Wander Pi Wednesdays: Sunrise Over Borobudur

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

Located on Indonesia’s island of Java, Borobudur is home to the largest Buddhist temple in the world. Three-hundred years older than Angkor Wat, the temple was built between the 8th and 9th century and is positioned between twin active volcanoes which makes the view from the top even more impressive. With a total of 504 Buddha statues and various stupas built throughout the monument, the structure itself is the perfect frame.

Wander Pi Wednesdays: Morning Mist in Borneo

Every Wednesday, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite photos from my travels.

Last fall, I spent some time exploring the serene jungles of Borneo where I encountered all kinds of wildlife, including orangutans, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, and hornbills. This photo was taken along the Kinabatangan River during sunrise. We were lucky enough to experience the jungle in the early morning hours as we cruised along the beautiful, still, and silent river. The jungle looks completely different at this time of day. Watching the sun come up over the horizon and the mist slowly fade away was a truly breathtaking experience.
