Woman 'finds herself' in South-east Asia with a little help from Photoshop to satirise Facebook brag

I'm really amused by this.

The dead giveaway for me would be be the drip feed of images and updates. When I'm actually on the road, I'm usually too busy doing stuff to post a damn thing, which is how I manage to take thousands of photos and videos and not post any of them.

From http://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/woman-finds-herself-in-southeast-asia-with-a-little-help-from-photoshop-to-satirise-facebook-bragging-9726396.html:
Dutch student Zilla van den Born put Photoshop to heroic use by inserting herself into images of stunning beaches and scenes of Buddhist monks and uploading them to Facebook to highlight how "we create an ideal world online which reality can no longer meet".

The 25-year-old appeared to her friends to be enjoying a five-week holiday in South-east Asia, when in fact she was sat at home in Amsterdam the entire time.
