Borobudur was a moment in which I was able to be still and not just learn but actually apply, in the moment, the lesson of peace and stillness; which brought about joy. It must be no coincidence that the t-shirt I put on to wear the morning we rose before the sun, was from the #FindYours campaign I did with Expedia. It says, “Find Your Joy.” And in the moment that this photo was taken, that — and more — is what I had found. et, at Borobudur, sitting in wait for the sunrise to blind me and thrill me, having nothing else to do but wait, amongst a place of physical beauty (a characteristic that always excites me) — peace, stillness and joy are exactly what filled all the rooms I had for rent.

Ahhh the famous Borobudur Sunrise.. The beautiful postcard image of Buddha against the backdrop of the golden sun. Well, we weren't so lucky. We sat and waited.. and the sky just turned bright and that was it. However, it was lovely waiting in the cool morning air, and getting to slowly explore the temple before the heat and crowds came in. I guess witnessing sunrises is all about luck with the weather. At least it wasn't raining! It was very peaceful and I felt as if I could sit on the steps and just gaze at the landscape for a long time.
