Same same but different (Part 2)

When we were in Siem Reap, we visited around 19 temples. I know that some don’t see the sense in this, going around for days gazing at old structures that look the same. They are all the same, but no one can deny the beauty of each of these temples. The size and grandeur of these temples will leave you in awe.

When we went to this trip, we expected to feel some sort of transcendence once we  got inside each temple. Well, sadly, there was none of that. However, these temples gave us something else. We did not know where to begin. We wanted to take it all in – everything that we see. We took photos of almost everything we laid our eyes on. We wanted to have something that we could take back home that could help us relive whatever we saw there.

The temple complex was a feast for our eyes.

As much as we want to fill this post with the right words that would describe our experience, there are stories that are best told through photos. Enjoy! 🙂
