Mariam Arthur's journey to Cannes day one of a 7 flight trip from Cambodia

I can't believe the level of " pre-production"  I did getting ready for this trip - airline tickets (7 flights), bus tickets, hotels, B&Bs, friends to visit, updating geneaology info, arranging cat sitters, house sitters, car parking, banking, goodbyes, laundry... I just felt exhausted yesterday.

I woke up this morning with a list of " last day"  things like locking my computer, washing dishes, etc. I went down to Rory's Pub for a Toastie breakfast. Then I set about accomplishing each task. My goal was to be finished by noon. I locked the door at 1pm.

Riding in the tuk-tuk toward the airport I could finally breathe... my journey had begun!














I am very familiar with Ponchentong airport in Phnom Penh, but I did not know they can not process on-line check-in. I went to pay my exit fee and the wouldn't accept my boarding pass. They told me to go to check in and get a boarding pass, even though the paper I was holding said BOARDING PASS.

So, I waited for the check-in counter to open. It's a shame they don't open sooner - the shops should complain because people who like to come early and lounge often spend more money.

Many people complain about how Air Asia charges for every little thing. But as I sit in comfortable leather seat, I think it is a pretty good idea. I get a low fare and only pay for the extras I want.

As we descend to KL (Kuala Lumpar), there is a bit of turbulence. I tell myself how it is normal and that's why there is a word for it. But the motion still deceives my eyes which see pen and paper while my natural gyroscope reports a different story to my brain.

The landing is smooth and I take a bus to a taxi to my hotel which has a tiny room but is luxurious.
