This is .... my favourite travel memory


Ooooh! I have way too many to pick just one, so here are a couple of random thoughts (and please excuse the cheesy 'holiday snap' poses):

One of the most profoundly moving experiences I've had was listening to a beautiful frog symphony as we sat in the dark at the edge of a lily pond, waiting for the sun to rise behind Angkor Wat (in Siem Reap, Cambodia). I can't remember many times when I've felt such peace, or my senses were heightened so intensely ...




Travelling with G is always an absolute joy. We spent the first week of our honeymoon in Thailand gently gliding up the river from Bangkok to Ayuthaya in an old teak rice boat (that usually catered for 12 people) - just us on the boat with two marvellous cooks, the captain and a guide. So dreamy!


We followed this with four weeks of island-hopping and total relaxation on pristine beaches.



On one of our trips to Thailand we met this little guy .... someone had scribbled on his face with a texta, but he seemed pretty cool with it!



Thanks to Hila for this week's theme, and of course to Angela at Three Buttons for hosting 'This is ...' every week!

What an amazing honeymoon, and a lovely treat to flat along in that boat, just the two of you. Great pics.

I did the sunrise at Angkor last year and it's just amazing! Sadly, I didn't get as great a shot of it as you did.

Your honeymoon sounds amazing.

Good luck in the giveaway! I'm drawing it tonight!
