Spiritual and physical exploration, Myanmar - Nov 20 - Nov 29, 2018

Traveler: Lexi C. - Local specialist: Anne Cruickshanks

This review will inevitably be too short to capture the brilliance and splendor of Myanmar -- both its people and its places. My guides: Minthu, Thinzar, and Wai were all fantastic. Anne, owner of Myanmar Pure and all-around amazing human, used my input to handcraft a one of a kind spiritual and physical journey that had me interacting with locals, cooking meals, watching handmade crafts be made, and involved planes, trains, automobiles, e-bikes (think vespa), and boats. I met local fortune tellers and got a traditional tattoo. I took in the wonders of Old Bagan and the radiance of Inn Lay lake. I meditated for 20 minutes in a small crawlspace within the Pindaya Cave. Overall, this will forever be my favorite trip, partially because it is the trip of a lifetime, but partially because my guides and the local people made it so effortlessly special. THANK YOU.
