The GoodUnlike so many expats, Sherry Ott seems to have a method to her madness. She didn’t just step out from her cubicle one day, never to return. She planned her escape and planned it well. Sherry is a do-to-earth traveler with a sensitive spirit. We anticipated that her entry “Cambodia – If we build it they will come” was going to be another horribly cliched article about the Pol Pot years, corruption and poverty. It actually does contain a lot of that information, but also has lines that show she understands how hard Cambodians are trying to leave their painful past behind. Her Photo Gallery also reflects her keen eye and sensitivity.
The BadWe enjoyed so much about Sherry’s website, it is hard to criticize it. It is well-written, contains mountains of information and has a stunning collection of photographs. Her Travel Store would also be useful to travelers, if those who want to shop for travel books and supplies could find it. Our biggest complaint is that the site seems to suffer from an identity crisis. Is it an informational site or a commercial site? Is it for expats, backpackers or regular tourists? There is something for everyone at Ottsworld and that is the problem, in our opinion. That’s not to say we don’t highly recommend it, though.
