I’ve spent the last 5days exploring & taking in everything that the ancient town of Luang Prabang has to offer. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s a beautiful place to relax & chill out🌿🎒🦋🌻🏯🧘🏽♀️🏞 .
Video shot on my Mavic Pro & edited with the DJI GO app. Let me know what y’all think! It was my first time editing on an app or my phone. Took me a while but I think I finally figured it out😉 .

Deer Cave - mit 2.160m die längste Höhlenpassage der Welt. Hier startet auch der Garden of Eden Valley Walk, der aus dieser mächtigen Höhle nach draußen führt. Siehst du den klitzekleinen Menschen am Rande des Flusses stehen? 😲
Fun Fact: von der Mitte der Höhle kann man an einer Felsformation das Profil von Abraham Lincoln erkennen 👤
How the heck was this almost two years ago already?? Halong Bay in the winter is chilly and mystical, but I need to plan a trip to return in the summer. What a gorgeous place! @stefergram on the 📸 Girl, let’s go back!
Getting her priorities straight on the drive today 🛵 If you're ever in northern Laos we would definitely recommend renting a scooter and driving up to Muang Sing to see lots of hill tribes and villages. Just don't drive as far as the Chinese border like we did 🙈
another shot of our visit to Bangkok’s Erawan Museum, this time from inside the belly of the amazing three-headed elephant 🐘 🐘 🐘
this particular floor of the museum — the 2nd one — represents the Earth, and on the domed roof’s stained glass you can see the world and the twelve zodiac signs 🌏
depicted on the four pillars supporting the top floor (Heaven) are important episodes from each of the four religions/philosophies represented at the museum: Theravada Buddhism, Hinduism, Mahayana Buddhism, and Christianity 🙏
Live like a local - wir übernachteten im Mulu Homestay an der Zufahrtsstraße zum Parkeingang.
Auf Bild 1 sieht man das zukünftige Guesthouse, das noch nicht fertig gestellt war. Unser Zimmer befand sich damals noch im Haus der Familie (Bild 2). Ein sehr sporadisch eingerichtetes Bretterhaus, kein Strom, Dusche mit Flusswasser - dafür aber unvergesslich und sooooo rural 🔦🚿😀 #mulunationalpark#homestay#livelikealocal#unforgettable
Tonight the initiate monks helped a fish farmer get all his feed down to the river. They’d been relaxing on his scaffolding when he rolled up and the insisted on lowering all the bags of feed for him. After they stood around chatting with him for a bit, then went on their way. These kids are more complex than their hijinks had me giving them credit for being. It’s neat to watch them. Initiated are under 20 years old, FYI.
From 49 sunsets down to only 16 left. There have been some phenomenal ones here on the Mekong. Time flies when you’re being boring and chasing an elusive career. Not much time left here. Phew. #travel#sunsetporn
Even when you're in the bigger towns or cities in Laos, mountain views are always just around the corner 🏞 Today we grabbed some push bikes and headed into the rural roads to pass by rice fields, waterfalls and temples. We were even invited to eat with a group of monks for lunch 🍜 Laos should definitely be on everyone's Asia itinerary!!
detail of a beautiful wall inside Wat Pho, home to a 46-meter-long reclining Buddha
this amazing temple is one of Bangkok’s oldest, even predating the city’s status as capital of Thailand
adding to that, Wat Pho is considered to be Thailand’s first public university and is still today the national headquarters and an important center for the teaching of Thai medicine and massaging methods (only more reasons for a visit)

Have always loved this quote from a long time ago.. for this year, we decided to incorporate it into a daily conscientious effort.
We love that Singapore is constantly finding new ways to reinvent itself, but sometimes, we find that looking at old things from a different perspective can give as an amazing point of view
