Our Favourite Travel Pictures: A 100th Post Special!

This is our 100th post! To mark the occasion, we thought we’d share a few of our favourite travel pictures from the 195daysofsummer tour. Some of them you will have seen, some you won’t but either way we hope you will enjoy them all…….

We flipping love a sunset, and this was one of our absolute faves — from 4000 islands (Si Phan Don) in Laos.

I love this picture so much….is that massively vain to say? Well I guess it is, but I don’t care! We took it after enjoying the perks of ladies night (ahem free prosecco all night anyone?!) at Maya in Sukhumvit, Bangkok. Not your typical travel picture.

I can’t describe how much we loved Koh Tao…it’s amazing. From the crystal clear waters and soft white sand to the amazing array of fish you can spy on when you go for a dip in the sea — it has it all. It’s touristy for sure, but somehow feels like a hidden gem…..dreamy.

Cambodia was a real surprise for both of us and there wasn’t a single place we didn’t love. Even though it was heartbreakingly (not a word) sad, we really loved learning about Cambodia’s dark history. I snapped this from the balcony at the former Tuol Sleng prison (S21) in Phnom Penh.

We can never get enough of Cambodia or sunsets! This one is from Otres beach in Sihanoukville (OMG go, you MUST go there).

Oh India, how we love thee…….there are genuinely too many favourites from this country but we thought we would pick one that is a bit less cliched (i.e. the Taj Mahal) so here you go, enjoy a) me getting blessed by Lakshmi in Hampi b) us after Holi festival, Varanasi and c) This amazing Holy Sadhu who performed an impromptu dance to the tune of drums beating the sun down in Pushkar. It was one of the most surreal moments!

    Wow, I just found your blog from your post on Her Packing List! It was actually really informative for me as I’m planning a trip to Nepal next summer. When you were in Cambodia, did you go to Angkor Wat?

      Hi Meg, so pleased you liked the post (and my epic packing fails)! We did indeed go to Angkor Wat, and we’ve written some posts on it — we did it in one day which I think is the best way to do it. Let me know if you want any info on Cambodia (you will love it!). L
