Everyone can appreciate a good travel photo, whether it’s a serene beach, a cheeky monkey (with an eye on your snacks!) or a stonking sunset over temple ruins. For us, seeing pictures of our customers travelling on their Rickshaw holidays makes us grin from ear to ear. We’ve flicked through our hefty photo albums and, after a lot of umming and ahhing, chose 12 top photos that we couldn’t resist sharing…
