Coming form a western culture, the realities of traveling in South East Asia is a sounding for the compassion you have as well as the degradation you can bear whiteness to. After passing through customs at Angkor International Airport you immediately get a glimpse of the ignominy in which the descendants of the once great Khmer Empire live. Gaunt men with beautifully symmetrical faces and large eyes hustle every weary traveler as they exit the airport with an unsettling frantic desperation.

Around the base of the glacier large inland lakes form floating icebergs thousands of years old.

What can I say that hasn’t been said about Arches National Park? Featured in literature, paintings, films, commercials, and thousands upon millions of photographs. Almost every person I have spoken to in my life that has done any traveling in the western United States has made the trip to arches, and rightfully so. The park is home to over 2,000 natural sandstone arches and just as many more unusual sandstone formations created by millions of year’s geological events.
