New York-based photographer Brian Battjer, Jr. decided to go to Thailand on a whim back in 2005, and just recently he’s got around to posting the photos from the trip on his website, ikeepadiary.com. I know, that doesn’t sound particularly exciting — who wants to see some random photos of a stranger’s trip to Thailand? — but trust me, if this doesn’t get your travel juices flowing, nothing will. The photos in this 7-part series aren’t particularly mind-blowing, but where Brian really shines is his sense of what to capture to make a compelling and hilarious narrative.
By the time I reached the end of his journey, I was ready to book my ticket to Bangkok.
