Around Thailand

I could spend hours, and I did, walking around the city of Bangkok. To me, it’s not the rich culture, although it is amazing, it’s the people of Thailand that is so wonderful. The people, so warm, so inviting, and so willing to help wherever you go. I will never forget.

This shot was taken last Summer in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Eastern California. When it’s hot out it a great place to relax and soak in the rays. This is one of the many Rivers and streams along Highway 88, heading out of the Central Valley and near the summit of the Sierra’s. This spot is near Silver Lake and about 3 to 4 hours West of San Francisco.

Looking forward to this Summer!

Adventures in Thailand

Adventures of riding an elephant

Adventures of riding an elephant

Our local elephant driver had a great sense of humor as we made our way down through the jungle and down the river. These wonderful creatures are surprisingly agile who seem to climb with little problem.

After riding through the jungle and down the river on an elephant, we made our way up the Doi Suthep mountain to the Wat Phrathat Buddhist temple, and were greeted with such warmth by the praticing monks who we had the pleasure of joining in prayers and offerings. It is an experience I will never forget 🙂

Love in Thailand

Since arriving in Thailand a few days ago, I’ve fallen hopelessly in love with the culture and its wonderful people. I do love my home back in America, but I now know more than ever how much love can be found if we allow it. Accepting love is not as easy as it sounds and one that until recently I did not understand. This trip has helped me understand. It been a growing process, particularly these past few years, and I am much more prepared I feel to give and receive love.

My travels have just begun once again, and I look forward with open arms to the experiences and especially the people.

The adventure begins again 🙂

I’m beginning to understand why I became the person I am. It was out of necessity of my situation and out of the love I have for my two Sons. I now understand that at a higher level and as I travel the world i see it more of a universal feeling. THe Thai people to me are such a warm and wonderful people who seem to me to have figured out the true meaning of a happy existence. I know there is struggle here as in any other culture, but to me they seem to be handling these struggles much better than the Western world. For now I will just enjoy the people and give my friendship and warmth. I do have a deep desire to help not only the ones I love, but all the people who grace me with their presence throughout the day. Even in a very small way like bringing a smile. It’s wonderful to see the smile upon the faces that surround us. Something very human about this experience
