The Golden Land, travels through Burma
The Golden Land
This week I’m doing something a little bit different here on Vagabond Baker: a week of posts dedicated to our travels in Burma.
Each day, beginning tomorrow, I will take you along our ten day journey through Myanmar: from Yangon to Mandalay by train and by bus.
A land of glittering temples, extraordinary landscapes, wonderful people and a unique culture; I hope to show you show you what an incredible country Myanmar/Burma is through photographs and experiences.
As a taster of what’s to come, here is a short video– a trailer, if you will, for this special week of posts.
As you can see, it’s a magical place; I have lots of stories to tell as well as many photos to share.
In this coming week there’ll be unique train journeys; more gold than you could possibly imagine; thousands of stupas; colonial architecture; a fascinating culture; iconic fishermen; and cats.
I hope you enjoy this week, something a little different!
