เกาะลันตา | Koh Lanta

Just wanted to add a few snaps from the rest of the Koh Lanta weekend. I guess I travel quite a lot, but there are only a few other weekend trips that I would rank quite as awesome and memorable as this one…. ok… two, to be exact. Anyways… this was definitely among my three favorite island weekends, even though it was windy and cold the whole time. Lots of awesome people; a trip across the island on a motorcycle that was in the process of breaking down, to fetch a drugged up cat from the vet; roosters competing with the mosque to see who could wake the neighborhood up earlier, going to Drunken Sailors 3 times a day; and some of the best Thai food I’ve had in AGES.

Next up: A delicious set from Penang….

A Parisian woman lost in KL aka V - Hello Carli,
Wow, loads of amazing pics, as always !!!
Happy girl!! you’ve found dead fishes and cats ;-)

kellie - love love these, carlina! the guys working on the boats are my fave.

kellie - i just scrolled back through….i take that back, there is not just one favorite…too many to list.

Cheryl - Eeeek!!! All of the pictures are lovely… except for the one where I’m all grubby, greasy, and front and center!! <3

Anti Gravity Divers | Koh Lanta

I went on a quick trip up to Koh Lanta this weekend, where one of my oldest friends…. ummm… I mean… she’s not OLD… but I’ve known her longer than I’ve known almost anyone else, has been diving during her regular resort’s low season. I’ve spent quite a lot of time deliberately avoiding diving, and only partially because the thought of not breathing naturally occurring oxygen creeps me out, but mostly because I know I’d neeeed to take up underwater photography…. And that’s just crazy expensive.

Anyways, the Anti Gravity Divers team was totally amazing, and now I’m pretty much set on breaking my vow not to dive, just because of them. I didn’t dive this trip… just hung out, did some snorkeling and shot a few photos (above water!) of the team and their brand-spanking-new boat. Next time I go up there (and believe me, there’ll be a next time), I’m diving for sure.

Well that’s about two paragraphs more than I ever write on a blog, so a huge thanks to everyone at Anti Gravity Divers for a weekend I won’t be forgetting anytime soon, especially Anand, P’Pao, Sarah, Oscar the kitteh, and of course Tamara and Mat Yie. If you want to dive in Krabi, look them up! They’re based at Amantra Resort and Spa, Koh Lanta.

Patrick - And where are the pictures of Oscar the kitteh? Humm? What a lead-on – pique my interest with possibilities of scuba-diving kitteh, then give me nothing but great shots of a really fun time

Grr. We wantz moar kitteh!

Looks like you had a blast!

Carlina - @Patrick… aahahahaha… oscar the kitteh wasn’t on the boat. the poor little baby had a bit of a traumatizing visit to the vet. I promise he’ll make an appearance on the next post… you’ll just have to come back and see ;)

Magalie - Whoa, you are just mindblowingly amazing. I wasn’t expecting such great photos of a dive shop and a dive boat!

I hear your pain about diving and pictures, but trust me, when you start, you have too many other things to think about and focus on before getting to the point where you’d feel ready for it! That should spare you for some time :P

Lindsey - The last picture is my favorite… <3 Thailand and their islands :D

Piragi Afternoon

There’s nothing quite as perfect as spending the afternoon Christmas baking and drinking wine with a friend. Or that might be the case if I wasn’t cursed, and could actually bake! Once a year I like to try to beat the curse, and make Piragi, which is basically Latvia’s greatest contribution to the world. For the last few years, they’ve been turning out acceptable, but this year, the baking gods just wouldn’t have it :(

The yeast was totally dead. I didn’t even know yeast can die! it didn’t rise AT ALL! Now I’m totally ashamed that I’m going to be serving these rock hard buns for Christmas. But considering how hard they turned out, we sure did eat a lot of them after… so maybe they’re not THAT bad ;)

Lani Barbitta - Carli – these are great, as always. I really love how you tell stories through your photo compilations! Happy Holidays and an even Happier New Year!

Eva - Believe it or not, this is the first time i’m seeing those! ;-)
Great job, as always…can’t believe it is exactly a year already…!!! Love

Canada Part III | Vancouver

I know, I know… these are *so* last season. It’s ok… I don’t really believe in seasons. So this is finally the end of the Canada trip photos. My fave from this set – the early ’90s (or late ’80s?) station wagon, complete with wood paneling we were fortunate enough to find in Stanley Park. The Teteri used to roll in one of those babies back in the day. Hot stuff.

What’s up next? Maybe a few shots from a friend’s wedding in Jakarta I went to a couple weeks ago, or maybe I’ll pull out some stuff from the archives that I’ve been meaning to post in a full set.

Magalie - Just wonderful! You make my (ex) city look soooo good! :)

Janet - These Photos are great! Thanks for all the photos of Claire and I! They are wonderful!

Eric - Very nice series my favourite is the last one.

Canada part II | Tyax Resort

Tyax is the anti-Singapore. If there was an exact opposite of the city-state, it would most definitely be Tyax lodge. At one point we drove for 6 hours and only saw four other people… and three moose. Was a great weekend chilling in log cabins with the extended Pitt Meadows family, drinking wine, driving up the mountain to see what kind of trouble we could get into…. and drinking more wine.

By “log cabin” kind of mean “log mansion.” Even though it’s in the middle of nowhere, Tyax isn’t very rustic.

Carmen Augustine - Carli! This is so lovely! You really do have a talent. Thanks for capturing our time together and sharing it with us all.

Jaclyn MacKinnon - Hey, that was awesome! Looks like it hasn’t changed much up there.
Everyone’s just a bit older and there’s a lot more wine than there was when I used to go. Who put the suburban in the ditch?

Carlina - @Jaclyn…. the suburban was Sonja’s work ;)

Robert Morton - Wow those are really really beautiful photos, and not only are the photos perfect but you have captured so many of the exact moments of the AUGUSTINE TIAX TRIP. Really really well done!!!!!

Vee - Amazing photos, Carli! I’m a fan! :)

Cheryl - All of these photos are gorgeous! I especially love the one of Yvonne and I air kissing- sooo cute!!

Sonja - Love your website, can’t wait to see you in the summer!
