This is #Hanuman and he watches over the entrance to the Ramayana Cave at #batucaves in #Malaysia. Inside, the cave is filled with impressive dioramas of the Indian '#Ramayana'. Not only is it something you must see, it's a great place to escape the heat! When I visited it was incredibly hot, but the cave is cool. When in #KualaLumpur, add to your list. . . . . . . . #PassportForLife #InspiredTravels #CruiseBlog #WorldWonder #Tagsta_Travel #MyTravelGram #WorldPlaces #PostcardsFromTheWorld #Travelling #TravelTheWorld #Getaway #TravelWriter #TravelDeeper #TravelEnvy #flashesofdelight #girlsgoneglobal #GlobeTrotter #Wanderlust #exploretocreate #TravelJunkie #TravelWithMe #TravelMore #IAmATraveler #visualsoflife
The couple in this picture were on @fred.olsencruiselines Black Watch with me for her #worldcruise. We were in Paihia and I spotted them admiring the view across the islands. The photo wasn't staged, it was just me being in the right place at the right time to capture their moment. I emailed the photo to them -they fell in love with it - and they had the onboard photographer blow it up and put it on a canvas. It's now one of their favourite memories from the cruise. ❤⚓ . . . . . . . . #passportforlife #inspiredtravels #cruiseblog #worldwonder #tagsta_travel #mytravelgram #worldplaces #postcardsfromtheworld #dametraveler #darlingescapes #travellushes #globelletravels #womenwhoexplore #femaletravelbloggers #doyoutravel #influencer #roamtheplanet #openmyworld #mytinyatlas #travelblogger #passionpassport #worldingram #cruise #newzealand #love #pictureperfect
