Likes to travel. Takes Photos.

I spent my day today curled up in bed planning a Asian adventure... Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, we are going to do it all... well as much as we can in a month, long treks into the mountains in Sapa, have breakfast with the orangutans at the Singapore zoo, Sail the Mekong Delta from Saigon to Phnom Penh and relax on a beach in Ko Samui....

I booked flights, accommodation, even airport transfers when it hit me, shit, I have to start stock piling my Polaroid film. Last time i went over seas I took 20 packs of Polaroid 600 film with me, that's 200 photos - you should of seen me, bolting from one side of Zurich airport to the other trying to make a connecting flight to Cairo with a pack that already weighed a tonne, it was borderline ridiculous. But no way in hell was I going on the adventure of a life time with out my Polaroid camera... let alone enough film to get me through 2 to 3 months!

This time I think I might just have to tone it down a bit and only pack 10 cartridges... which seems reasonable I know, sensible too because let me tell you Polaroid film, in bulk, ain't light... now i just have to decided which camera to take, I had this dilemma before, and ended up packing six cameras I think... regardless of what camera I choose to take, I'm just excited to hit the road again... meet some new people, swim in foreign waters, live some fun moments and maybe, just maybe, be lucky enough to capture one or two of those moments on film, to get me through to the next time we hit the road to master the fine art of explorification! woo!


  1. My husband and I have been to Thailand several times. Where in Thailand are you going? We've been to Bangkok (of course), Chiang Mai and Koh Samui. The Pinnacle Bungalows is a great place to stay on Samui.

  2. Thanks for the tip Kara :) we were going to Ko Samui but just changed to phi phi, found some rad looking tree houses to stay in! doing the whole of vietnam and the north of cambodia too!
