Midwest Road Trip

Personally, I’ve never been to the midwest, I mean I lived in Colorado for several years but was too young to drive myself around. My mother and I arrived in Las Vegas in the evening and checked into the Bellagio, purely for convenience as our tour guide for the Grand Canyon, would pick us up from

Cambodia was the second country we stopped at while backpacking Southeast Asia. I loved Cambodia and had no trouble crossing the border from Vietnam. We immediately stopped at Angkor Wat. My friend Sean is a huge fan of Laura Croft (No seriously, he has a tattoo about her), so he was ecstatic when we arrived.
