Every place we visit, I like to post photos that capture the everyday magic of a place.  For Indonesia, I combined this post to encompass all of Indonesia versus each place since our time was more compressed.  Enjoy!

Every place we visit, I take photos that capture the everyday magic of  life there.  Chiang Mai was our favorite place in Thailand because we got to blend in with locals a bit more than the other places we went, which were completely catered to Western tourists.  Enjoy!

Okay, and then I couldn’t resist, I have to post this because it’s just that good.  Good and awkward.  Mike caught this one afternoon–two dogs going at it while one is pinning a third dog down and a little boy wondering what’s going on.

Every place we visit, I capture photos that I think speak to the everyday magic of the place.

Everyday magic was a bit tougher in Ko Lanta, everywhere we went I would most likely be getting wet, so I wasn’t able to bring my nice camera along as often as I usually do.  Plus, we stayed mostly confined to our beach. =)
