Fabulous Friday Foto: Glastonbury Abbey, England

The Ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, England

  Glastonbury Abbey is the site of a spectacular set of ruins of an ancient 12th century monastery.  Located in south west England, Glastonbury Abbey was an extremely worthy afternoon excursion. Walking through the ruins of the ancient monastery makes you feel like you have stepped into another time, and they are filled with incredible photo […]

Fabulous Friday Foto: Subway Station in St Petersburg Russia

Inside of the subway station in St. Peterburg Russia

  The ornate decorations and antiquated train cars that we saw in the subway station in St Petersburg Russia looked like they came from another era (they actually reminded me of the antique subway cars that we saw at a museum in New York from the 50’s and 60’s).  The subway station itself was ornately […]

Fabulous Friday Foto: Incense and Offerings At A Temple in Thailand

Worship At Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai, Thailand

I found the sincerity of the offerings that we saw being made at the temples that we visited around Thailand to be refreshing.  It was clearly evident that the majority of the people who were there to worship at the temple in Thailand felt a deep connected to their faith.  They had taken time out […]
