Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. The teaching semester has reached the half way mark, and my thoughts are turning more and more to my winter travels.

Mabul Island Children

Mabul Island is located a short boat ride from the small town of Samporna on the coast of Borneo, Malaysia. Most people who stay on the island are divers or snorkelers. The huge drawing card is Sipidan Island. If you’re looking to live among the locals, while experiencing some of most awesome underwater life on the planet, this is it. Accommodation ranges from budget to luxury.

The children on Mabul island are amazing. They love having their photos taken, or just spending a bit of time with the foreigners. This is one of my favorite shots of many. This shot is currently being featured by the National Library of New Zealand “Services to Schools Publication”…. “Inspire Me”. How cool is that?
