On a layover in Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea, it was totally worth it to wait on these pink chairs. I mean, why not pink chairs? Orchids were the standard norm here, like common daisies or geraneums. Such an unexpected sign that said "welcome!
Of course, temples are everywhere for each and everyone, as well as palaces, fit for well, you know...kings. Each is rich and unique and makes you spend an entire afternoon saying "wow". Aren't I eloquent?
First day in Bangkok. If only there could be scratch and sniff over the internet. Yes, you see all the color and texture, but what is missing here are the olfactory delights. A whiff of burning incense, simmering fish sauce in the wok from the sidewalk vendors, fresh flower offerings and oh, the fumes from exhaust. It's not perfect.
Look at all this color! For a girl who craves this, someone who has just left the black and gray January gloom and doom that is Seattle,this worked me! I highly recommend beaming yourself here. It's very do-able.
Here's a typical close-up. This kind of rich color and beautiful combinations makes for slow going on my outings. Good thing I'm on my own. I might drive any other travel companion mad with my attention to all the detail. (Check out the person sitting in the corner, meditating perhaps.) Gives an idea of the scale.
Well, it's time for dinner. I could have phad thai or green curry or panang or chicken and cashew stir fry , spicy papaya salad but I have decided on this. The turquoise plate was the clincher.
Now I'm on a plane for Krabi, towards the decadent beachy party of the trip. Look at these seats on Thai Airways. They say I have arrived!!!!! Aren't they wonderful! And festive! And happy?
It's another world down here. But just as magical.
Didn't I hear once that blue is calming? Ahhh...
Pantone people...eat your heart out. Turquoise has always been the "Color of the Year"!
I made sure I got in good shape before I landed here. But I didn't need my running shoes after all. I just sat and dwelled on infinity.
