Garden state

One of my all time favourite movies and best soundtrack ever. So when Scrapping the Music came up with one of the tunes for this weeks inspiration, I leapt on in. AND I came up with two(!!!) Lo's both from our holiday in Cambodia. I have tried but incompetently failed to load the song on my blog (no idea..) so to hear the song pop over to Scrapping The Music or go here. Just do it. Now. Please.

This one is from a trip we did onto the Tonle Sap at low season. The smell and poverty will linger for a while but so important for the kids to see how the third world is. And to know that it is ok to jump on in to theses experiences.

The next photo is from the ruins near Angkor Wat, where they filmed Tomb Raider. Wonderful atmosphere, would love to see it in the wet season. These great big strangler trees are breaking the walls of the temples and will eventually be removed. Glad we got to see them though.

Have a great day xx
