After an amazing trip down the Kollom backwaters I wanted to share a few images of the trip. The backwaters are large rivers and lakes that connect up with smaller creeks and inlets, a network that unites communities and industry alike. Small villages that make their living from fishing, dredging sand for building and numerous other cottage industries that go to make up wonderful colourful settlements. Munroe island is set in the backwaters and has a unbelievable population of 25,000 thousand living on a 10 kilometre island. The strong sense of community that one finds here is so fantastic, people connecting and working together in a way that shows a true passion for life. Meeting people that just want to share their lives and stories with you, introducing you to friends and family in such a selfless way, pictures alone cannot convey such heartfelt connections.
