A travel blog entry by beckeyjw


... us with food that night as their kitchen was being used for the community, think a lot of soup is offered out for Vesak. They did however pick us up to bring us to the room, walked in and two large double beds with fluffy blankets (slightly cooler here) and fantastic views, with background music from the temple which is fairly noisy but can't complain as seems a lovely place, and believe that there is music/prayers dues to Vesak.

The sun was just starting to rise over the mountainside and the first rays of ...

No Sweet without the Sour

A travel blog entry by oupaoumatravels


... it was a day I'll never forget, but there have been bad days of equal magnitude; as if the equation is always trying to remain in equilibrium. I've been toiling with the concept that without emotional and physical low points, you cannot experience the polar opposite highs.
