My experiences living in Cape Town and travelling in Africa

Cambodia & Thailand, the insta-essay

If you don’t follow me on Twitter and, more recently, Instagram then you may not have been aware that I spent the better part of November travelling in  Southeast Asia. A friend of mine planned the itinerary to the very last detail which meant all I had to do was get on the plane and what an adventure it was. Since I’ve been back, things have been a little hectic catching up with work and other boring things so I am still working through all the photographs. In the meantime here are some of the Instagram shots to give you an idea of the trip. To see the description for each photo click on the Instagram logo in the top right hand corner of each image.
