Bayon

After a stunning sunrise, and some pancakes at the “Lady Gaga” food tent near the lake, we headed off to the nearby temple of Bayon.

Bayon and Ta Prohm were my two favorite temples of the whole trip.  Bayon, or ‘that one temple with all the faces’, really felt and looked unreal.  The fact that it’s a Buddhist temple amongst a lot of Hindu temples does make it stand out, but it really was more than that.


My Cambodian Christmas

I have so much that I want to share about my recent trip to Cambodia, that I really don’t know where to start.  I guess I could have started at the beginning, (I remember hearing that it’s a very good place to start) but talking about how I got super sick on the plane didn’t seem that exciting.  Instead, I decided to start with Christmas.

Nikko

Nikko is stunning!  I’m so glad I spent one of my days in Japan there.  I never would have considered it, and I might not even had known about it if it hadn’t been for my friend’s recommendation. After doing a search for images of Nikko, I was sold.

Nikko looked like the lush,green, and quiet zen forest full of UNESCO wonders I wanted to explore, and it totally was.

Even though Nikko can be seen as a day trip from Tokyo (the train ride took less than 2 hours), I went the night before so the whole day would be open to explore all the temples.
