It has been almost two years since we explored the highlights of Thailand. It is a mystical country with ancient history. Enormous Buddha statues can be found everywhere, mostly sitting, but some of the largest are reclining. Stupas dot the country and can be pointed and covered in gold, ornate and colorful, or dull and well weathered.
We instantly fell in love with Thailand. All of our senses got a daily workout. Everything was vibrant, alive, moving. But the movement was not frantic, instead it flowed with a rhythm all its own.
At the top of our admiration list were the people. Happy, smiling, friendly and always willing to go out of their way to accommodate our needs and make us feel both welcome and appreciated.
With all of our ongoing travels, I have gotten hopelessly behind in making my Shutterfly photobooks. Today I finally buckled down and started to sort through hundreds of pictures from our three weeks in SE Asia. As I clicked through each days worth, what always stopped me for a moment and brought a big smile were the beautiful faces of the children.
It seemed outright selfish not to share some of my favorites with you.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful for the many smiling faces that have greeted us on our journeys. But I am especially thankful when I can see joy in the children’s eyes.
We hope you will continue to join us on our future travels. And a warm welcome to any new readers.
