Goodbye Cambodia!!!

Well, today is the day. Our lovely Cassy, Emily, and Annais will fly off back home, and say their goodbyes to beautiful Cambodia. We made some incredible memories on the island that will be cherished forever, from swimming in neon bioluminescence to deploying coral pods, to playing with tiny puppies and tiny kids. We enjoyed…



Goodbye island, hello Phnom Penh!

Well, today we said goodbye to our little island paradise 🙁   One last fruity delicious breakfast, a hug for the village kids and we were off on the boat back to the mainland. We waved goodbye to coconut beach, all the local friends we had made and the hard work we had done!  …



Last day on Koh Rong!

Wednesdays blog was written by our very own Annais! This morning we all rolled out of bed groggy and tired. Thankfully we enjoyed a good breakfast of noodles and watermelon.

Feet, braids and team bonding <3I

Yo yo yo Elaura here! Friday was super fabulous as usual on our little island. Right after breakfast we got straight to digging and cementing feet for our coral pods. And let me tell you, there is definitely blood, sweat, tears and possibly human skin from all these popped blisters that went into these pods. After…



The Emily Review!

  Heya, Emily here from Cambodia! Today we hauled a bunch of sand (wet clay) to the bungalow to make cement for the pods. It was dirty/hard work so we really dug into lunch after! The days are going by so fast with so much to do; right after lunch we went out for the…
