This time last week, I was cycling through the dusty roads of the Bagan Archeological Zone and shouting, “Can you believe this place???” because I have never been in such close proximity to so many ancient pagodas and crumbling stuppas. I’m still having trouble believing that we climbed through temples with our hands and bare feet, swam in the Irrawaddy river, befriended the locals of Myinhaba village, and did all the amazing things we did. It’s like something out of a indie road trip movie about friendship and self-discovery and maybe romance on the road.
To remind myself that all of this was real, and that we had the best time of our lives in this historic little town, I made a video of our adventures in Bagan. How can I go back to traveling alone when traveling with friends can be this much fun?
