The Story Behind the Photo

 

There are no ordinary days for the adventurous geocaching duo “Chiliconsushi.” The couple spends their free time geocaching all over the world together, 30 different countries so far. They document their travels through photography, a personal blog, and detailed geocache logs. Out of their nearly 2,000 finds, GC41D89 in Laos is one of their most memorable. Here is the story behind the incredible photo they took at the geocache location.

“This cache is in Luang Prabang. We left the touristy places in order to reach this geocache. What we found was unexpected… a temple right in the middle of a rural area surrounded by the forest. The place was peaceful and quiet. At GZ (ground zero) we started searching under the stare of some young monks. One of them walked toward us but didn’t say anything. He grabbed the tip of a “temple-like” construction, put his hand in the hole and there was the geocache…the scene was unreal. We felt like adventurers, lost in the jungle, reaching a grail. After signing the logbook we gave it back to the young monk, we bowed to them, smiled and left trying to believe what just happened,” Chiliconsushi.
