About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Kathmandu, Nepal {Buddhist Temples and Stupas}

The first 2 pictures are paintings done by monks which explain the life of Buddha and the Path to Enlightenment. I purchased the first one and the pictures do not show the meticulous detail. The rest of the pictures are of Buddhist Temples, Stupas and Prayer Wheels. The Bodhnath Stupa is the one pictured. A Stupa is a sacred Buddhist shrine. The Prayer Wheels contain a piece of scriptural writing and are activated by spinning them clockwise, which causes the prayer inside to revolve.
