Travel Photo: Finding Your Travel Magic #8

Bangkok is not always easy to love. But when I look at this photo, I remember the thrill of watching Muay Thai at Lumpini Park, the fun of learning how to ask for my favorite Thai dessert “mango with sticky rice and coconut cream” in Thai, the colorful, soft swoosh of Thai silk scarves, the adrenaline rush of piling onto the packed express boats plying the mighty Chao Phraya river in the few seconds they perch alongside the docks, the indescribable wonderlands that are the temple complexes, filled with lush floral displays, massive Buddhas, colorful offerings, and the glint of gold, and the surprise of finding myself standing in the theatre to acknowledge the images of the Thai King which are shown at the start of every film.
