After several unsuccessful attempts of @sreshtiverma trying to click my picture here but not getting the frame right and then blaming me for looking like a school girl. One of the few reasons why I don't have a good picture at Doi Suthep.
Chiang Mai was so beautifully decorated for the Loi Krathong festival that I couldn't stop clicking pictures. The lanterns you see here were the most common part of the decor and yet they didn't seem overbearing at any single moment. 😍😍😍😍
Resuming my Thailand posts now that I'm back in Delhi. Sorry there was a lot happening these last few days in Chiang Mai and I couldn't get around to posting regularly. But now I'll be giving regular updates on here 😁. If there's one word I could use to sum up this experience it would be "spectacular". In the short time we spent in Thailand, we ended up doing so much that I'm still a little disoriented now that I'm back. From visiting temples and eating like crazy, to meeting some really cool people and participating in the beautiful lantern festival — it was a whirlwind. Lot of fun content coming up for you guys 💕. . . . And through this all, I used my @mastercardindia credit card for all my spends. I don't usually prefer to carry cash because you end up losing a lot of money in the exchange rate. So this card is perfect! And they also have a lot of offers going on for Thailand at the moment where you can get some sick deals if you're planning to visit. You can receive a Siam Gift Card worth THB300 at ICONSIAM, an iconic mall on the banks of Chao Phraya River, on spending THB5000 on your MasterCard debit/credit card. Just carry the sale slip with you here and check out @mastercardindia and @axis_bank for discounts, cashbacks and more! #MakeThailandYours #travelwithmastercard #axisbank
On our last day in Bangkok we went to a beautiful river side restaurant for brunch and just ended up sitting there for hours. The piers in Bangkok are lined with beautiful restaurants and coffee shops that are definitely worth a visit. They're a bit on the pricy side, but one indulgent meal never hurt anybody. . .

Would you like to see a video/vlog from this Thailand trip? Well I've attempted to capture everything on video and this is a picture of @sreshtiverma capturing me capturing a video. It's capture-ception 🤯.
Thai architecture in Bangkok seems to have a lot of European influence despite being the only country in southeast Asia to have never been colonised. It's actually a result of trade practices followed in Thailand in the 1800s. The neo classical Portuguese influence is the most notable. This window is a part of the iconic yellow building opposite the Grand Palace in Bangkok that now serves as the Ministry of Defence.
I'm not a fan of visiting temples mostly because I feel they house a lot more negative energy (because people come in there either with their greivances, wishes or desires). But this time around @sreshtiverma introduced me to a new perspective that temples also allow one to witness the culture of a place concentrated in one place. So we set out on a quest to explore the city's temples. We could only manage to witness q few but we quickly realised that the temples in Bangkok are more like monuments than actual places if worship. This is not to say that prayer rituals don't take place there. But those areas are mostly tucked away from the public eye. We did see a lot of people come to these places for shooting pictures though.
As I post this picture, the first of many from Bangkok, Thailand, I want to share a thought I had last night over a couple of drinks with @sreshtiverma. Often times we find stuff in our lives that we are unhappy about and want to change but there are those rare moments when we realise that there's a lot to be grateful for. Last night, I had a series of such moments where I realised I am really grateful in my life at this point to have the freedom of choice - a luxury not many people enjoy. In fact, growing up and even up to a few years ago, I didn't have this privilege. But then I made way for it by removing myself from people and situations that don't allow me to exercise choice. And I'm working on not running away but standing headstrong and sticking to decisions even in the face of pressure. But while I develop that skill, I'm going to continue propagating the freedom to choose. . . PS. More pictures coming soon
