Doors: Southeast Asia

Doors and their ways.

What do you think before opening a door and crossing through a doorway? Nothing? Watching your head? Wondering what’s on the other side? Something superstitious? I try not to be superstitious, it’s bad luck. 😉

Often, I view traveling, and its benefits, as a doorway. A doorway to a fuller, happier life; to open mindedness; to a brighter future; to obtaining knowledge; to new experiences; to sincere friendships; to meaningfulness; to new beginnings; to opportunities to consume the thrills and wonders of life. As an escape for some. A new journey, a new adventure, a new experience for others.
