I'm trying not to be entirely autistic about beach vacationing

We're in Otres Beach, near Sihanoukville, Cambodia. This is a resortey area, but it is the quietest and nicest beach around Sihanoukville.
Jay: So what do you do at this beach?
Me: I don't know. I don't know what do you do at any beach. What do you do at the beach?
Jay: What do you mean, "what do you do at the beach?"?
Me: Everyone's just sitting around! I guess you sit around for a while. And swim for a while. Sometimes you have to eat some food. Then what?

But this confused spell only lasted a short time. So the food is very good, first of all. You can also drink coffee or beer. Swimming is fun. I've caught up on all my internetting. You can walk on the beach. Also you can rent things. I went paddleboarding, where you can stand up on a board and paddle like a gondolier. And we've played a lot of chess. We're evenly matched, so that is fun.

We are staying here, "Mushroom Point." It's very good.

It's a nice place! Really relaxed, quiet, not crowded. Spending only two days here is a little rushed, but I could see losing a lot of time if we didn't have a definite ending point, and there are things to do and places to go! Phnom Penh tomorrow, Singapore the next day, and then Australia.


  1. Haha. I enjoyed reading about your confusion about the beach. Don't you know that the reason most people go to the beach is so they don't have to DO anything?! haha I guess you're not lazy enough.

    Our paths are almost converging! See you in... oh geez less than a week! :)

  2. I can relate to the beach confusion. That is why they invented frisbee and trackball. And volleyball. And football, sometimes played in stadiums.
    Crikey, bring them to Cairns.
