Day 82 – 3.23.19 Bangkok, Thailand 2013 One of the great adventures in travel is noticing the unexpected. Likewise, a great satisfaction in photography is paying attention to the unpredictable. We had just climbed the very steep steps of the Buddhist Temple, Wat Arun, known as the Temple of Dawn. The entire structure, as well as the view from the top, offered many photographic opportunities. The tower is visually stunning with its multitude of tile and multi colored porcelain fragments, which had been previously used as ballast by boats coming from China. It was only when I looked down and saw this Buddhist monk with his cell phone that I knew I had a unique image. Susan Sontag, American writer and filmmaker, wrote about photography and said, “attention is vitality. It connects you with others. “ After I took his photo, he smiled (maybe he was taking a picture of me) and we both waved to one another. It was a precious moment. Wishing you the gifts from paying attention. . . . . . #adventureseeker #explore #wonderfulplaces  #lovetotravel #roamtheplanet #travelmore #travel #instatravel #pilgrimage #travelphotography  #journeythisday #atlasobscura #afarmedia #lonleyplanet #traveldeeper #theglobewanderer #passionpassport #dametraveler #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #travelgram #femmetravel #damestravel #traveljournal #travelnow #exploretheworld #thailandtravel #bangkok #spirituality #buddhism

Smoking the cheroot is a popular pastime for older Burmese women, especially as you go further north in the country. Being able to capture the enjoyment on this ladies face as she puffs away was magical. #culture #anthropology #travel #traveller #travelling #burma #buddhism #myanmar #bagan #asia #instatravel #travelogue #viagens #familytravel #lonleyplanet #tourism #roughguides #traveling #flashpackers #luxurytravel #virtuoso at Bagan Ancient Area - ပုဂံ ေရွးေဟာင္း ယဥ္ေက်းမႈ နယ္ေျမ

Mexico gran final ¡Mexico City! Visting the house of Frida Kahlo made goosebumps for several hours. What a outstanding person. How she dealt with the burden of her accident and her wounds... Viva la vida, viva la Frida. So much greenery in the streets. And even more dogs. Old and new so close. Artsy places and monuments full of history. Thank you Mexico for all the beauty, the wonderful people, for showing me my colours again and last but not least the delights you gave us. Hasta luego mis compañeros. ¡ #mexico #mexicotravellers #mexicoCity #cdmx #fridakahlo #vivalavida #vivalafrida #hastaluego #andrearausda #lonleyplanet #wanderlust #travels #light #glimpses at Mexico City, Mexico

#Pukka #beach is very different to The #WhiteBeach, it’s a lot less busy, grainy sand and wavy waters. Really nice to day trip, grab some lunch and do a bit of shopping. The ride there cost us 150pesos for 3 of us each way and was great to see the island: it was refreshing to get away from the tourist trap and see the island and it’s locals. Their staple buy is a toad bag 😂. I had some really great stuffed squid and coconut and ginger prawns - a m a z i n g #food #local #travel #explore #sta #lonleyplanet

Feed us! 🐑 It was so windy when I took this picture I couldn’t stand up straight! The sheep then decided to follow me across the croft I was walking through as it was to windy to walk along the coast where the cliffs were. . . . . . . . . . . . #isleoflewis #scotland #explore_scotland_ #wildgeography #scotlandhighlands #scotlandsbeauty #scotlandscenery #countryside #travelscotland #outerhebrides #crofting #scotlandexplore #thisisscotland #unlimitedscotland #visitouterhebrides #traveling_scotland #beautiful #scotshots #photooftheday #lonleyplanet #canonphotography #ukshots #countrylife #croft #canonlens #sheep #windy #beautifuldestinations #destination_wild #sheepworld at Ness, Lewis

Young novice monks on their morning alms collection in Bagan. This is one of my favorite traditional rituals in Myanmar. When I lived here I used to watch this again and again. One of the joys of travel is seeing countries and culture so different to your own. #culture #anthropology #travel #traveller #travelling #burma #buddhism #myanmar #bagan #asia #instatravel #travelogue #viagens #familytravel #lonleyplanet #tourism #roughguides #traveling #flashpackers #luxurytravel #virtuoso at Bagan

Day 81 – 3.22.19 Bangkok, Thailand, 2013 D.H Lawrence, English writer and poet, believed that “a book can be valuable, valuable like a jewel, or a lovely picture, into which you can look deeper and deeper and get a more profound experience every time.” Inside this visually stunning building is such a book. The Phra Mondop is part of the Grand Palace Complex in Bangkok and is a copy of the building built over the Buddha’s Footprint in the Saraburi province of Thailand. These walls are covered in green mirrored tiles inlaid with gold medallions depicting Buddha. The gold guardian angels watch over the entrance, where no visitors are ever allowed. For the Thai people, inside is the real treasure of great value to their culture and way of life. They built this exatrordinary mondop to protect a 1788 palm-leaf edition of the sacred Pali Canon. The canon is a body of scripture in Theravada Buddhism first recorded from the oral tradition in 29BCE. The visible structure is to protect, guard and care for what is most valued, namely, the recorded words of Buddha. Wishing you a good book to value. . . . . . #adventureseeker #explore #wonderfulplaces  #lovetotravel #roamtheplanet #travelmore #travel #instatravel #pilgrimage #travelphotography  #journeythisday #afarmedia #lonleyplanet #Fodorsonthego #traveldeeper #theglobewanderer #passionpassport #dametraveler #femmetravel #damestravel # girlsabroad #girlsthatwander #girlswhotravel #sheisnotlost #ladiesgoneglobal #traveljournal #travelnow #exploretheworld #thailandtravel #bangkok

The southern half of Batanes, Philippines is an absolute dream, but the people are what make these islands so special. Someone walked past Jo and I petting this puppy and said, “Even the dogs are friendly!” I’ve never been to a place that has more sense of community and an equal respect for their land. #beagoodhuman #breathtakingbatanes #itsmorefuninphilippines
