Fulfilling a dream

Big news...for me anyway. After nearly 8 years, man and boy, at Hanuman Travel & Films, I will bid farewell at the end of this month. When I arrived to live full-time in Cambodia in 2007, it was Hanuman who took me under their wing and gave me a new focus, after I had spent 31 years in the Banking industry in England. It has been a very fulfilling 8 years working in the tourism and film industries but now it's time to move on and from the start of next month, I will be working full-time for Phnom Penh Crown FC at our new headquarters at RSN Stadium in Tuol Kork. Having worked part-time and spare time for professional clubs in England and Cambodia for nearly 40 years - loving every minute of it, even the bad times - I always secretly wanted to work full-time in football, so my dream will soon come true. Even at my age, you can still fulfill your dreams. A lesson for all. To mark this occasion, here's a picture of me just after I had started as the programme editor/ public address announcer/ radio presenter/ newspaper journalist for my hometown team in the mid-70s. Doesn't time fly when you are having fun...

Congratulations Andy! I've followed your blog and Cambodia Tales for at least 10 years, and enjoyed reading about your adventures temple-hopping in the cambodian jungle. I was in Cambodia for the first time this past January, and discovered many temples in and around Angkor, due to your advice. Will write additional comments in the next few days, but I did want to let you know that there are many people out there reading with much enjoyment your adventures in Cambodia - and here's to hoping that your transfer from the travel industry to the world of football will still leave you with enough time to report on temples and other wonders of Cambodia. All the best from Canada,
Jean-Philippe
