I probably look and sound like a nut if anyone else was actually around on the trails. I talk to myself a lot... but in a very amped up and stoked way because I escaped the city and didn’t think it would be this pretty. This has been my least active trip ever 😅 LA is a bust for me and I think my soul needs some oregon or sierra views come March. I’m dying to feel drained. Then Im locked down at work for awhile because I am not a baller. 💲🙅🏼♀️
On our way to 🏝Palm Island 🏝 for a week of fun, sun and then some. While girl trips are amazing, it’s always a little something special with one’s sweetie... who’s your go-to travel partner? Or do you like to travel solo.... pick up new friends along the way?
Today is a good day to accomplish the impossible 💋
Of all the original features of the Bayon Temple near Angkor Wat in in Siem Reap, Cambodia, it is the over 200 gigantic stone faces that probably stand out the most. These faces, dubbed the ‘Mona Lisa of South East Asia’ came in sets of four, each identical, and pointing to a cardinal direction. The location of the faces – on the 50 odd towers of the Bayon Temple, symbolizes the omnipresence of the person whose face is being depicted. According to some scholars, the statues depict the face of the Avalokitesvara, the bodhisattva of compassion. This is supported by the features of the face, in particular the closed eyes and mysterious smile, which represent the achievement of the state of Enlightenment. Others, however, have argued that the faces depicted Jayavarman himself, as they bear an uncanny resemblance to other images of the king. Unlike other temples in the region that are aligned facing to the east, this temple was aligned to the west. It faces sunset and the evening sun adds to its beauty in the evening.
