Thursday Doors

In the neck of my woods, Penang is known for a few things  – great street art, great street food and a UNESCO World Heritage city.  All of that were exciting, enticing and engaging a first time visitor like myself.  As I was exploring the island-city I became  enchanted with front doors of some of the heritage houses.

No need to adjust the monitor.  I snap the planes from inside the departure lounge (of Suvarnabhumi Airport) where there is a metal net covering the glass window.

The last time I travelled anywhere was last September.  The last time I went to places in my bucket list – Pagan and Mandalay in Myanmar – was last July.  It wasn’t that I didn’t have the opportunity to travel since then but that’s another story all together.

However, I am going to vacation the next ten days, starting with a nature hike in Kanchanaburi; then off to the island of Penang; and returning to the 100-year floating market in Samut Sakon.  And then the ultimate trip will be the family pilgrimage to the Philippines in December.  I guess the travel diet is over and I’m stuffing myself with wanderlust.
