I have long given up trying to click pictures from a moving bus. I mean I do click a few when I see beautiful landscape but without much hope. Most of them get blurred. My road trip from Poipet-Siem Reap was an exception. Poipet is on the Thailand-Cambodia border and popular for road crossing. The sky was full of white fluffy clouds, and with the rolling paddy fields it was a magical combination. It kept me glued to my window seat!
Scenery from the Poipet-Siem Reap Road
I liked the landscape so much that I tried to click pictures in earnest. There are only three good ones to show for all my effort. But I am happy that I gave it a try! I was also very sleepy from constant late nights which was all my fault, I had to update my blog, Facebook and Twitter every day, that meant late nights. A moving vehicle’s rhythm is so soothing to already sleepy eyes but I managed to stay awake all through the trip and glued to the window. It was that beautiful!
Paddy Fields, Poipet Siem Reap Road, Cambodia
There were so many spots when I want the bus to stop so that I could take a proper picture. But with a bus full of bloggers, if they really allowed us to do that we would reach Siem Reap two days later!
The Scenic Drive, Poipet-Siem Reap, Cambodia
The entire drive was a feast to the eyes! I can only imagine what it would be like to see the fields at sunrise/sunset. I hope I will these fields again, maybe on a trip with my family and soon. The Poipet Siem Reap journey otherwise is of roughly three hours.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
