After seeing the sights in Yangon and making our pilgrimage to Golden Rock, we took an early flight to our next destination, Mandalay. The plane was surprisingly empty, and we wondered how many people who had been scheduled on our flight had been delayed getting back to Yangon from Golden Rock due to the traffic nightmare we had encountered the Continue Reading
After seeing the sights in Yangon, we left early one morning for our excursion to Golden Rock (or Kyaiktiyo) pagoda. Along the way we stopped off in Bago (formerly known as Pegu), founded in the sixth century, and which served as a capital city for both the Mon Kingdom and the Myanmar Empire during various periods from the 14th to Continue Reading
I spent the last two weeks of January exploring Myanmar (or Burma) again. There is something about this country that keeps drawing me back. This time I was pleased to share my travels with some other explorers.

In September, I did a post on packing for a 9 day trip to Spain and received a lot of comments and questions. So as I prepare to leave this week for a one month trip to SEAsia, including about 16 days in Myanmar and 12 days in Laos, it’s time to meet the challenge of packing as light as I Continue Reading
Happy New Year to everyone! Another year has flown by already? I always like to reflect back on a year gone by to see what I’ve accomplished and to savor my travel memories. As 2012 began, I had just begun to talk about the possibility of forming my own travel services company. Since I am always hearing…”do what you love”…it Continue Reading
New York is magical at this time of year! I love to wander the streets and feel the wonder of the Holidays. Since I live here, I take it for granted that everyone knows what New York has to offer until my out of town friends call and say: ”I’m coming to New York during the holidays…what should I do?” Continue Reading
I developed a strong fascination with the country of Myanmar when I made my first visit to the “Land of the Golden Pagoda” in April 2011 during my Round the World (RTW) trip. Many people ask me…where is Myanmar anyway? My answer: well, you may know it as Burma, it is in Southeast Asia, and it shares borders with Bangladesh, Continue Reading
I recently spent a few days in Barcelona, Spain, as an adjunct to attending the TBEX (Travel Bloggers Exchange) Conference in the town of Girona. It was a great walk down memory lane, as I had been to Barcelona in 1992 for the Olympic Games. I had an opportunity to revisit some of the same sights, as well as see some Continue Reading
While in Spain in September for the TBEX Conference in Girona (hosted by Costa Brava Pirineu de Girona), I stopped off in Barcelona for a few days to rediscover that city which I had last visited during the Barcelona1992 Olympic Games. At that time, I was enamored by Gaudi’s architecture, and so one of the things I arranged to do on Continue Reading
