    Chindana Pearl Farm, Raja Ampat, February 10, 2010

    (Music Recommendation: Colleen/Everyone Alive Wants Answers) We did leave the next morning. I woke up to the sounds of the engine starting and I rubbed sleep out of my eyes as we pulled out into the ocean. The wind had picked up again the night before and it had got quite cold sleeping on deck,

    Doum Island, West Papua, February 10, 2010

    (Music Recommendation: Lukid/Wake Up) When I woke up this morning we were still in dock and most of the crew had disappeared, apparently the generator was broken.

    Sorong, West Papua, February 7, 2010

    (Music Recommendation: Four Tet/Sing) I arrived in Indonesia about a week ago. Before I begin searching for the Bajau Laut, I have an assignment for the Guardian and Destinasian magazine at the far eastern end of Indonesia in Irian Jaya (West Papua).

    The Transiberian Railway

    These are a selection of images from my time couch surfing on and around the transiberian railway in the first few months of this year.
