About us


Thanks for visiting our website.

book5(1)We are Frank (Skip) and Gabrielle (Gabi) Yetter, travelers, foodies and former US media executives. In 2010 we bagged life in the US, sold our house and gave away our stuff and set out for Southeast Asia, setting up shop in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We have volunteered for non-government organizations, travelled extensively throughout the country and region and made friends and contacts in Cambodia and other parts of SE Asia that will endure for the rest of our lives.

Gabi has written extensively for local and regional print and online publications and completed two books, one on moving to Cambodia (The Definitive Guide to Moving to Southeast Asia: Cambodia); the other on Cambodian desserts (The Sweet Tastes of Cambodia). Skip has written for local online media and has provided consulting support in media, public relations and business strategy to several local businesses. We are now working together on a book called Just Go! about life changes focusing on our own experiences as well as those of dozens of like-minded individuals and families around the world who have agreed to be subjects in our book.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, Frank and Gabi. And for opening up part of the world that doesn’t get much exposure in the U.S. I really enjoy reading about your adventures. Keep them coming!

  • Hi Frank & Gabbi,
    It was quite a pleasure to finally meet you both!
    I hope to stay in touch and certainly hope I will see you again. I will include herein my direct contact information should you desire to get in touch or simply say hello. Please let me know what and when your daughter’s next theatre production is. It’s obvious her talents stem from good stock. 😉 You both must be very proud of her accomplishments.
    I hope you both enjoy the 1775 newspaper I gave you. If you comb through it you will find articles mentioning the goins on of the battle of Bunker Hill.
    Give the Cambodian people a hug from me and all my best wishes. Take care and I’ll hopefully talk to you soon. 🙂

    Dear Gabbi & Frank,

    I’ve just arrived in Phnom Penh with my boyfriend. We were both teachers in NYC and after 8 years teaching inner city kids we needed a break from stress and were in desperate need of an international adventure. I noticed on your profile that you volunteered or worked for some NGO’s. Do you have any suggestions about places to volunteer in Cambodia during the next month? We’re extremely flexible with travel plans. I noticed you’re traveling in India but if you get a spare moment I would gladly welcome your advice.

    Good luck in your travels!

  • I’m going to India in November 2013 and find your comments very interesting and helpful. However I noticed on TripAdvisor that you recommended a Pankaj Singh as a driver but you mentioned other drivers in your blog. Just checking to make sure the comments, all good, about Pankaj were your’s and not a tout. Thanks for letting me know. Sam from Montana. I was in India with the Peace Corps in 1967 and missed seeing the Taj Mahal but am going back to see it.

  • Hello Frank and Gabi,
    I am happy to read through your life path in adventure time after leaving us in Cambodia.
    You done well and thanks again for your services !
    Happy day every day!

We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in Cambodia, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
