Sam and Hannah
We really appreciate that many of you have expressed an interest in giving gifts. We have set up this registry in the hope that your generosity can help us take a honeymoon to Cambodia and Laos in January 2015. These countries have long topped our list of places to travel. We are thrilled to finally have a chance to visit them, and to go knowing it is made possible by those we love. Thank you!Cambodia Cambodia Luang Prabang, Laos Phonsavan, Laos Phnom Penh, Cambodia
The real hurdle to traveling in Southeast Asia is always the flight there and back. We'd be grateful for your help with the journey.
Phnom Penh is supposed to be a hectic city and the Pavillion would make a serene landing pad. Located in the historic center of town behind the Royal Pagoda and down the street from the National Mu...

This Pol Pot prison turned museum documents the Khmer Rouge's reign. It is a must-see for any visitor to Cambodia and will help give us a sense of the country's complex past and present.
This flight will save us six plus hours of driving and give us an extra day to spend in Siem Reap, touring Ankor Wat.
We've both visited a lot of ruins, but Angkor Wat is the largest religious monument in the world and may be the most amazing example either of us will ever see. We are hoping to make a three-day vi...
Located a short drive from Ankor Wat, this hotel coordinates tours of the landmark and is also a nice place to relax after a day of walking. The Sala Lodges are a series of beautifully updated hous...
This boat ride sounds like too much fun to pass up. The river runs through beautiful scenery and there are all kinds of animals and birds that live in the trees along the banks.

After a lot of exploring, we're looking forward to spending some time just relaxing at the beach in Kep. This beach hotel was designed by Khmer pupils of Le Corbusier and is stunning. It also offer...
We've both seen temples and we've both seen caves, but one inside the other will be a first for both of us. These 7th century limestone caves are a counterpoint to the grandeur of Angkor, showing a...
Luang Prabang is famous for its hotels and this is one of the best. Located a few blocks from the historic district, it would be a treat during our time in Laos.
At the Night Market, the Hmong come to sell their handmade wares. Maybe we'll pick up some new napkins for our house or a lampshade to replace the one that Milo ate.
We'd like to take a full-day cooking class at Tamarind, one of Luang Prabang's best restaurants. The day begins with a trip to the market, followed by lots of cooking and eating in Tamarind's garde...
We'd like to take pictures of all the memories that we make on this trip. It would be great to have a quality camera to bring with us!
We'd like to travel light to Cambodia and Laos, but we need some new carry-on luggage to make this happen.
To make our trip organized, easy, and comfortable, we're planning on buying handy travel adapters, a passport holder, and maybe an emergency travel blanket. Everyone needs an emergency blanket.
