Wat Pho - The Temple of the Reclining Buddha

The next temple that we visited on our private tour with Your Thai Guide was Wat Pho to see the Temple of the Reclining Buddha.  Wat Pho is actually a large temple complex and home to the largest collection of Buddha images in Thailand. This was my favorite stop of the day (in addition to the Lotus farm).

Golden Buddha of Wat Traimit

It's time to show you some more photos from one of our most incredible trips.  Thailand was so high on our list.  We only had one week to spend there which is never going to be enough.  I was probably in love with Thailand before we even went, and it did not disappoint in any way.  I loved every site, sound and smell.  It was absolute magic.  We had such a short time in Bangkok, but we got in a much as we could by booking a private tour with Your Thai Guide.  After visiting the a floating market and a lotus farm, our guide Nina took us to visit Wat Traimit, the Temple of the Golden Buddha.

The Surrey County Show

I started this post yesterday and planned to get up this morning and add some text.  But I just can't do it.  With things going on at home and afar, I just can't get my blogging mojo back.  So I think I'll just go with that for awhile.  These photos cheer me up a little so I hope you enjoy them.  It really was a great day  

I have a quick suggestion for you.  If you live in the UK, mark your calendars right now for May 29, 2017.  I'll wait while you do that...  That is the date of the next Surrey County Show and the countdown has started, 318 days to go.   If you're an American in the UK, you will particularly love this.  It's like a really great County Fair with a very British twist.  It's a terrific day out!   If you have children, they are really going to love it.
