Angkor Wat, Cambodia ✨
Things didn’t turn out as I’d planned when we visited Siem Reap, Cambodia. I’d originally booked a sunrise tour of Angkor Wat plus a cycling tour of the temple complex (there are tons of other beautiful, ornate temples there, it’s not just Angkor Wat). Lo and behold, we wake up at 4am and, it is POURING rain. Like, torrential rain, obviously not conducive to cycling. For about a straight hour, after I’d reluctantly called and canceled the tour, i was devastated about my loss at being able to see Angkor Wat at sunrise—such an iconic and once in a lifetime scene. I realized afterwards that I’d completely romanticized this image, and experience, of Angkor Wat in my head. So what if I hadn’t seen it at sunrise? I was still able to see one of the most beautiful landmarks in the world and enjoy it with the love of my life. The perfectionist in me let it go and I ended up having a wonderful day 💜
Have you had a time where you let go of something and ended up having an amazing time?
