Our journey begins July 23rd 2018 (2nd day of our Expedition phase) at 4.30 in the morning. One might wonder: Why so early? Well, in order to beat the tourist rush it would be ideal to go early. But wait – the story gets even better. In addition to getting up super early, our Dragons group biked to Angkor Wat. Initially I was a bit worried about biking so early in the morning, especially since it was still dark out. Luckily, the streets were practically empty which made me feel a bit more at ease. In total, our bike ride took about an hour and a half to finally reach Angkor Wat. Although our group was a bit sweaty and slightly muddy, the ride to the temple was definitely worth it. After the long bike ride, I was filled with a sense of satisfaction and excitement when we finally reached Angkor Wat. Nothing could beat the thrill of the bike ride followed by the reward of the sunrise over the ancient temple.
