26 June – Beng Mealea, Cambodia

Our visit to the 12th century Angkor temple of Beng Mealea was a real highlight. It was abandoned centuries ago and the jungle has all but swallowed it. Even though many of the massive structures have collapsed, it is still a very impressive temple complex. Trees, bushes and vines grow everywhere and are completely intertwined with the stone structures. We had the place to ourselves and felt like real explorers!
