Hanging Out To Dry

On The Line, Koh Panyee, Thailand

I couldn’t believe my luck when I came across this scene in the Thai village of Koh Panyee. I love the small glimpses you get into the daily life of locals when travelling around Thailand. It makes for a much more interesting and authentic experience. I’m surprised anything gets dry out on the line given the humidity!

Despite its precarious location the village has its own football team. Their story is an incredible tale of determination and achievement against the odds. Documented in this video, it’s well worth watching if you’re looking for a bit of inspiration or something to put a smile on your face. And who doesn’t want that?!

      Thanks Connie! It came as a bit of a surprise to be asked about the Weekly Photo Challenge, how could I say no?!

    How is it that washing in other countries is so much more photogenic than hanging out at home?
    And congratulations on being featured on the Weekly Photo Challenge – you must feel so good – deservedly so πŸ™‚

      Haha, that is a fantastic observation! It’s so true, the most mundane things can seem so very interesting when we’re travelling. I think that’s what makes it such good fun.

      Thanks Jude, I couldn’t believe it when I saw the email from WordPress in my inbox! It was so great to have that opportunity, I feel very lucky on that one. I am going to try and make the most of the short lived WordPress fame while it lasts! πŸ™‚

        Well you have a lot of followers already, but maybe some people will be more inclined to comment? I think comments are the next best thing in blogging to the actual posts, as it gives you a chance to interact with people. Even better when they give an opinion ;-D
