Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Lost in this moment…..

Sleeping in my clothes & jumping up at 4am to be the first in line to see sunrise peek over the top of the Angkor Wat temple deep in the Cambodia jungle near Siem Reap. The orange and yellow hues slowly crept up & the mosquitos startedtheir chant. It was mesmerizing. Larger than life.

The biggest temple in the world covers 401 square miles with 50 temples. A magical place of wonder & mystery of centuries long ago. My playground for the day was climbing and exploring this ancient labyrinth.

To reach the top of the sacred temple, you must wait in line to climb the 50+ steep steps where only 100 people are permitted at a time. Along the first courtyard on the left, I hung a heart to serve as a reminder to embrace the journey as the hardest paths will lead to the most beautiful inspirations.

Be anything but ordinary! #extraordinary #embracethejourney
