What a simple life teaches

Hina and I have traveled in Cambodia for more than 50 days so far. When we travel, we can’t bring everything we want because we move one place to another place. This teaches us a simple life.

Hina can sleep anywhere as long as it’s not too hot. We stayed in villages, where they have no air-conditioning or water supply. Sometimes, it was so hot that we woke up in the middle of the night. But we had some sleep. We can say it was enough.

However, during the day, she was dehydrated because she was so excited to play with her friends and she forgot to drink water. My friend carried her to the car.

Water is really important for our life. But we have seen that in Cambodia, tub water system is provided only to the cities or a center of a province. Some people drink rain water, some drink water from the river. We now really appreciate drinking water, and river or pond water for a shower.

While traveling, we have only 4 kinds of clothes, one pair of shoes, and same bags. It’s very simple.

We are happy when we have friends and meet new people.

No school, no grades, no so-called achievement

We Just live a simple life, which tells us what we really need.
