sometimes, all you need (even on a holiday) is the joy of doing nothing. i’ve often found myself getting so caught up in things that i forget to take a moment and breathe- just be in the moment and enjoy it. so i decided to do nothing but chill by the pool and read a book. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
it was so relaxing and even though i didn’t stick to my itinerary, i felt like i got a lot done โœ… in this beautiful journey of finding myself! loved living my own life in slow motion โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
have you ever experienced that? do you like to stick to itineraries (checklists or to do lists) or do you also think that taking a break and doing nothing will actually, strangely, help you more?

Cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ, you’ve managed to steal my heart!!
this is a pic from the unbelievably enchanting bayon temple. it represents the intersection of heaven and earth ๐ŸŒ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
the original name for the bayon temple was jayagiri (victory mountain) but it was changed to the banyan temple after the french occupancy. the angkor thom bayon temple is known for its huge stone faces, with one facing outward and keeping watch towards every main compass point.
there are 46 smaller towers surrounding the bayon temple. each tower has four bayon faces of its own.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
bayon was built in the late 12th, early 13th century as the official state temple of the mahayana buddhist king jayavarman vii, and the similarity of the faces on the temple compared to other statues of the king has led many to believe that the 216 faces represent jayavarman vii himself. others say the faces belong to the bodhisattva of compassion, avalokitesvara or lokesvara.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
i can’t believe how blessed we all are to be able to experience all the wonders that life has to offer- this place makes my soul so content and my heart smile.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
have you ever gone to a place that seemed unreal and like maybe your mind was playing tricks on you? let me know and i’d love to visit! sending lots of love and positive vibes ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

I travel a lot, but yesterday i was really spellbound and have never felt so humbled. angkor wat (temple city) is majestically grand yet has intricate designs. it’s something that i had only seen in books and standing there was nothing short of magic! it was like i’m time traveling!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
it was constructed in the 12th century and is considered to be the largest religious monument in the world. it was originally created as a hindu temple but in the 13th century was converted into a buddhist temple and is used as a place of worship till date. angkor wat is a mountain temple built to represent mount meru, the center of the world in hindu cosmology.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
this unesco world heritage site is considered a unique temple because it was dedicated to the hindu god vishu and is west facing unlike most other temples that are dedicated to the hindu god shiva and are east facing.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
even though i haven’t seen the magical sunrise yet, i will definitely be going back for that.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
can’t wait to share all my adventures with you! have you been to cambodia ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ญ? i’d love some tips! sending nothing but love and positive vibes ๐Ÿ’•

Omg you guys i’m literally in food coma! we had a delicious meal @hitchkimumbai and i could barely even walk after eating so much! ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
indian food is always delicious but for someone to exceed expectations is super impressive. the food and drinks here came with a twist- it’s indian food but has flavors from around the world.
pictured here are:
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
1) laksa biryani- indian biryani with a malaysian twist โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
2) indi chini bhai bhai- this is an “indo chinese” preparation that comes with indian naan bread and a chinese style gravy!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
not pictured here (cause i was being a glutton ๐Ÿ™ˆ):
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
thai red curry hummus (this was beyond delicious ๐Ÿ˜‹) hummus with a thai flavor and omg! i’ve never had anything like that before!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
a drink called imli ka boota (which i was told is a popular bollywood song ๐Ÿ’•)- this drink was absolutely yummy and unusual- the main ingredients were tequila, tamarind, oj and chaat masala! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
if you’re around, i most definitely recommend this cute restaurant with a tasteful decor and even better food! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
have you ever had an unforgettable meal on any of your travels or have a recommendation for me while i’m in mumbai? please share with me and let me know โค๏ธ

The gorgeous streets of mumbai, taking my breath away, 1 color at a time โค๏ธ
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
these are the treasures that i absolutely love finding when i’m exploring a place- so much character and soul to this city- it’s unbelievable! i love street art and this is from a famous bollywood movie called mughal-e-azam. this street is a testament to the never dying spirit of mumbai and the people of mumbai who find joy and color in everything!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
do you have a fav colorful street where you live or maybe something that you’ve come across on your travels? please share- i’d love to know!

Mumbai (bombay) has always welcomed me with manicured green lawns and high rise buildings and that makes me very happy. but what really fills my heart with joy and gratitude are the people- such lovely people with warm smiles and a huge heart- always willing to help! this is the view from my room @tridentbkc and everyone i meet here- staff, the other guests (believe me when i say everyone) has the most beautiful and genuine smile to offer and that will instantly make your day brighter! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
if you haven’t done so yet, i most definitely recommend you to visit mumbai atleast once in your life- it will change the way you look at life altogether!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
sending nothing but love and positive vibes! stay tuned for more on @tridentbkc and more of mumbai and india!

hey guys
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
sorry i’ve been missing for the past couple of days, we had a personal tragedy in our family, lost my cousin but we’re all coping now and learning to deal with life as we remember it โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
as you may remember, i’m on my way to india to explore some more of the gorgeous country and rediscover myself- i’ve been making a lot of changes in my life and i think it’s time for me to learn some more about myself- and what better place than india to do that- i’ll be going to an ashram to practice some yoga and get in touch with myself โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
how have you been? what plans for the weekend? sending lots of love and positive vibes and see you from the other side of the world ๐ŸŒŽ soon!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

it is said that once you’ve lived in nyc and made it your home, no place else is good enough.
i’ve lived in nyc for a few years and no matter what happens, a part of me will always be in nyc. i’ve had the privilege of calling cities across 4 continents my home but nyc, you’ll always hold a very special place in my heart โฃ until we meet again ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
i’m always so sad when i have to leave nyc!
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
what feels like home for you? please let me know!
sending lots of love and positive vibes your way! โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

have you been to the gorgeous wat plai laem in koh samui, thailand ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡ญ? it’s a unique, beautiful and colorful temple and one of my fav! the whole temple has such a positive vibe and one can’t help but feel more in tune with not just their own self but also the universe. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
my guide explained to me a little bit about this statue that (obviously) immediately caught my attention. the laughing buddha is called the budai and it is believed that his belly is so huge because he swallowed up all the suffering of all living creatures. it is believed that budai exudes plentiful wisdom and rubbing his belly brings good luck and prosperity. one of the reasons i love traveling is cause i get to meet so many interesting people whom i wouldn’t ever have met otherwise. i love the conversations we share and the things i learn when i talk to people who come from different walks of life- all having taken a different path to being where they are and trying to make sense of and live as holistic a life as possible.
โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
do you love meeting new people and interacting with them when you travel? have you met any interesting people on your travels and learnt any life lessons from them? please let me know. sending out nothing but positive vibes for you ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•
