Something inside me changes every time I travel. A new experience makes me appreciate life’s beauty and I feel so lucky given the chance to experience a new culture. The curiosity in me is satisfied when I learn about the history of the place and how the people coped up with the challenges thrown their way. We may come from different countries, different religions, different beliefs and cultures but we are all the same in a way – trying to find that one thing that makes our world a better place.
I am finally back after a long hiatus from my website. Sometimes, life takes you on a wild ride and we get overwhelmed with everything that’s happening. Each of us are unique individuals and we see things differently. Some may say the glass is half full or half empty. Something so ordinary can be amazing, we just need to appreciate the little things. It’s all about perspective.
We always do selfies when we travel. I’m not a narcissist or something. I do it to remember the place/s I’ve been to and to have a souvenir. Sometimes, I get lucky when someone will be there to take a picture of me when I travel. When you travel solo, you eventually learn the art of taking selfies be it a camera phone or a camera. This photo was taken at the Taj Mahal in India.
I was on the lovely island of Batanes when I saw this animal grazing at the edge of the slope. I was so amazed that he wasn’t scared at all and was just too happy to eat all the grass. The buffalo even tilted his head and was observing me as I was taking his picture. How cute is that?
Bridges are built to provide passage by connecting two islands or land masses separated by a body of water or a valley. It also provides aesthetic beauty to a landscape design like in the photograph above. This photo was taken in one of the temple complex that’s spread around Ayutthaya which is the ancient capital city of Siam or better known today as Thailand.
Delicate. Something that requires careful handling. It can also be marked by daintiness of color, lines, or proportions. A flower is something that comes to my mind when the word delicate is mentioned. The photo above shows a picture of a water lily growing in a pond. It shows how delicate and stunning it looks against the backdrop of leaves and water in the pond.
I was walking around a village in Laos when I saw this lady sitting outside her house. She was busy removing the leaves from the stalk. She was oblivious of people passing by. I passed by three times and she didn’t look up once. This scenario caught my eyes because of her concentration on such a mundane task and doing it outside instead of inside the house. This is one of the charms of Laos, the simplicity and laid back atmosphere of the village. And this is exactly the reason why travelers from all around the globe are drawn to this country.
