L A O S - Luang Prabang

Second week of our travel last months we went to Luang Prabang in Laos.
More than 30 Buddhistical Monasteries are an important part of this lovely small town.

The clocks run slower in this city...

The second time in our life we met the wonderful river Mekong. 
(First time in Cambodia, Phnom Peng)
The Mekong runs more than 1800 kilometer through Laos. 
Luang Prabang is embraced by the Mekong and his tributary Nam Khan. 
So everywhere you go you end at the river (s)...
It´s a good idea to rest at the river during the whole day but mostly at sunset, magical moments are promised...
And there we promised to visit the Mekong Delta one day...

I truly fell in Love with this peaceful city and the very charming people. 
Life is unagitated at every moment. 
As you know my love for colors I get giddy with excitement while visiting the night market. 
C o l o r s and wonderful handicraft!
And you don´t have to miss the "Khao Nom Kok" Dessert, 
a sweet coconut cake. I could die for it....

Those four days where totally relaxed and we promised to come back to sweet Laos one day...

Love J.

N a m a s t e - Dreaming of India

After traveling is before traveling:-)
Since weeks I´m mad with the color combination of orange and pink tones
in my Artwork.
This picture arrives in Laos one day while dreaming of India again. 
I guess the India Project comes near...
And besides, I´m totally M A D about doodling, 
Zentangles and patterns as you can see...

Love J.

Vietnam II - HUE - Incense Village

While the weather is cold and rainy in Hamburg I need some colors and want to show you more of our colorful Vietnam & Laos Travels last months.
We also visited the little Incense Village Thuy Xuan Hat, near Huế.

I´m a lover of Incense Sticks and I planned it in Germany to visit this little village. You could visit little factories and could have an insight to the process.

I hope the colors could brighten your weekend, have a  s w e e t  one!
Love J.

V i e t n a m I - HOI AN

W o w ! 
Finally we are back from four  w o n d e r f u l  weeks of 
traveling through Vietnam & Laos.

This post shows photos from the beautiful city Hội An in Central Coast Vietnam.  
This little city is colorful, lively and very charming.
Above on the right you can see the most photographed building, 
The Japanese Bridge - Chùa Cầu, but from the back…

It was our first time in Vietnam and most of all we can´t prevent to photography all the sweet coolie hats all the time…

We often rent bicycles and explore the beautiful surroundings.
There is so much beauty and silence…

It was a very happy and peaceful trip with many magical moments and enchanting experiences.
I´ll show your more photos next weeks!
Now I´m happy to be back at home with beautiful spring all around.
We left Saigon at 39 degrees, not really my temperature…

I wish you a deeply  i n s p i r i n g  weekend!

Love J.
