One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

We stayed in a buddhist temple in Thailand for 3 weeks and learned vipassana meditation. It was quite an experience: getting up at 4am, no talking, no reading, no music and the last meal at 11am. Besides meditation we've learned a lot about buddhism and how to be truly happy. This has changed our lives quite a bit.
