Phaya naga are mythical serpents that are believed to live in the Mekong river and other waterways of Laos. . A protector of the Lao people, Naga are particularly revered by those who live by rivers and waterways. Before any outing, boatmen will pray to the Naga and give offerings and during boat racing season, participants will bow in unison to the Naga before participating in a race. . The belief in naga is shown in many other ways throughout Laos. Body tattoos of the naga are popular among elderly men; Tai-daeng people avoid wrapping their heads in red cloth so as not to offend the Naga (as he himself has a red crest ) and Naga patterns are seen in many traditional Lao weaving designs. . This gorgeous wooden carved Naga resides at Wat Sisaket in Vientiane capital.

Family history is something I’ve been curious about for as long as I can remember. Over time, I’ve collected pieces of my mom’s and her parents’ immigration story by asking them questions whenever I found a gap that needed to be filled. I thought I had all of the pieces of the puzzle, that there was nothing else to learn. Then I did 23andme in January, and it sparked a new chapter of curiosity. Not because my ancestry results were surprising (I am a true child of the Mediterranean 🙌🏼 ), but because it reminded me how much more there still was to learn. ⁣ 〰️ ⁣ The time we spent in Campania this July was a way for me to reconnect with the land where my mom and her parents came from and my family still living there. It felt new; it felt familiar. ⁣I picked up a few pieces of history from my cousins despite the language barrier, and even more from my Aunt Mary in Switzerland that I never imagined were part of the story. I’ll get to that, later.⁣ 〰️⁣ Our trip to Europe started conversations that are filling in some of the gaps on my mom’s side, but my dad’s family history is a vacuum. All I know is some of his relatives came from Calabria, but I don’t know exactly where or who or when. He only had one grandparent as a kid and didn’t ask questions. After today, I know there will be many gaps I can never fill. My Great Uncle Joe had some of the answers, and I had been meaning to ask if I could talk to him. But I kept putting it off, assuming there would always be time. He was diagnosed with metastatic cancer last week after not feeling well for months. Today, he died. He was the kind of person who would light you up whenever you saw him.⁣ 〰️⁣ This is all to say, if you have important questions to ask, or connections to make, don’t keep shoving it off until it’s convenient. I’ve always wanted to learn to cook old family recipes that aren’t written down, and I hope I can do that the next time I see my grandparents I do have. Tomorrow is never certain.

Old planes, young pilots, weather delays, short runways nestled deep in valleys and high on ridges, incredible views, cotton balls passed out on takeoff to protect passenger’s ears from the roaring of the engines. I could definitely shoot a whole project on domestic air-travel in Nepal.

‘This is a private institution and we don’t let visitors in our libraries.’ Then what is this Visitor Registration Kiosk, I point to a nearby registration desk. ‘Oh, it’s for visitors who are here for research.’ Well, I happen to be a renowned researcher in my village, and I must research posthaste. Really, library lady at Stanford? • • • #waqlibrarytour #visitcalifornia #sfpulse #paloalto

Google reminded me that 8 years ago I went on a bike tour along the Appian Way to the incredible Parco degli Acquedotti with @topbikerental in #Rome 🚴‍♀️ I learned the hard way that the saying “it’s just like riding a bike” is not always true. 🤦‍♀️ At least there was a good story to tell.

Learning etymologies and origins of names definitely add more dimensions to your travel experience •• As with any natural formations that look less ordinary than others, we found a certain rock formation named ‘Irish Lady’ to be of a particularly interesting story: An Irish shipwreck from a storm had caused all those aboard to perish in the sea except for a lady. She somehow barely survived on top of this rock formation, but soon she succumbed her life to the sea and the locals watched helplessly as her body was washed away. •• Legend has it that fishermen would see the Irish Lady when the winds and waves are high. —— 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 coastal beauties of cornwall 📝 clockwisetravel.com —— #clockwisetravel #travelwriter #travelingblogger #newblogposts #ppsummerpostcard #rgphoto #instabritain #traveldeeper #fodorsonthego #walkingcornwall #explore_britain #pathport #afarmag #iamatraveler #tlpicks #mytinyatlas #britishseasides #travelgram #lovegreatbritain #culturetrip #travellingthroughtheworld #ricksteveseurope #bbctravel #bradttravels #ocean #coast #explorecornwall #travelengland #travelgreatbritain #landsend

A Room with a View Tag a friend who would like this view! . While Hotel Miramalfi doesn't have the largest rooms, it does have one amazing thing - a spectacular location up and on the edge of the water with stunning views that look back towards Amalfi Coast . Here I am on the balcony catching the glorious scene during blue hour. Being a bit away from the town center, it has views and spaces that open up to the breezes and sea, making the journey there really worth it . . . . . . #amalfi #ocean #bluehour #miramalfi #miramalfihotel #amalficoast #visitamalficoast #beautiful__travel #travelphotography #igtravel #italy_vacations #bestplacesmagazine #best_amalficoast #ig_amalficoast #amalficoast_ #theprettycities #igersitalia #rsa_main #tv_aqua #destination_amalficoast #jj_seasons #raw_italy #raw_waters #raw_mod #raw_community_members #yourshotphotographer #traveldeeper #culturetrip #afarmag #raw_members_travel

MOSES. KING OF THE SLAVES & FACTOTUM. ENSLAVED HERE 1762 - 1812. . . . One of the things I deeply appreciate about living and traveling in Connecticut is that every inch of the state is saturated with history. Stories of the past are everywhere, often right under your feet. The Witness Stones Project in Guilford is one way local people have chosen to remember that history. These stones are placed at sites where enslaved African Americans were known to have lived and worked. The idea comes from the German Stolpersteine, or Stumbling Stones, which mark locations where Jews and others murdered by the Nazis once lived. . . . The Guilford stones were placed in downtown sidewalks to “pique the interest of the researcher and viewer of the stones to cause them to find out more about the enslaved persons and slavery.” You can read more about the project, as well as about Moses and other enslaved people in Connecticut, at witnessstones.org. #thesizeofconnecticut

I have this thing for details. And if it involves gilding, well that just makes it even more swoon-worthy! . Detail of a side pagoda at Wat Xieng Thong in Luang Prabang. Built around 1560 by the Lao King Setthathirath, Wat Xieng Khong sits on the tip of the Northern peninsula. . The variety of Lao mosaics and decorations at Wat Xieng Thong is why everyone falls in love with this gorgeous temple complex 💙

One of my favorite summer memories — hiking down to this ridiculously awesome waterfall ✨ This one checked all my boxes: clear blue water, in unique surroundings, on a perfectly sunny but cool day, without being ~super~ challenging. Oregon waterfalls WIN.

We waited it out in an upstairs bar after wading through flooded streets. And then it stopped and we wandered through this beautiful city looking for a restaurant that had been recommended to us. Hoi An is an amazing place, and my favorite stop on our trip. Lots of people apparently agree with me.


Who wants to go for a bike ride?! I'm usually a huge walker, but biking around cities is becoming my new must-do activity every place I go, especially at night when fewer tourists are out!
