I inherited my adventurous spirit and insatiable curiosity from my mother. The fact that she's in her seventies, hasn't stopped her from visiting the places that spark her interest. Which is how we found ourselves touring the sights of Myanmar over the 2015 Christmas holidays. Our trip was way too short, only 10 days long, I think we both fell in love with the people we met and the stories we heard, and have no choice but to go back.
Places visited: Yangon, Bago, Twante, Bagan and Mandalay
Must sees: Shwedagon Paya at dusk, Bagan from a hot air balloon at sunrise, The Mustache Brothers show in Mandalay, afternoon tea at any of the local teahouses, and a day trip to the pottery village of Twante without a guide (the fun is negotiating directions with the locals).
