I just adore this photo.
I remember this day like it was yesterday. I woke up early one morning and decided that I needed a dose of adventure. I hopped on my motorbike and took off up Doi Suthep, a mountain towering over the city of Chiang Mai. The winding roads led me past roaring waterfalls, fragrant food stands, and breathtaking views of the city below, but the highlight of that day was when I finally reached the summit.
Perched on top of the mountain stood the most beautiful temple I had ever seen. The original founding of this ancient temple remains a legend and is shrouded in mystery. Many versions of its beginnings exist but my favorite is the white elephant legend.
After climbing the daunting 309 steps to reach the grounds of the temple, I was awestruck by the magnificent golden pagodas.
Standing in the shadows of the pagodas I saw this little girl from one of the local hill tribes. She was there with her family who was bringing offerings to Buddha. Her eyes were fixated on me as if I were some extraterrestrial being, but she was curious. I had the most beautiful flowers in my hand that I planned on leaving as an offering but instead I walked to her and gave my offering to her. Her eyes lit up with excitement and at that point, my day had been made.
Who knows what these flowers may have meant to her, Who knows the struggles this little girl and her family may have been facing, and who knows why they were there at the temple that day. One thing I know for sure is that whatever higher power is out there, he, she, or it brought me to that little girl for a reason. Regardless of our differences we are all still human and we can all learn from one another’s stories. #travel#travelgram#travelphotography#gaytravels#gaytraveler#gaytravelblog#gaytravelblogger#travelblogger#travelblog#instago#travelwriter#travelpic#travelgram#passportready#instapassport#writetotravel#instatravel#adventurethatislife#thailand#chiangmai#chiangmaithailand#tourist#gaytourist#gaytourism#wanderlust#wanderer#seetheworld#jetsetjeremiah
Exarcheia is the partisan neighborhood of Athens. Locals say you need a passport to enter it😀 Full of cafes, revolution and small shops, this area definitely worths a visit!
