Cambodia Kingdom of Wonder

This year, we visited Cambodia for the second time in three years. And this time, we started in Kuala Lumpur (the home of Air Asia airlines: who are at this moment building a whole new terminal at Kuala Lumpur Airport). Air Asia is one of cheapest airlines to fly with, when visiting Asian countries. From Kuala Lumpur we flew out to Phnom Penh and just before we landed in this city, we saw the beautiful landscape of Cambodia from the air and within minutes we had landed in the so-called ‘Kingdom of Wonder’. Before entering Cambodia, you’ll need a visa. It’s possible to buy one for $20 dollars at the airport. Officially you do need a photo on your visa, but in our experience you can also pay approximately $3 dollars extra and enter the country without a photo. It’s funny how this works.

After 3 years you can see that Cambodia and especially Phnom Penh has developed greatly. In Phnom Penh we stayed in the Billabong Hotel, which is a very good hotel with a nice swimming pool and a friendly staff. It’s not what we would call cheap, but the high price does get you just about anything that you’d might need. The rooms are very clean and modern.

It is a lovely place to relax, especially after having had a heavy day visiting the Tuol Sleng (means: “Hill of the Poisonous Trees” ) Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields. TravelTelly.com

Killing Tree, Killing Fields of Choeung Ek


When visiting these sites, it’s hard to grasp why people could do this kind of cruelty to each other. It made us feel humble and appreciate our freedom a lot more! Khmer Rouge Regime* From the year 1975 to 1979 the Khmer Rouge regime was the name of followers of the leading communistic party of Cambodia, led by Pol Pot. The Khmer Rouge wanted to radically reform Cambodia into an agrarianbased community. This means that people living in cities were deported to the countryside to work on farmlands. Together with the local population they had to work on the land and as a result of this forced labour, almost 2 million Cambodians (20% of total population) were killed. The Cambodian people were tortured, murdered, captured or died as a result of starvation. The Khmer Rouge regime led by Pol Pot was the most lethal regime of the 20th century.

Stupa of Skulls

The Killing Fields* Near the city Phnom Penh, you can find The Killing Fields of Choeung Ek. Not just here, but at several places around Cambodia you can find these sites, where many people were killed and buried during the Khmer Rouge Regime. The Killing Fields of Choeung Ek are now a famous tourist attraction, as tourists can imagine how many people were killed during the regime and learn more about the violent history of Cambodia. These Killing Fields near Phnom Penh are just one of the thousands of other killing fields spread over the country. It is now a memorial and a large area surrounded by farmland. The Killing Fields contain mass graves of approximately 20,000 Cambodians. The bordering trees were used for hangings. Even though the Killing Fields are not a fun place to visit while on vacation, we do think it is a must visit. It made us realize just how lucky we are that we can live in freedom and it helped us to appreciate the beauty of modern Cambodia even more.

Tuol Sleng Prison

Tuol Sleng Prison (Genocide Museum)* Until 1975, Tuol Sleng Prison (near Phnom Penh) was actually used as a high school. In that year, the high school was transformed into

of

Rouge.

Many people (mostly Cambodians) were captured and interrogated. Though most of the prisoners were innocent citizens, they would often confess to a crime they didn’t commit, because of the torture. Today, the Tuol Sleng Prison is a museum. Room after room you’ll see photographs of men, women and children who were all prisoners of Tuol Sleng once. An estimate of 20,000 people were detained here (and often killed as a result). This is why the Tuol Sleng prison is now also known as the ‘Genocide’ Museum. *source: visitcambodja.nl

Digislider first impression First of all, the digislider is the best quality/ price combination. It does everything what you expect (and more) from a motorized slider with a few downsides. The biggest downside is its weight. The rail is fairly heavy with its 100cm in length and its accessories. And if you travel a lot, as we do, it becomes a little bit of a hassle.

It is an easy 5kg extra to carry along with all your other gear. Setting up the digislider is relatively easy and gets easier when you’ve done it a couple of times. Two different motors are available for the digislider, the fast motor and the slow motor. The fast one goes up to 15 seconds per meter and at its slowest at 3 minutes per meter. The slow motor at its slowest point goes 4 hours per meter, ideal for time-lapses. The build quality is fine and if they improve the slider over time (lighter and 1 motor for fast and slow slides) it’s good slider for that price.

Become a Wintersport Hero!

Frank Keyner

Frank is the person in our TravelTelly team who loves to take different crazy shots with the GoPro camera! Frank is our wintersport cameraman and has been shooting, testing and playing with this little camera since the beginning of GoPro and uses it especially during his wintersport travels. You can see two of his videos on our TravelTelly Vimeo channel. “Never miss a moment! The GoPro is a ‘shoot and forget’ camera. Just turn it on and do your thing. I can’t remember how many times, when I was reviewing my footage, I have come across moments I didn’t know I captured. Those moments are priceless.. Also, it allows you to get creative! Because the GoPro knows how to take a beating, you don’t have to worry if it gets wet or falls down on a concrete floor 10 meters below. Because of this, and because it is so small, it opened a whole new way of filming for me. So it was a no brainer for us to upgrade to the Hero 3 black edition, which we will be using to film our new winter sports video in February.”– Frank Keyner 20

TravelTelly.com


Testing the GoPro Hero 3 We are very excited about the new GoPro Hero 3 camera. We will take a bunch of GoPro’s with us to make some shots, and test it to see what it is capable of during wintersports. GoPro is, if you ask us, the best camera for extreme sports and also the best to make some crazy and difficult angle shots with. For TravelTelly this is a cool camera gadget, which we love to bring with us while filming around the globe. If you like to share your GoPro experience with us, join us on Facebook. We love to hear about your experience and see a video you made using the GoPro Hero 3. Soon we will return with a review of the Hero 3!

Enjoy the wintersport, Heroes! The GoPro is a small (ultra) HD camera. Many people use it on their surf and snowboard, on the car or motor, or even in an airplane or to dive with. This camera is the best you can have when it comes to filming extreme sports or difficult angles. Next to that, the GoPro is very small and available for a really good price, so even buying a couple cameras might be a good option if you’re making a special production where you have a budget.

African wildlife Funfacts

Did you know‌

Addo Elephant Park, South Africa

1. Did you know that elephants are the most intelligent animals of Africa? Elephants have a great learning ability, an amazing memory, they know how to mourn, they take care of another elephant’s calf, they have a sense of humor and there are even some elephants who can make a piece of art.

2. Did you know that Zebras only live in Africa? People have tried to domesticate zebras but have never succeeded. Zebras have an instinct to panic in dangerous situations, this habit is really hard to break and that’s also why zebras are not being kept as pets.

3. Did you know that the most popular place in Africa to go on safari is Kenya? The Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya is the most popular place to go on safari. Because the park is relatively small, you have the best chance to spot a wide variety of wildlife. There are loads of wildlife you might get to see on safari in the reserve, like: the big 5, zebras, warthogs, impalas, baboons, giraffes, wildebeests, hippos and crocodiles.

SYDNEY

Opera House

Sydney (situated in New South Wales, Australia) is a great city if you like modern architecture, nice people, a relaxed atmosphere and a beautiful setting. This is also why we love Sydney and why we will keep visiting this city. Not only is Sydney a fun place to visit, it also offers many interesting photographic- and film scenes. There’s so much to choose from that you should definitely spend enough time here, at least a week. This way, you won’t just see the city’s most famous icons like the Opera House, but you also get a chance to discover some of its less known sights, like the Anzac Bridge. Here are some photography/film tips for you, to make sure that you’ll see, capture and experience Sydney at its best!

TravelTelly.com


Best Photo/Video

SPOTS

photo spot: from the Harbour Bridge

1. Walk along the waterside to the end of the Botanic Gardens and you’ll get a beautiful view of the Sydney Skyline. Just before the end, stop and take a picture of the Opera House with in the background the equally famous Harbour Bridge. Walk into the Gardens and see the flying foxes hanging in the trees.

2. Do the Coastal Walk. Start at Bondi Beach and walk all the way to Coogee Beach (while passing by Bronte Beach and Tamarama Beach as well). Experience Sydney’s most famous beaches.

3. Climb the Harbour Bridge. Enjoy the wide views of the harbor on top of this iconic bridge (134 m above sea level). Go to the top of the Sydney Tower (305 m), if you don’t want to spend too much money. Much cheaper than the Harbour Bridge and you’ll still get a top view of the whole city.

4. Go to Hyde Park. Shoot some footage of Sydney’s other icons, like the Anzac Memorial and St. Mary’s Cathedral.

5. Visit one of Sydney’s lesser known neighborhoods, Pyrmont. Walk through the park and take photos/videos from the other side of the city, including the majestic Anzac Bridge.

Exploring

PARIS through our

camera lenses

In September of this year, TravelTelly cameraman Frank and I went on a short city trip to Paris. We were planning on filming and photographing the most important highlights of the city, including: the Eiffel tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, The Notre Dame and the Sacre Coeur.

On the 7th, we arrived in Paris in the evening and our first stop was the Eiffel tower. Even when it’s already dark outside, the Eiffel tower is still a fun place to hang out, especially in weekends. Groups of people just hang out on the grass, have some drinks and play guitar. This “park” is just in front of the Eiffel tower and a great place for us to film at. After filming from this spot we walked to the other side of the tower, where you will find a fountain and a building called Palais de Chaillot. From here you have an awesome view of the Eiffel tower. It is also one of the busiest places to be in Paris, so it can be hard to find your own spot to film or photograph. Filming and photographing from the Eiffel tower at night is one of the best things you can do when visiting Paris, as the Eiffel tower has a cool light show and looks beautiful at night. The traffic in front of the tower is also great to shoot, especially when making a time lapse video or taking photos with long shutter speeds.

From the Palais de Chaillot, we walked to the famous Arc de Triomphe, which is

Paris at Night

not too far from here. On the internet you always see these amazing photos of the Arc de Triomphe by night, with busy traffic in front of it. This is the same picture as we wanted to film, but it was so hard to find a good spot. Probably the best places around the Arc to film or photograph from, are the crosswalks. But the problem here is, that every crosswalk has a traffic light, which doesn’t make your video or photo any better. We decided to walk to the other side of the Arc the Triomphe, where you will find a small park. The view from here was pretty good, as we could see the Arc as well as all the traffic, though some traffic lights and traffic signs were still standing in the way of taking some great shots. On the 8th, we walked over the famous Champs Elysees to the Louvre. The Louvre is a nice place to be at. Many tourists visit the Louvre so it is really crowded, but it’s definitely a cool place to film a time lapse. The Tuileries are situated in front of the Louvre. From the Tuileries you also have a good view of the Arc de Triomphe and you can even see the top of the Eiffel tower from here.

Arc de Triomphe

When walking up to the Louvre, you walk through a beautiful park with tall trees, fountains and people relaxing on benches. The Louvre itself is amazing, with the modern pyramid in front of the old palace. At night, the pyramid is illuminated as well as the palace. Even though the museum is closed at night, The Louvre is still worth a visit as many tourists are hanging out here and you can shoot some fun night footage here. From the Louvre we walked to the Notre Dame. To walk up there was really beautiful as you walk along the Seine, and we definitely felt like we were in Paris, one of the most romantic cities in the world. We found the Notre Dame itself a bit disappointing though. The building is nice and instantly reminds you of the Hunchback of the Notre Dame, but the place around it wasn’t that great and there weren’t many good spots from where you can film or photograph this famous church. For us it took too much of our time to film here, but if you have enough time and are just doing a city trip, the Notre Dame is still a nice place to visit. In the evening we visited the Sacre Coeur, which is situated just outside the city centre. The Sacre Coeur is the highest place in Paris after the Eiffel tower and is an amazing church, found on top of an hill. Hundreds of people are relaxing on the steps, enjoying the view and listening to music or watching street performances. From the Sacre Coeur you have a good view of the Paris skyline, but the Eiffel tower was a bit hard to see. If you want to see the Eiffel tower from here, you should visit the Sacre Coeur from the inside and have a look from the dome of the church. Filming and photographing on top of this hill at night was amazing, as the colours of the city changed every couple of minutes as well as the mood and the atmosphere.

Pont Neuf near the Notre Dame

On the 9th, Frank and I only had a few hours left in Paris, before our train would leave from the Gare du Nord station. So we decided to have a day without filming and just relax for a bit. We visited the Eiffel tower once more and bought a ticket for the top deck, from which you have an awesome view of all of Paris, including the Arc de Triomphe, Domes des Invalides (in which you will find the tomb of Napoleon), the Seine and much more. The deck below the top deck actually has a better view, because you have more space to walk around and there are no gates to mess up your view. It’s not easy to film from here, because you don’t have enough space for all your equipment. Photographing is a lot easier, as you don’t need as much gear as with filming.

Champ de Mars

PA R I S

All in all we had a great time filming in Paris and the city is definitely worth a visit. We only had 3 days (well, 2.5 actually), which is way too short to see everything. If you want to film or photograph in Paris, we would recommend you take at least 4 full days. Paris is a lot bigger than you’d might think and even though the city has a great metro system, it still takes up a lot of your time to travel between the city’s highlights. Taking the metro is really easy and the last one leaves around 1 am. This makes it a good way of transport to explore Paris at night as well. You should also make sure you have enough time to relax between all the places you want to visit, because Paris makes you tired. Visiting Paris in the beginning of September was great. It was not too hot, but the sun was still shining and it wasn’t too crowded with tourists. Paris definitely surprised us!

Travel Book of the month

Every country has around 4 photos and gives basic information, like: -best time to visit; -things to see; -things to do; -its capital and its residents; -map and much more.

The Travel Book is a huge and heavy book written by Lonely Planet and has 447 pages. It describes every single country in the world, with a total of 229 countries. With 817 images, this is a book that shows you what a country is really like, without showing you just the tourist attractions. Even though each country only has a small part of text to read, it actually explains almost everything you need to know before you will decide if you want to visit a country. It is a book with which you will discover countries you may have never heard of before. Though when you decide which country you want to visit, you will still have to buy a regular travel guide, as this book doesn’t give enough information for that. It gives the basic facts about each country as well as a small impression. The photos in ‘The Travel Book’ are amazing, though sometimes it remains unclear what that specific country has to offer, because not all countries have photos of landscapes. This is the only thing that we believe could have been an improvement in this book. The book itself looks great and is easy written. We recommend that you buy the book with hardcover, because it’s quite big and heavy for a paperback, which will damage your book more easily. We are sure you will like this Lonely Planet book and it should be in every traveler’s bookcase!

A Journey to Antarctica - National Geographic Expeditions.

Dream Journey It’s probably one of the most expensive trips that you can undertake, but it’s also one that is (or should be) on everyone’s bucket lists! Antarctica is a place that speaks to everyone’s imagination, and this is no exception for TravelTelly either. We would love to visit this

white and icy environment at least once in our lifetime. National Geographic offers some great expeditions to Antarctica, though there is one negative part: all trips to Antarctica cost a lot of money, as does this one. This 14 day National Geographic expedition to Antarctica is one of our dream journeys and we hope do to this one day.

Expedition description by National Geographic Traveling aboard the state-of-the-art National Geographic Explorer, encounter the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula and the surrounding islands and waterways. Glide around enormous tabular icebergs by Zodiac, walk along beaches covered with thousands of penguins, and kayak amid abundant marine life. A diverse team of experts, including naturalists, historians, and a National Geographic photographer, will accompany each expedition aboard the National Geographic Explorer.

Trip Highlights View magnificent mountains, towering icebergs, and ice formations that make up the dramatic Antarctic landscape. Cruise aboard sturdy Zodiac landing craft in search of leopard seals. Kayak in protected waters, paddling around icebergs as penguins swim nearby. Walk on shore amid thousands of penguins, including gentoo, Adélie, and chinstrap. Explore the world’s last great wilderness in the company of a team of top naturalists.

Price tag Costs of this expedition range between $11,000 and $22,000. Exclusive airfare. nationalgeographicexpeditions.com
