I’m a little behind on the travel theme this week, but the actual reason is not that I was really busy (which I was), but that I just couldn’t find the right photo for the theme! But I have finally found two.
The first is the White Temple, Wat Rong Khun, in northern Thailand. Chaloemchai Khositphiphat, the Thai artist for the temple, chose to make it in white as opposed to gold, which is the colour used in most other temples in Asia. He said that he believes that gold is only suitable for people who lust for evil deeds. It is also referred to as a ‘Painting in the Sky’, because the temple looks like a painting from a distance. Its beauty, its whiteness, and its serenity all make this place extremely ethereal.

My second photo is not as glamorous – its taken at Malshej Ghats in Mumbai. It was a rainy day; we could barely see a few miles away from us, which makes this photo quite ‘mist-ical’.
