Since I’ve been away from home I have been much better at appreciating the little things, pausing throughout the day to notice something new or stopping for a moment to realize how lucky I am to experience whatever beautiful, funny, confusing place I happen to be in.
Each Monday, I’ll post a quick blurb about something that has struck me in someway.
When I think of Chiang Dao, about an hour and a half outside of Chiang Mai, I picture stunning mountains, lush jungle, and lots of green. This is probably my only photo from a two-night getaway to Chiang Dao that doesn’t involve trees or plants…it was also probably one of my only moments – ever – while exploring a new place that I actually felt like I had found something.
We stumbled across an entry to a cave on the edge of some temple grounds. There was building going on and it looked off limits, but the local woman sweeping beckoned us to go in and look. A shrine, a nun and no one else around.
