Gasp! Each November the city of Chiang Mai in Thailand transforms into the most mesmerizing lantern festival called yi peng (second full moon). It’s believed that by releasing a lantern into the air you are also getting rid of all your worries and problems. It symbolizes the new beginning. This year the festival will take place between 15th and 18th of November. I’m totally gobsmacked by it all! Just imagine seeing it in person - swoon! xo
P.S: Midsummer night in Poland.
P.P.S: And the lantern floating ceremony in Hawaii.
