Wat Pho in Bangkok and some of its 91 colorful stupas People usually visit because it's home to the largest Reclining Buddha - 46m (position suggesting reaching Nirvana), but the temple is much more than that. It's one of the oldest royal temples in Bangkok and the crib of public education in Thailand. The temple is also home to a Thai school of Medicine and it's considered the place of origin for Thai massage. I loved it for its amazing architecture.  #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . . #bangkok #archilovers #amazingthailand #urbanexploration #cbviews #citybestpics #streetdreamsmag #ihaveathingforwalls #thespaceislike #arkiromantix #visualarchitects #bitsofbuildings #allthealleys #places_wow #fantastic_earth #beautifuldestinations #huffpostgram #mytinyatlas #travelandleisure #IAmATraveler  #hello_worldpics #dametraveler #bbctravel #travelblog #cntraveler #alwaysgo #abmtravelbug #makemoments

Gorgeous Phra Nang Beach . The photo bias is there, but one can bypass it If you only take the photos everyone else is taking, are you still a photographer or a creative person? My guess is no, even if I'm also guilty of some cliché pics around here. That's because familiarity does bring a higher engagement, so maybe instagram isn't about creativity anymore. In the aftermath, it never was. Not taking that cliché travel pic is always a challange - everybody does it, but not everybody posts it. The subtle but important difference is to always strive to create some unique frame of yours. Can't help but feel grateful for this realization as it was one of the most important ones this year. You may not see those unique frames here because they don't fit instagram's status quo, but some are or will be on my blog. Also, I'll do a round-up of beautiful destinations visited this year in my instaStories (today or tomorrow). 2017 was a great year for travels and I'm feeling grareful for the 51 days spent on the road - 9 countries visited (6 new), 3 continents (2 new) and 12 trips. Hope 2018 will bring even more beautiful journeys! . #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . . #visitthailand #islandvibes #tree_magic #adventureculture #liveoutdoors #wildernessculture #adventurethatislife #thegreatoutdoors #stayandwander #in2nature #amazingthailand #fantastic_earth #beautifuldestinations #huffpostgram #mytinyatlas #landscape_captures #nature_brilliance #travellingthroughtheworld #IAmATraveler #hello_worldpics #bbctravel #travelblog #cntraveler #alwaysgo #guardiantravelsnaps #abmtravelbug #makemoments

Pretty tropical island in the middle of Andaman Sea, on our way to Hong Island - Koh Lao La Ding . Also, my 1st snorkeling stop in Thailand. Don't know why, but fish make me happy while sergeant fish do spark a childlike enthusiasm in a heartbeat. We had lunch on this amazing beach, enjoyed chasing the fish through the turquoise waters, and felt sorry we had to leave so soon. Of course, the following beaches were as spectacular as this one. .  #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . . #tree_magic #adventureculture #liveoutdoors #wildernessculture #adventurethatislife #thegreatoutdoors #stayandwander #in2nature #amazingthailand #fantastic_earth #beautifuldestinations #huffpostgram #mytinyatlas #landscape_captures #nature_brilliance #travellingthroughtheworld #IAmATraveler #paradiseisland #hello_worldpics #dametraveler #bbctravel #travelblog #cntraveler #alwaysgo #guardiantravelsnaps #abmtravelbug #makemoments

Wat Arun, one of the most beautiful temples in Bangkok, and its insta-famous white columns. . On another note, these days I'm busy with painting the house all white. Well, I know it's a bit crazy to do it now, last minute, but spontaneity is as good as thoughtful planning, right? 😊 . #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . #widenyourworld #natgeotravel #beautifuldestinations #travelchannel #tlpicks #mytinyatlas #travellingthroughtheworld #fantastic_earth #darlingescapes #bbctravel #cntraveler #adventureculture #guardiantravelsnaps #travelblogger #doyoutravel #abmtravelbug #rsa_minimal #makemoments #street_perfection #bitsofbuildings #allthealleys #theprettycities #ihaveathingforwalls #whpstripes #amazingthailand #kings_through #whywhiteworks #travelawesome

As we get close to the end of this year, looking back at our little victories comes naturally. I've never posted photos of myself here or anywhere else as much as this year. The reason they keep popping into this feed is that I've been working a lot lately to lose the extra 10kg I've gained last year. I've started 2017 with 76 and now I'm at 69kg, but still have 5 more to go. . Losing 7kg in 12 months might not seem much, but it was a struggle to give up all those yummy breakfast croissants, pasta, sauces & breads. Going to the gym at least once a week for the past 2,5 months hasn't been a walk in the park either, especially with my laziness when it comes to sports. But I think it was worth it, and half of that extra weight is gone, so how much harder can it get? .

White Temple and the Koi fish to match it, in addition to a great reflection. . The day spent in Chiang Rai was one of the highlights of my Thailand trip, hence the amount of pics posted here and on the blog. . Unlike the popular belief that Thailand is Paradise on Earth, I feel there are plenty of things keeping it from being a perfect destination. But for now, let's say that Thailand was a good learning opportunity. . Have a great Sunday! . #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . #widenyourworld #natgeotravel #beautifuldestinations #travelchannel #tlpicks #mytinyatlas #travellingthroughtheworld #fantastic_earth #darlingescapes #bbctravel #cntraveler #adventureculture #guardiantravelsnaps #travelblogger #doyoutravel #abmtravelbug #makemoments #street_perfection #bitsofbuildings #allthealleys #ihaveathingforwalls #whpstripes #thailand #amazingthailand #whywhiteworks #travelawesome #reflectiongram #puddlegram

White Temple is beyond stunning! It's also one of the two reasons I wanted to visit Chiang Rai. The other one is Long Neck Village. 1st article about Thailand is up on the blog > How to spend a perfect in Chiang Rai. And I got lucky to catch some awesome frames. On another note, I didn't think a 5 hours time difference can cause such a jet lag, so I'm constantly up at 2, 3 or 4 a.m., drinking 2 coffee mugs a day and still walking in zombie land. Today started at 4 a.m., so I've already worked, did some things for the blog, and a chicken soup is on its way.😂 So if you know a good fix for jet lag, please share it with me. Also, this is the 5th day...how much longer? 🙈 . #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . #widenyourworld #natgeotravel #beautifuldestinations #travelchannel #tlpicks #mytinyatlas #travellingthroughtheworld #fantastic_earth #darlingescapes #bbctravel #cntraveler #adventureculture #guardiantravelsnaps #travelblogger #doyoutravel #abmtravelbug #rsa_minimal #makemoments #street_perfection #bitsofbuildings #allthealleys #theprettycities #ihaveathingforwalls #whpclassic #thailand #amazingthailand #whywhiteworks #travelawesome

What makes Chiang Mai a favorite living destination for so many people from around the world? . Didn't find an answer yet, but I'm hoping someone or something will be my Aha moment. . Until then, I'm visiting some lovely temples like Wat Chedi Luang & going to expat coffee shops in search of an answer. . #AnaTravelsToThailand . . . . . . #chiangmai #amazingthailand #sheisnotlost #huffpostgram #mytinyatlas #landscape_captures #whpinspired #travellingthroughtheworld #IAmATraveler #wearetravelgirls #hello_worldpics #bbctravel #travelblog #cntraveler #alwaysgo #guardiantravelsnaps #abmtravelbug #thatsdarling #inspiremyinstagram #makemoments #agameoftones #moodygrams #tv_living #click_vision #street_perfection #rsa_streetview  #bitsofbuildings #allthealleys #theprettycities

Mesmerizing Cave & Beach🌴 Spent the day on Phra Nang Beach admiring the green islands, walked along the most beautiful cave and met with an Asian Water Monitor (big lizard). Thailand, you are amazing! . After visiting so many cities, an outdoor adventure with a hint of wilderness is just what I needed.
