This Week in Photos

This post takes us through all but the last two days of a six-month trip that ends twelve hours from the time published at the bottom of this post. I’d really like to skip ahead those twelve hours and maybe twelve more; I hate saying goodbyes, especially one as difficult as this will be parting ways with Will.

Expect a flurry of backed-up posts after I’ve had some time on the weekend to sort through the themed sets I’ve been working on. For now, though, here’s a handful of snaps from our last week spent bumming around the rather dull Malaysian islands of Perhentian:

  • Hey, why are you considering the perhintian islands dull? they were one of our very favourite places during the trip. sooo beautiful and relaxing.

    Oh, and btw, i will email you soon. And Johanna and I will answer Will’s email together, and send it to both of you. We met today again after 1,5 months apart. I got to america last week, and she arrived late yesterday, and we now have 4 more weeks together. Yey!

    and as usual, Your pictures are absolutely amazing!
