Traveller’s tale: I was surprised at the amount of things the boat held including two LPG cylinders. This was a small floating market in a village on the way to one of the larger, more touristy floating markets outside Bangkok. The taxi driver stopped on a whim to show us the place.

Traveller’s Tale: I think the artist is Leo Lunatic. There’s no signature visible on this photograph but Leo Lunatic has been credited with creating our Panda friend across Istanbul. Street Art in Istanbul is all the rage. It’s everywhere across the city. Take a look for yourself here. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting the city, take a walk around.

Traveller’s Tale: The fishmonger caught my attention as he was almost running down the road, while balancing the baskets on his shoulders. I had to sprint after him to take this picture but he took no notice of me. I didn’t even get a chance to ask him what species of fishes he was selling.
