We're big fans of Instagram -- a photo sharing app for Android and iPhone smart phones. We use it to share photos with our friends and family to help them enjoy the travelling as much as we do.
Now we'll be sharing with you too.
We hope we make your feet itch like crazy!
What is Travelfish lens?
When a Travelfish author wants a photo to appear on the site, they just snap it with Instagram, tag it with #tf and it automagically appears on Travelfish lens.
Co-founder of Travelfish.org, Indonesia-based Stuart McDonald posts under the @Travelfishery name. A partially reformed beach bum you'll find a steady stream of beach fodder, surf shots and plenty of images showcasing the stunning beauty of the Indonesian archipelago. Stuart travels regularly across Southeast Asia so you can also expect a range of images from across the region on his personal feed -- including what he eats. Yes, Stuart is one of those dreadful people who is forever snapping pics of their food.
Co-founder of Travelfish.org, Samantha Brown calls Indonesia home and it is from there she posts under the @sagabrown name. With a highly developed interest in sampling food and drink, her stream will get your stomach rumbling almost as much as your feet itching. Think lattes through to babi guling and everything in between. With a very Indonesia-focused feed, this is an ideal stream to populate your culinary tour of the archipelago.
Co-founder of UK adventure tour company All Points East, we first met Mark in the late nineties on a southern Thai island and we've been mates ever since. He posts under @markchiangmai and, while based in Chiang Mai in northern Thailand, Mark more or less divides his time between there, Cambodia and Burma. This means you'll get a rich mix-up of images from across mainland Southeast Asia. With a specific interest in the region's history, expect lots of temples, evocative landscapes and the occasional late night beer.
Australian traveller Adam Poskitt first hit Travelfish's radar during a holiday in Bali. He's now based in Bandung, Java and is our most experienced Indonesia researcher. After a long stint covering Bali and Java, he embarked on a top to tail exploration of Laos covering the entire country for Travelfish. A budget traveller at heart, Adam is our most food focused (well obsessed) writer, and is well known for his firm and unyielding view regarding what makes a good coffee.
