Throw Back Week – October Break 2013 in Myanmar

This was also a long awaited trip but for different reason than the India Trip. We had planned to go to visit Myanmar during our first posting in China, we had started to plan but there were starting to be some unrest in the country and the local office of my husband company advise us to maybe wait and see then the Saffron Revolution happened so it was a good call. Other trips were then schedule and when we left beijing in 2009 we didn’t managed to squeeze it in. So many places to visit so little time. So when we got posted a second time to Beijing Myanmar was the first trip on our list.

At the time I had just started this little blog and I thought I was only going to post about the quirky little things about life in Beijing so unfortunately I only posted a few pictures (a couple months later actually) but nonetheless it will give you a general impression of this amazing country: https://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/c&jMyanmar/chrono

PS: I got so much better at journaling our future trips, giving more of a story telling then just showing pictures. None of the behind the scene and what made this trip so unique (hand written plane ticket, boarding number on an actual board on a stick, our a transfer to our hotel in inlet lake on a piroge boat and so so much more) made it to the blog :-(.

Just an reminder: Inspired by the Throw Back Thursday of our summer vacation I did in July and August and since we cannot travel again during this October Break, I’ve decided to revisit the idea with a Throw Back Week of our trips around Asia during school vacation for the past 6 years. It’s not because we cannot physically travel that we cannot at least escape in our head.  Enjoy the others it’s a chance to discover old postings 😉
