In the past twelve months Godfrey has been contracted to agricultural work in remote Queensland. In that time Godfrey has continued to explore opportunities in Cambodia and to be excited by the diversity of projects and entrepeneurial skills of young Cambodians as they start their own business ventures and participate in their growing economy.

Cambodia is a paradise for tourists with a love of food and wine and wine, and wine shops in Phnom Penh are highly developed and very competitively priced. An active and exciting bar scene provides ample opportunity for drinks and making new friends. The best Western food in Phnom Penh at Black Bamboo..not the most beautiful of restaurants…but absolutely delicious tapas style food and quite spectacular ice cream, meaning dessert is not to be missed.
