THE ROCK TEMPLE STORY

 
 

 

HERE

IS

THE

STORY

----

ON A VERY HOT MORNING IN SRI LANKA, I CLIMBED 600 STEPS TO GET TO THE TOP OF MULKRIGALA ROCK TEMPLE, WHERE I RECEIVED A SPECIAL BLESSING FROM A MONK. 🙏🏼

AFTER THE 600 STEP CLIMB DOWN FROM THE TEMPLE, I MET THE COOLEST COCONUT MAN, WHO SERVED ME THE MOST REFRESHING COCONUT WATER I HAVE EVER TASTED. (GOAT STATUS.) BEFORE I LEFT HE SLICED THE COCONUT OPEN SO I COULD EAT THE MEAT. (SIDENOTE: DID YOU KNOW THAT COCONUT MEAT BOOSTS YOUR METABOLISM & HELPS BUILD LEAN MUSCLE?) 🆒

AS I WAS WALKING OUT WITH THE COCONUT IN MY HAND, I WAS TOLD TO COVER THE COCONUT WITH MY SCARF SO THAT THE FAMILY OF MONKEYS WOULDN’T TRY AND ATTACK ME TO GET IN ON SOME OF THAT COCO MEAT. 🐒

ONCE IN THE TUK TUK, I USED THE COCONUT SCOOP TO EAT THE COCONUT MEAT. YOU CAN'T GET MUCH MORE SUSTAINABLY SOURCED THAN THAT SPOON. I WAS THANKFUL THAT I CARRIED THE TOXIN-FREE URSA MAJOR WIPES IN MY BAG AT ALL TIMES BECAUSE I HAD NEVER BEEN SO SWEATY & THE TEMPLE BATHROOM WAS NOT V LUXE..MORE OF A HOLE IN THE GROUND SITUATION. THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF MY CLEAN + DIRTY TRAVEL MANTRA IN ACTION. ðŸ‘ðŸ¼

IT THEN BEGAN TO DOWNPOUR. 💦

WE PASSED BY A SCHOOL AND THE YOUNG GIRLS, CAUGHT IN THE RAIN, WERE HUDDLED TOGETHER UNDER PALM TRESS. DESPITE THE RAIN DROPS, THEY WERE ALL SMILING, LAUGHING AND WAVING AS I PASSED BY. 👋🏽

JUST A REMINDER: LIFE IS A BLESSING! BE GRATEFUL.

(AND ALWAYS CARRY URSA MAJOR WIPES IN YOUR BAG WHEN TRAVELING.)
