Motorcycle Trip Through Cambodia – Blog + Video
January 22, 2016
This post doesn’t relate exactly to human and organizational learning but I thought I would share this on my blog. I finally got around to editing the nearly five hours of video footage from my motorcycle trip through Cambodia in May 2014. My friend Davor and I went to Cambodia for two weeks to ride around the country in Honda 250 Baja dirt bikes. We started in Phnom Penh, traveled east to Mondulkiri, around the country to Siem Reap, down to Sihanoukville, and back to Phnom Penh. We ended our trip by playing with the Bangkok-based ultimate frisbee team (the Soidawgz) in the Mekong Cup.
At times, the trip felt like the greatest thing ever. Other times, all we could think about was finding food and a hostel. Riding a motorbike in an unknown place takes a lot of focus (especially off-road like on “the jungle road”). We used a GoPro camera with a chest mount and I think it would be cool to have a helmet mount.
I tried to incorporate as much speaking in the video as possible but I spent too much time filming the road and not enough time capturing the other aspects of the trip. And while I tried to keep the movie short, 13 minutes needed to be shared.
What do you think? Interested in coming on the next trip?
