One of the biggest challenges I faced while volunteering in a Cambodian hospital was being separated from my boyfriend, Andy. After more than four weeks apart and a long day of serving at the Children's Hospital, there was a knock on my guesthouse door -- I opened it, and to my complete astonishment there was Andy, having flown halfway around the world to escort me home (or so he claimed). We had a casual dinner and grabbed a tuk-tuk (a moped-driven cart) and headed back to the guesthouse. Then and there, in the back of a tuk-tuk on the bustling streets of Siem Reap, Andy showed me the real reason he had come, handing me the most beautiful diamond ring I'd ever seen. The answer was easy: I said 'YES!'
