Cambodia ~ lessons in life love and happiness

Life is a ticket to the greatest show on earth ~ Martin H. Fischer

The title to this post is also the working title of a little book I would like to create of my images and thoughts from our recent trip to Cambodia. 

We are back safe and sound from our two week adventure. Tired (even though it is silly to complain when you are lucky enough to travel, good grief I hate airplanes) and so taking it easy with loads of washing, resting and cuddles with the furkid today. Slowly looking at the over 2000 images I took and the 1000 images Mr took!!!

I have noticed that, as per usual, I was taking heaps of images over the first few days and then lost the crazy need to capture every single second by digital image and eventually just relax let myself enjoy the moments, be part of the moments, rather than simply viewing them through the lens...


As the working title suggests the trip was an experience, more than an adventure, it was a lesson. Well many lessons, hopefully ones we can take into the rest of our lives in a positive way.


Life is a game, Play it; Life is a challenge, Meet it; Life is an opportunity, Capture it. ~ Anonymous

 The above image of Mr (taken after over 24 hours of little sleep and our first little taste of the streets of Siem Reap) is such a symbol to me of our trip ~  Our eyes are wide open now.


I will post a few more little series on this trip.  Sooo many images and thoughts to share, hope all is well will pop onto my feed and see what I have missed xox

Hello! Welcome home :) I'm looking forwards to seeing the rest of your pictures (well, maybe not all 2000 of them heh).

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such kind words. Some days I have the right attitude, others I'm just a bit of a mess, but I will get there. It helps to be able to read such lovely comments, so thank you x

sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Sometimes you do need to "step away from the lense" don't you to see what is around you.

Hi, I look forward to seeing your book and reading your insights. There is nothing like travel for enlightenment, is there? How special that you shared it with your Mr. and can experience the increased awareness and understanding together. xo – g

Hello,
I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Ricevere con Stile'. Your photos are so pretty, colorful, and full of life!! The picture of the elephant is wonderful. Me and my daughters love photography, and all things beautiful too. We just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would really enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your creative photos. Your blog is so pretty and peaceful, and I left here with a smile. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
