First Impression of Flåm, Norway

Before I had the opportunity to laid eyes on these gorgeous sights, I dreamt over and over to be at this fascinating beauty sometime in my life. I was inspired by other bloggers, travel magazines, social media posts and my own obsessive search about this place and Norway in general. Well, I finally had the chance to see Flåm with my own eyes. The Tuesday morning of September 17 the first thing I did after waking up was going to the balcony of our cruise room and witness exquisite beauty all around me.

The fog, the tranquil waters, the water falls, the huge mountains and green grass were all part of the enchanted picturesque scenery that you see everywhere. I was in a delightful paradise, I loved it even more.

Later that day we went to visit a Viking Village where we learned details about their lifestyle, kind of contradictory of the peacefulness that Flåm projects. I will share,more of the Viking Village in another post.

Tian Tan Buddha in Hong Kong

Learn to appreciate other cultures is one of the greatest accomplishments of travel. Seeing our diversity of thinking, worshiping deities, how we classify priorities are some of the amazing things that you are expose when you travel. But more fascinating is to know that even though of all those differences at the end of the line we are all humans. We all have similar needs of having a purpose in life, of procreate and love.

It was my first time in Asia, and I have to be honest the culture impact to me was shocking. Still I enjoyed and embraced the differences. We went to visit the big Buddha in Lantau Island. It’s impressive what people can do to exalt what they think is divine. I never seen a deity monument so big.

Even though I don’t share the same religious believes that here in Hong Kong, I enjoyed learning about their culture and faith. This monument is huge and impressive, but the God I choose to believe and embrace, is too big and powerful to be able to  reduce Him in a monument, but is amazingly detail oriented to live in my heart (this is just my opinion and my faith) 😉
