ABOUT MONEY TICKETS PASSPORT
Moneyticketspassport.com is a blog set up by Fabien David with over 3000 travel photos from around South East Asia and beyond. I quit my day job at TripAdvisor in London at the end of December and got a one-way ticket to Hong Kong. I ended up backpacking for over 4 months around some awesome countries:
Why backpacking in South East Asia?
After 5 years living in the UK, I was craving vitamin D and in January I worked out that I would need to travel pretty far to fast forward the seasons. With the added bonus of the cheap & cheerful food and accommodation and a guaranteed culture shock, South East Asia was a no-brainer. I found warmth, delicious street food and buckets of energy & creativity.
Colourful street photos & asian food
Escaping the British winter weather also meant I was hungry to place bright colorful things in front of the camera lens so I was always on the lookout for mood-lifting shots!
My love of everything edible meant that I had to try as many local dishes as physically possible and Moneyticketspassport includes various attempts at food photography.
Why is the site in French and English?
I made sure to translate as much content as possible to cater for both family and friends, it’s good for SEO too 🙂
Why are all the pictures taken with an iPhone 4?
I went shopping in Hong Kong hoping to find an SLR camera bargain but it proved harder that I thought. Since I was travelling on a shoestring and I knew I had to be careful to make my small savings last as long as possible, I just decided to stick with what I already had! Plus, it turns out the iPhone takes pretty decent pictures with the HDR mode and it fits nicely in a pocket. A pretty good selling point when I had to pack the bare minimum in my backpack 😉
