In the 20 years that we have travelled in South East Asia, we have dreamed about the time we would visit the mysterious and authentic Myanmar.
In excitement, we could hardly sleep a wink the night before the day we arrived in Myanmar. But soon we would find we would have an adventure of a lifetime and visit one of our favourite countries in the world.
I had heard of the mystical road to Mandalay, ever since I was a child. I had a strong desire to see this spiritual, magical country. As the years passed, along with many aspirations to travel to many different lands, I forgot the yearning until I started travelling in Asia in my 20s.
I fell in love with Asia the first time I went there. We started a long and magnetic relationship, and I could never stay away for too long.
We first visited Koh Tao, Thailand in 2007. We found a backpacker paradise lined with bungalows on the beach. Back then, luxury resorts were minimal, the roads were uncrowded, and everything was so much cheaper.
Greetings from Southern Thailand, we are going to be kicking back here slow travel for the next few months. As it’s the Tropics, anything can happen! And the problem with finding a Tropical Paradise? We never want to leave!
