Just poring through my travel archive and finding some special moments I forgot to share back when these actually happened!
Thailand: I met a fisherman at a corner shop, who started flagging me down when I passed in the afternoon, suggesting I stop walking and take a break from the searing sun, sit down with him and his buddies. I’m not sure what the other men thought of this, as no one spoke English, nor uttered much at all, but I was always happy to escape from the piercing sun, hang out in silence, nap the day away.
I end up in quite random situations when I travel, no doubt due to wandering around by myself, staring about cluelessly, looking probably sadder than the assured self I think I am.
Here, I merely turned to face a group of ladies celebrating on a patio, who then beckoned me over, prepared an extra plate, and demanded I join in and share their food. When they saw my camera, I was dragged upstairs to this room... to meet the bride.
I AM THE MOST UNINTENTIONAL WEDDING CRASHER EVER.
