As mentioned in my bucket list travel list – I loved my visit to Bhutan and it would be an absolute dream to return with my family (and Long) someday. This magical kingdom (literally a kingdom) is notable for pioneering the concept of gross national happiness (GNH). Amen to that! In South Asia, Bhutan ranks first in economic freedom, ease of doing business and peace; second in per capita income and is the least corrupt country, as of 2016. (via Wikipedia) Holla! When I visited they had no traffic lights because they felt they were impersonal. So there was legit a dude standing in the middle of the city directing traffic.
and beautiful prayer flags everywhere. yes, please.
sweet shades alert!
And as previously mentioned in pretty much every post, I’m a big believer in signs and the wacky universe working in strange and magical ways.
I sent CBC postcard from Bhutan way back when (maybe 15 years ago) – so long ago his nickname was Munky at this point (we are talkin’ pre-horseface) I thought I was quite clever looping in a monk(y) . . . I digress.
Check out the stamp . . .
What are the chances that the postage from Bhutan to NYC be a french bulldog? Bizarro and makes me so warm & fuzzy inside.
Happy Frenchie Friday!
And happy happy weekend. May you measure it and all your days to come in gross personal happiness, Bhutanese style
