Given Thailand is 95 percent Buddhist, there are of course hundreds of Bangkok temples — known in Thai as “wats.”
Some are small, located far down tiny sois and well out of the way of tourist traffic. Others are part of massive complexes filled with halls, schools and revered statues, earning them a place in all the Bangkok guidebooks.
We visited the famous Wat Pho and Wat Traimit.
Wat Pho, or the Temple of the Reclining Buddha, is the oldest and largest Buddhist temple in Bangkok. It is home to more Buddha images than any other Bangkok temple and it shelters the largest Buddha in Thailand.
Great shots! :)

I’ve been home for about 2 months now, and I’m starting to really get back into serious aerial arts training and classes at Clubmynx here in Saskatoon. I just wrote a blog post for them about getting back into the swing of things without injuring myself and balancing my expectations, reality, and enthusiasm in coming back.
Check out my post here all about what I think I did that helped me come back to my fitness regime safely!
Looks like fun! :)
So you may have figured out that I enjoy being upside down. Handstands, cartwheels, headstands, and hanging of of various trees and other grab-able objects is a great pass time of mine! Looking back through my photos I loved these few from Pai, Thailand.
Great shots! :)

Since leaving Phuket, we’ve traveled to Chiang Mai, Pai, and are now waiting in Bangkok to catch a train to Koh Samui.
Braydon’s sister, Ali, has joined us for the next few weeks around Asia as well, which has been a blast so far!
Here’s a quick view of the last week and a bit in photos.
Great shots, love the format! :)

Caught a water ferry
on the Chao Phraya
languid brown river
hemmed by something
mad and beautiful
of weathered wood shacks
and fading stone facades
the old custom houses
tangles of stained concrete
all of it feeding off this
jumping off jetty’s
their slick backs to the sun
shining like glass
and we speared up the river
past all that time
all those people
all those Buddhas
all those past
and future lives
stirred into being
along the Chao Phraya
Great shot, and cool words! :)

Time stood still for me out there with no internet or phone signal I was forced into presence- such a present to become more in tune with the sounds of nature from gibbons to hornbills and spending hours swimming in the deep fresh water and attempting some balancing postures or floating on a massive log in the middle of the lake.
Every afternoon involved several hours of intensive ashtanga practise as well as pranayama breathing techniques and satsang- open dialogue about anything and everything with Danny.
It was a massive learning curve and I immediately started to feel physically stronger, which I put down to engaging the mulabandha- contracting the entire core muscles whilst practising yoga and also the pranayama exercises of holding breath and contracting core muscles at the same time muscles. I’ve always loved the truth in the concept that building physical strength also increases mental strength and the same goes with both physical and mental flexibility- changes that take place on a yoga mat affect the mind, body and spirit.
Jimbo a superyogi from Nashville and my yogi sister hut neighbour Bettina Heinze from Germany- here they are doing some acro yoga.
Love is…. the most wonderful fuel for creativity and connection as well as being the most universally understood, appreciated and pure feeling…. and well… it’s just everything really isn’t it? Loving the self, loving others, loving life.

Sawadee Kap & Chào, friends! We just wanted to post a quick update letting you guys know that we’re not missing :) We’ve been traveling throughout Southeast Asia and it’s been a blast! So far, we’ve been to Bangkok & Pattaya in Thailand and Bac Lieu Province in Vietnam. We’re currently in Ho Chi Minh City and it’s our last night here. Tomorrow, we’re headed to Hong Kong! Our last leg of our trip.
Lovely shot! :)
