I wondered into this absolutely stunning Buddhist temple in Siem Reap. Every square inch from the ceiling to the floor was hand painted like the Sistine chapel. It was just me and this young monk learning his early morning prayers on his iPhone. I sat there quietly in the corner and listened to him while absorbing the surroundings. I then asked if he would let me take some photos, which he did, and we both continued down our very different life paths.
A Glance inside the Tsukiji Fish Market in Japan.
The Famous Tuna Auction in Japan normally happens at 5:00 in the morning, you have to be there at least two (2) hours earlier to be able to witness the auction, however, even if you are there 3 hours earlier, it is not guaranteed if you can get inside because at least 120 visitors are only allowed. Unfortunately, we missed the Tuna Auction, but we were able to get a glance inside the Biggest Fish Market in the World at large.

Spring is the best time of year to travel to Amsterdam! Tulips are in full bloom 🌷. The spectacular coloured fields and gardens, full of millions tulips, and many other colorful flowers, are located about 30 minutes outside the city center.
Because even when it's cloudy, the sun is still shining up there somewhere.
When I was younger I always wanted to work as cabin crew. Not because of the travel - but because I knew that I'd always get to see sun and blue sky. Growing up in the UK that would feel like a real novelty!
It's always further than it looks. It's always taller than it looks. And it's always harder than it looks. But the view at the top makes all the sweat and near vom stops worth it 😍 🍃 #passagepeak#viewfromthetop#paradise#laugh @giulia_margiotta_
THAT ONE TIME YOU WANTED IT TO RAIN - We're a day away from dropping our little car off before we take a break and then pick up the next one.... it's not looking too pretty 😂 we've taken quite a few chalky back roads and are starting to feel ashamed to hand it back in, especially in it's current state. No, it did not rain this day like we hoped it would, no natural car wash for us. Side note - Castles everywhere!!! Big, small, run down, lush condition. They're amaze.
"After you, please" is always the polite form of etiquette, especially in busy, crowded places 😉
It seemed a little surreal standing here at the top of these broad steps leading onto a deserted beach, on this intensely bright, dazzling, sun-bleached morning 😎 Not a soul in sight. It reminded me of the wonderful feeling of being in a newly decorated and carpeted room with all the furniture and possessions removed (except, perhaps for a bean bag, or Ikea Poäng leather chair). I can only assume - from the relative grandeur of these steps - there are times when this shingle beach is absolutely heaving with sweaty flesh! Bustling Brighton Pier (not that you'd know it) can be seen at the top right of the photograph.
The perfectly named Bridal Veil Falls was another we stopped at after a pelting of torrential rain along the Panorama Route.
The skies were grey, we squelched thick mud between our toes and got completely soaked a number of times. Chasing waterfalls turned out to be a great idea.
