Today’s Blogtember prompt: A memory you would love to relive.
In 2010, my roommate and I visited Cambodia. I have been fortunate enough to have visited many places on this wonderful planet, but only 3 of those have ever given me a sense of “home.” Cambodia is one of those places. We were driving back to our hotel from the Angkor temple complex in a tuk-tuk when I realized that there wasn’t a single place I’d rather be at that particular moment. Anyone with wanderlust can understand the significance of that feeling. I would love to relive that moment and not just because I was on a fabulous vacation and didn’t have to worry about work for a few more days. We’d been there long enough by that point for me to realize that Cambodia is a beautiful country with an even more beautiful people. Their customs, beliefs, perseverance, and hearts are just extraordinary. I would love to go back to that moment, to that country, and be at peace once more. I suppose I’m lucky in that I technically have the ability to make that happen (smile).
This photo represents the exact moment I’m talking about – out of all the pictures, memories, and years that have passed, I still dream of it just like it was yesterday.
