I don’t usually take tours, but when I do it’s to visit ..
The Kampot area, prior to the Khmer Rouge regime, was known for its peppercorn production and slowly the pepper plantations have been put back into production. Kampot province is also one of the major fruit growing regions of Cambodia producing durian, jackfruit, rambutan and more. I wanted to visit a pepper plantation and fruit farm and it was easier to join a tour than try to find these places on my own. I was completely underwhelmed by the pepper tour and the only ripe fruit we saw was one lone jackfruit. We also visited salt fields, a cave and Rabbit Island off the coast of Kep; unfortunately most of these multi-stop tours require spending more time in transit than anything else. Fortunately the Cambodian countryside is extremely beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed the company of my two chatty Canadian tour mates. The best part of the tour was the massage I got on the beach on Rabbit Island, it of course was not included in the price of the tour.

I decided to play with my filters and over saturated every photo from my tour. I see why people love #filters so much. It’s easy to create some really neat or very odd looking results.
