‘I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.’
Last time we were in Thailand a couple years ago, we somehow skipped Wat Arun. 😲 This time, we made sure to stop by and boy are we glad we did. Wat Arun is so spectacular and different from most temples in Thailand, with it’s whitewashed walls and colorful ceramic pieces everywhere. ❤️
Are there any places you skipped and totally regret / plan to go back?
Surround yourself with dreamers and doers, believers and thinkers - but most of all surround yourself with people who see greatness in you, even when you don’t see it yourself. 🔥

For the past three days, I’ve just been in a space of complete self-enclosure. I wake up when I naturally open my eyes, and sleep with the sound of the ocean crashing next to my bed. It’s a beautiful thing really because I don’t have talk to anyone and at the same time I am completely self-satisfied. There are not too many people in this small part of Koh Phangan, which is more suited to families and couples rather than individual backpackers. Nonetheless, the causal nothingness of activity could easily keep me here for days.
I find that spending time in such places with myself is necessary for my mental health. To give myself the opportunity to be still and just feel my feet against the sand. To lie in a hammock without thinking a single thought, drifting away into a conscious state of relaxation. And as much as I love the mountains, the ocean always has a powerful effect in bringing me to these natural states of internal harmony. It washes away anything I was concerned about and throws me back onto the land with a renewed sense of well-being.
As I looked out across into the horizon, I couldn’t see where it even ended. I imagined sailing all the way to the other side of the world. Landing up on some deserted beach and discovering things I hadn’t seen before. The ocean gave me such a profound sense of unity, because as far as my mind could imagine, I could reach anywhere from this little patch of blue. More than anything, the ocean humbles me. It reminds that one day, we’re all going to be recycled just like everything it contains.
True story : our tuk tuk just popped a wheelie! I think we might win this one. 🇹🇭

Being grateful is vital to my daily happiness...especially on days when being happy is harder than doing a handstand. I spent many years in my teens and early twenties in the 12 step program rooms and one of the greatest tools I learned was a daily gratitude list. Doing this not only helps when I KNOW I need it but it works best when I didn’t even realize I was in a negative headspace. The 3 things on my gratitude list today:
3. Supportive and loving friends like the people behind the camera when we took this pic.
What are you grateful for today? 📸 @actionhiro #thailand#travel#luxurytravel#thailandinsider#yogaaroundtheworld
I love a good Michelin-starred restaurant as much as anyone, but without a doubt the best meals of my life have been in much humbler surrounds.
Whether served by the side of the road or out of someone’s home, is there anything better than a deceptively simple meal that blows your tastebuds away? When food is created with love, local and fresh, and presented with great pride...I believe that’s what makes for a truly satisfying time at the table.
It’s also a good reminder that the best things in life don’t always arrive in the most glamorous packaging. Give me the lemongrass soup or garlic ginger chicken above this Thai woman’s garage any day.
Who else has a meal memory where this rings true? 🍜
