More than 2 years ago I visited Cambodia for the first time with my then boyfriend Rick. We were there for a week, and spent at least half of it exploring the ruins outside of Siem Reap.
If you have not been to Cambodia, I highly recommend it! It is indeed a poor country, poorer than most countries I have visited until this point, but the people were really kind there, especially in Siem Reap which is the main city/town outside of all the Angkor Wat ruins. It rather cheap to visit everything and there is just so much to see. We were there 4 nights, and still couldn’t see even half of it. The ruins just seem to go on and on and on..
This video was one of the first times he and I ever tried to make videos together, and as you can see by watching this one, it is in documentary format. This was not easy for us to make, and we spent most of the previous night preparing what I would say when we were out within the ruins the day we filmed this. It was freaking hot that day, too! As soon as we were finished filming we would grab a beer and drink it down quickly to relax since, quite honestly, filming this is a heck of a lot harder than it looks and was a bit stressful for me.
I have to say though, when this video was complete, I was quite happy with the results. I had never done anything like this before, going out and explaining all about the history of ancient temple ruins in another country on camera. I was happy I was able to pull it off, and proud of the quality of video produced. It is not terribly exciting
