When I watched for the first time Tomb Raider (I think it was in 2001-2002), I was mesmerized by the powerful scenes and by the temples that were shown in the movie–they look like out of this world!😳🙌🏼
I never thought I would have the opportunity to see these places with my own eyes 💙 As I mentioned in my other post, I went to Cambodia with my parents. We went to Ta Prohm on our second day, as we were really taking our time to enjoy and embrace the culture.
We took a private tour, air conditioned van and a tourist guide that would answer ALL my Dad’s questions–he had a lot!!
We walked about 5 minutes from the main door to the temple, and on the way, a group of dissable men (from the terrible years Cambodia had to endured) playing beautiful music that would give an enchanting vibe to the place. There was so many people walking into the temple, and I could sense and feel we were all so excited for being there.🎶✨
First thing you see: a giant, imposing, awe-inspiring tree coming out of the temple. “How?!”–I thought!.. Nature can do wonderful things.🙌🏼✨
With our tourist guide, Vanna, we toured around the temple. It is massive, and full of details, with hidden “miracles” all around! Like a small Buddha face that the trees’ branches have contoured around in order to show Buddha’s face–I thought again “How?!”
The temple was full of people, but I have found out that most people traveling around Asia are considered of others in order for everybody to have fun and take good pics! 📸 And here, there was no exception to that. We all took turns to get good pics and even one moment I got the chance to take a picture of the temple with no one around.📸❤
All my memories from Cambodia are wonderful, and I’m so happy that I enjoyed this place with my parents! My father couldn’t asked more questions, because there is too much to learn 📚. But, the biggest lesson from Cambodia is its people: their humble hearts.🇰🇭💙.
Can’t wait to go back!
