Owner of Bloom Garden Guest House and Bloom Cambodia Bags. I started Bloom guesthouse in 2010 after living in Cambodia since 2006. I first came to start a social enterprise Bloom Cambodia to provide jobs to single mothers in Cambodia. Through my blog people were emailing me asking for accommodation and tour options and also to meet me, so I thought, why not start a guesthouse? I love meeting people from all over the world, but as I am busy with Bloom Bags, I may not be able to meet all my guests. However, I am always happy to meet guests when I can, so please let my team know when I am not at the guesthouse and they can contact me. My motto in life is "Sonder n. -- the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk."
