I was reading a post on Road Junky about how photography turns the traveler into a tourist… And I can say that I’m quite agree with it.
What is the most important thing when traveling?
See the crowded night market with Luang Prabang houses on the background. Hear the people talking in Lao, sometimes in simple English like “Take a look, mister” or “Only a thousand kip, mister”. Smell the spiciness of Thum Muk Hoong, making your nose itch…
Then feel your tongue burns after you try it. Feel the cool breeze around you as you walk through the market and the different ambiance you felt back at home.
It is okay to snap a lot of pictures when we’re traveling… But remember to also experience it with your whole self 🙂
note: Thum Muk Hoong is a very spicy Lao Papaya Salad… Recommended for those who have a strong stomach 😀
