Our 15 Day Myanmar adventure

We loved our holiday in Myanmar. 
Here is the itinerary put together for us by our Travel Agent. 
We took 5 internal flights; Myanmar is surprisingly large, three times the size of Great Britain. 
You will note we had lots of early starts and so we really enjoyed the three days relaxing at Ngapali Beach. 
Our absolute highlights were Bagan and Inle Lake.



Feb 6th: Arrival Yangon. An evening visit to the famous Shwedagon Pagoda

Sunset at the Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon
Feb 7th: Yangon sightseeing

Tri shaw ride in Yangon
Feb 8th: Yangon-Bagan (Flight 06:20/07:40 am) Bagan Sightseeing

Feb 9th: Bagan sightseeing by bike


Feb 10th: A visit to Mt Popa & Evening sunset boat ride along the Ayeyarwaddy River


Feb 11: Bagan - Mandalay (07:35/08:05 am) Sightseeing Mandalay


Feb 12: Visit Amapura, Sagaing & Inwa


Feb 13: Boat trip to Mingun


Feb 14: Mandalay HeHo (09.30/10:30) Inle Lake sightseeing by boat

Inle Lake
Feb 15: A visit to Indein village


Feb 16: Heho - Thande (09:30/10:30 am) Transfer to Ngapali Beach


Feb 17: Ngapail Beach


Feb 18: Ngapali Beach


Feb 19: Thande-Yangon (13:45/14:35 am) cocktails & dinner at Strand Hotel

Feb 20: Yangon sightseeing, Lunch at the Governors Residence Afternoon transfer to airport for departure.

If time was short we'd reduce our time in Mandalay and/or we would have loved to have done the two-three day trek into Inle Lake. However as by this time some of us were sick, so maybe we were better off in smart hotels with nice bathrooms!

Anyone for Tennis?

At the Australian Open qualifying tournament... 

Are you ready for the first Grand Slam of the year? The Aus Open starts next week (Monday 13th - Sunday 26 January) but Melbourne is already in full swing (ha ha) with tennis players and tennis action. 


You can pay to watch some of the top seeded Men's players in action at the Kooyong Classic, just down the road. Or, you can join me for what I say is one of the best value tennis, indeed let's say sporting tickets in the world. The Australian Open qualifying tournament (Jan 8 -11), where you can wander in for free. Yes free!

The 'Qualies' is one of the secret treasures of the Aus Open where players compete and must win matches on three consecutive days to secure one of the last remaining spots in the main draw.
For the past seven years we have been a host family for tennis players, which is how we have become so familiar with the highs and lows of this lead up event... 
So would you like a sneak peak inside Melbourne Park, whi…

Bangkok Blogger

Life is not about finding ourselves it is about creating ourselves! George Bernard Shaw

Cooee! It's me calling in from Thailand. Sorry, it's been a while, it's been a tad busy. Still, we've not done badly. We've moved into our temporary apartment and are well on the way to finding something more permanent. We're overlooking the American Embassy compound, which is acres of impressive greenery in amongst the high rise buildings. I love it, I can even hear the little birds sing in the morning.
So welcome to my new life as .... drum roll please, Hmmm actually, I have no bleedin’ idea, so how about Bangkok Blogger for now?
How would you feel if you were to arriving in a new country, where you know no-one, and you're not even sure what your life will entail? For me, it was a feeling of excitement, crossed with a rolling of the eyes, a smile and my 'here we go again' expression. 
Of course, this always happens Mr Wren was away travelling and so I rocked up for …

Life at Embassy Place.

We're on the move again, just call me Gypsy Wren!
We took a decision when we arrived in Bangkok to take a short-term lease at Embassy Place Apartments. We couldn’t stay longer because the place will be bulldozed to make way for a new high rise development. This week we said goodbye!


But as moving is what we do, and it seemed like half a plan to take this bigger, better and cheaper apartment, even with the hassle of moving out...
In the dizzy excitement of Bangkok apartment hunting, we knew the moment we walked up the drive, that this was the one we could happily call home. 
Come visit with me and see what you think...

I have been blessed to have lived in some of the world's most wonderful cities; Hong Kong, Brussels, and Melbourne but I'm a country girl at heart, I can’t live feeling hemmed in. 
I like the frenetic pace of life in these big cities, but I do need a retreat, a place of Zen calm.

I need to see light, have space and hear a decent dawn chorus. If I don't wake up t…
