Inspiration: Thailand

Plan B anna evers Inspiration: Thailand 13

This past summer I was lucky enough to visit a country that I’ve been wanting to visit for a long time: Thailand! It is a country so full of culture that it is impossible not to be inspired by its landscape , its people, its flavors and colors. I was shocked by how similar it was to the Dominican Republic ( yes, I know it’s hard to believe ) But I think the similarities between these countries comes from the similar climate and latitud that shapes the personalities of the people as well as the culture. (this is the only logical explanation I can think of , if you have an opinion , feel free to comment on this 🙂 ) I want to share with you a small collection of photos of this beautiful country , to inspire and nourish the eye. Hope you enjoy 😉

In Bangkok, it is a sin not to visit the Grand Palace and the Wat Phra Kaew where the Emerald Buddha rests. It is a very touristy place, but certainly one of the most beautiful.

Every corner of Wat Phra Kaew seems to be touched by King Midas… A tremendous amount of detail is used down to the millimeter in its buildings and a certain brightness is given off by the sculptures and statues .

Another detail that fascinated me was the amount of lotus flowers that were in the temples… These are given to the Buddha as offerings by hundreds of people along with smoldering sticks of incense permeating the air. ( In Annaeversplanb Instagram account you can see as you open a lotus flower by hand)

It’s hard to eat badly in this country, because there are a thousand stalls and fresh fruit cars anywhere you visit.

On the way to Chiang Mai we decided to make a stop at Sukhothai. To our surprise, this was the place we liked most in Thailand… A small city with a surprising historical park. Simply a “must”.
