Cruising Around The World –Thoughts from Koh Rong Island
Written by Kobi Klaf (what a nice change from the norm!)
The island life cannot be fully described in one post. It would have to be a book to deliver what island life brings you. We have lived on Koh Rong Island in Cambodia for over a week and plan to stay much longer. The notation of strolling along the vast beaches, hearing the waves crash on the sand, the Christmas songs slipping from every resident door, and the sounds of the local talking Khmer fills my heart with joy. The island life is diverse and great. For example, today, the Kids and I (Kobi) went fishing and actually caught few fish and believe it or not, ate it! Yesterday we walked to a near lagoon and had an awesome time in the water. Finally Gabi and I had the opportunity to be romantic. We hugged and kissed in the water while ignoring the presence of our kids around us. The is no doubt that living close to an ocean, especially on an cool island, makes you think about where you want to spend your time. It made me think that living like that near the water brings me great deal of pleasure. And this thought brought me back to an old dream I had about cruising the world on a boat. How closer can one be to the water?
We had heard a lot about people who decided to cruise the seven seas on a boat. The most popular ways I guess to cruise the world would be on either sail boat or using a cruise line. In order to run a sail boat, one needs to be certified to be a Skipper. So before we decide to pull my boat’s anchor, learning to run the little machine will come first. However, I can always start cruising around using any good cruise line’s ship. I have been once in one of the those babies and they are HUGE. Basically, you have everything you need on the boat- taking from a adult point of view. But when it comes down to a family, we have to consider our kids’ needs as well which do not include a good bar and a fancy casino. And if we want to “kill” two birds in one shot, what not have a fun cruise that cover the whole family needs.
( We are loving Koh Rong Dive Center beyond words.We recommend them whole-heartedly!)
Along many great cruise lines about there, there is no doubt that Disney Cruises are a great options to excite the whole family. Not only the family enjoy all a cruise can offer, but also enjoy the presence of the famous movies characters all around you (until you want to through them off the boat). Sure that this is not a substitute to the real deal. A visit to Disney Land in Orlando should be on every family’s bucket list.
It actually has been on ours for a very, very long time. We’ve looked up here and there how to get to The Land of Mickey Mouse, OrlandoFunTickets.com is a great site to start looking. I do believe that we are going to visit Disney Land during our next visit in the US otherwise our kids will blame us for everything that is wrong with them when they grow up. One way or another we are f****d! Cheers.
Every taken your kids to Orlando? Ever felt like a bad parent for not doing it?
