Travel Destination :: Grand Palace in Bangkok
The Grand Palace in Bangkok was my first true “taste” of Southeast Asian culture and architecture. My camera went into overtime, though my curious mind sped even faster. Quickly, I was enchanted with a culture truly foreign to my own, and full of questions that had to be answered.
The opulence of the Grand Palace mesmerised me as there was so much to take in, not just from a historical standpoint, but also what was taking place in real-time as there is an active Buddhist Temple on the palace grounds.
This was my introduction to Buddhism so my eyes and mind were overloaded. The door swung open and I craved learning more about this Eastern way of thinking. Curious minds explore. My mind travels often whether I am in a foreign country, or not. If you, too, wonder and are a wanderer, I highly suggest Bangkok be added to your travel destination list. Travel adventures are not always physically climbing to new heights but also testing what you know and who you are.
