Smooth ride

Our group of intrepid and very fortunate travellers

To enjoy such a remarkable trip (a 3-day tour of the Southern Cardamom Mountains) for my first time in a helicopter was a real pleasure. The views were spectacular, in every direction, and I was very impressed with the smoothness of the ride even when flying into the headwind. Our pilot was Volker, who was a mine of information and humour throughout the trip. I was lucky enough to get one of the two front seats, because of my smaller weight, and that served to enhance the experience. Helistar did us proud. Here we are before we take off from Phnom Penh airport and a photo of Volker at the controls - click to enlarge.
