Photo Friday: Chiang Mai, Thailand

Loy Krathong - Chiang Mai, Thailand

This stunning Photo Friday comes from the Yee Peng Festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand and was submitted by fan Casey Engels. We agree with her statement that it is a surreal pairing of the calm floating lanterns and celebratory fireworks.

In April 2011 Casey and Eli left their home in Boston with a one-way ticket to Iceland. “We took the leap, quitting our jobs in this less than desirable economy and committed to fully exploring the unknown as best we could.”

You can follow their adventures on their site Wonder Wander.
