The Flying Dog

Got this pretty cool picture of our dog when hiking around last Sunday. He is a mixed breed, Chihuahua and Miniature Pinscher (chipin), and like any dog he loves to be let loose and just run around like a maniac.

Travel theme: Liquid

Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Liquid. My entry is from the river Vindelälven in Lappland, Northern Sweden. Quite the place to hiking, and just enjoy the stillness of the forest and the sound of the river flying by.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

Thankful is this week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post. This young girl was trying to sell us some souvenirs while temple-hopping in Cambodia this summer. She was quite a sales woman, and of course, those eyes also helped her seal the deal with us. I just remember the situation so well, as we only bought a few things from her and paid 1 or 2 USD – but she expressed so much gratitude and thankfulness for this that I will always remember her.

Here are some of my previous contributions:

Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration

The Daily Post today announced a Special Photo Challenge: Inspiration. So, what inspires me? I guess I am a focused, hard-working person. One of the reasons why, is my daily moments where I drift away dreaming of the next time I get to jump off the dive boat to start exploring a new dive site. These moments really inspires me.

Travel theme: Mystical

The travel theme at the Where’s My Backpack blog this week is Mystical. This to me is pretty mystical; get’s you wondering what is around the next corner.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

This weeks photo challenge is GREEN. I took this photo in the Swiss Alps (the Braunwald Area), maybe the most relaxing and greenest place I have seen.

Amazing Angkor Wat

We spent some hours walking round this magnificent temple. Of course, the whole area of Siem Reap is just stunning, but the main attraction of Angkor Wat is amazing.

Some info from Wikipedia. Angkor Wat is the largest Hindu temple complex in the world. The temple was built by King Suryavarman II in the early 12th century in present-day Angkor), the capital of the Khmer Empire, as his state temple and eventual mausoleum. Angkor Wat was dedicated to Vishnu. As the best-preserved temple at the site, it is the only one to have remained a significant religious centre since its foundation – first Hindu, dedicated to the god Vishnu, then Buddhist. The temple is at the top of the high classical style of Khmer architecture. It has become a symbol of Cambodia, appearing on its national flag, and it is the country’s prime attraction for visitors.
