Scott Herder is travelling through Southeast Asia on a eight-month backpacking trip. A couple of months ago, he lost his iPod on one of his many stops in Laos. He didn’t think much of the lost device until he began to see photos he had not taken on his iPhone. It turned out that anytime he was connected to the internet more and more photographs were popping up. His iPod was still synced to his iCloud account so he was seeing life through the eyes of a young monk who loves to snap pics of his daily life. Or as Herder likes to refer him as “the monk that lives in my phone.” Herder loves to see what his monk has been up when his photos begin to upload. He feels a connection with the man who he hopes to one day meet.

This is how we #relax in #laos and beat the #summer heat. Cold #beer and #hammock time. #boboandchichi #nongkhiaw #northernlaos #jobatheavenonearth @hillsidebeachclub #laotourism #travel #travelgram #backpacker A photo posted by Scott & Megan (@boboandchichi) on May 29, 2015 at 4:47pm PDT
