Jing’An Temple – 静安寺 in Shanghai,China

In the middle of the city, you can find the beautiful Buddhist Jing An Temple shinning its gold color and charming architecture.
First built in 247 AD its most recent reconstruction was in 1880.
When you walk through the main entrance the view is undeniably breathtaking, there is a vibe in the air mixed with the temple arrangement that just feels good to be enjoyed.
Right in the middle, you will see a pagoda brazier where you can throw a coin(or many) and if it gets inside is believed to bring you good luck.
One of my favorite things about Buddhist temples are the extremely detailed ceilings and roof paintings, don’t forget to look up and appreciate them.

My Destiny

The double sense title is signed in our souls.It seems like we always knew that our hearts follow the sun.
My name is Jeane and the photographer/cameraman/cute boy of our blog and youtube channel is my husband Diego.
We travel around the world due our jobs for the last 8 years and it came to our mind that only a few pictures didn’t show the real beauty of our path to our family.Then the urge to give them a piece of heaven made us start brainstorming about this project.
With the time you will get to know me better and will see that I’m sure a perfectionist and don’t rest until everything is detailed planned, then it occurred me that a lot of people could benefit from my schedules, routes, addresses and it all.
So we decide to begin this new journey “My destiny” where we share our lifestyle, trips, and hobbies. Here you can find travel advice and then when everything is ready you can just go and feel that there is where you belong (many times in many different places) and then share your experience with us!
Welcome on board!
