Wanderlust: Thailand

I wish I had spent more time traveling the remote areas of South East Asia discovering the Silk Road path and the many colorful fabric markets the region has to offer.  I am a bit jealous of the photos my bf is sending me from Bangkok. Apart from his stint in Singapore, he has been taking side trips to a different city on the weekend.

This is just a typical Sunday afternoon in Chatuchak market, one of Bangkok's largest markets boasting over 8,000 stalls. You really could get lost. The heart of the silk industry in Thailand is located in Khorat. One day I will have to visit, but for now I just have these photos.

  3. My dream is to travel to exciting places someday but for now, I'll have to enjoy everyone else's great photos. That first picture with the colorful silk blows me away! Being a fabric nut like I am, I think I'd be in heaven being there in person. I love all those colors. I'd making up some desktop backgrounds and backgrounds for some of my scrap pages. Love that!
