Welcome to a blog about experiences, thoughts, and adventures to the other side of the world!
How do you prepare for a trip to the other side of the world? Carefully? Excitedly? Eagerly? Deliberately? My guess, based on some experience is that you prepare with proper clothing, essential items, and then let the rest happen as it will. As Rumi said, “Walk in the busy street and BE the noise.”
Our travels take us to Thailand and Bhutan. This blog will document and elaborate on the trip, include photos, videos, and a podcast or two. In addition, we will include posts from all the travelers and check in with their experiences and thoughts about what finds us.
The brief overview of the trip includes days in Bangkok including visits to the Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha. A walk through the old city and a contest related to street food. Our goal in Bangkok is to experience the noise. From Bangkok we travel to Bhutan, wandering the streets of Paro and Thimphu, visiting temples and shrines, looking for as many images of Padmasambhava as we can, and meeting folks and sharing ideas.
