I have admittedly been stung by the “travel bug”. Any chance I get I travel. Whether its near or far, I love the feeling of being somewhere new and especially exotic. I wanted to showcase some of the amazing and interesting architecture I was able to see when I was in Thailand in 2006. There, some people lived very lavishly and some very, very simply. My favorite picture is, above, of an old man sitting cross-legged on his front porch. He seemed so content despite his very simple home and way of life.
Looking back at these pictures, it is a good reminder that, while I LOVE design and beautiful homes, it is important to soak in your surroundings because if you do not “look” you may miss the beauty that is around you! I found more enjoyment in experiencing the simple way of life in Thailand than I can ever begin to explain.
The colors, textures, shapes, tastes, sights and smells are out of this world. I will be lucky to have the chance to go back some day. Enjoy this little piece of my travels as I have loved every second of the adventures I have taken over the years!
