Waterfalls of Semuc Champey, Guatemala

From the tiny town of Lanquin, Guatemala it's possible to trek through forest, swim through a dark cave, and slide down waterfalls. One of the more adventurous parts of my past travels in Guatemala was a day-trip to the waterfalls of Semuc Champey.

Seen from a mirador, or lookout point here, these series of turquoise stepped pools form a gorgeous swimming hole!

Temples of Luang Prabang

Laos is one of my favorite countries in Asia, and I first fell in love with Luang Prabang, a small town steeped in a history that marches across the buildings. Each storefront in the city's tiny, walkable center marries a unique blend of French-European colonialism with the traditional Laotian styles. And between these buildings, gilded temples are filled with chanting monks. It's such a beautiful blend of history and culture that its a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In this photo, Vat Ho Pha Bang shines against the ultramarine sky and purple bougainvillea within the pristine National Museum complex. The city retains a rural and small-town feel despite it’s place in history as a royal capital in the 8th century, and an active trading hub on the Silk Road for many succeeding centuries. Now, it’s a UNESCO world heritage city, but no longer the capital of Laos, which I think is a very key reason the city has remained small despite globalism and tourism.

One of my favorite photos from my travels through Burma earlier this year. Hundreds of monks lined up at the Mahagandayon Monastery in Mandalay.

My niece and I released our candlelit, handmade krathongs, along with our wishes for the coming year, into the Ping River last night under a midnight blue sky lit by thousands of amber colored lanterns -- such a magical night.
