February 21st - March 2nd, 2014. (MYANMAR, Bagan)
Wonderful to revisit Burma (Myanmar) again since they are no longer under military rule. Flew from Bangkok straight to Mandalay and then boated to Bagan. The 8 hour boat ride took 32 hours as we ended up grounded due to low water in the middle of the river overnight. Loved Bagan and stayed there for over a week and saw the magnificent Valley of Temples with several thousand abandoned temples dotting the valley. The people were the nicest people that I have met ANYWHERE in the world. They honestly wanted to help you and it was not money motivated.
