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

Sunset in Bagan
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!

Friendship Friday!

Hello dear friends in Blogland. How are you doing? I am pleased to be here for Friendship Friday
I've had a great week and have well and truly settled back into my Asian life  where I am enjoying making new friends both locally and in here in the blogosphere.


I've had fun, I have joined a new group - the American Women's Club of Thailand.
Why the American's when you're a British Aussie? You may well ask. Well firstly they take anyone, these Expat women's groups really are not that fussy!

Well, except for the ANZWG Group where you need to be closely associated with Australia and New Zealand. I am, I have the passport and I have a family, home and of course an Aussie Crazy Poodle Down Under and I miss my Melbourne life terribly,  but my life in Thailand is more about meeting women from around the globe.

I have always had lots of American friends, I chat with many Americans via my blog...

... anyway they let this little bird in and she's chirpy about that!

The Expat - an A to Z of how not to make friends.

Ok, so I have now officially disgraced myself with the Americans…
A little bit of backstory, I moved to Bangkok eighteen months ago. It was a tricky move coming from the eight times winner of the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ Melbourne, Australia to one of the most polluted, congested and the world’s hottest capital city… I gave up a meaningful job that I loved, in the Not-for-Profit sector to become a lady of leisure.

I threw myself into life here. I enjoyed the travel and getting to know Bangkok, and we had loads of visitors, but this year everything changed when we moved into our forever place in Bangkok. Hated it, nothing worked, was miserable, so had a great summer traveling the globe visiting family and friends instead.


Back in Bangkok, ready to immerse back into my Thai life, I am moving into a new apartment and ready to make some new friends, I joined a few expat organisations…
I know, I know being an Expat sounds glamorous, we have left the homeland, or in my case homelands, and j…

The Last Rose Of Summer

I spotted this poppet of a pink rose against the crumbling English church wall this week. It reminded me of the song 'The Last Rose of Summer':
'Tis the last rose of summer left blooming alone. All her lovely companions are faded and gone.' Thomas Moore
Quite how this melancholy song slipped into our normally upbeat,  think 'My old man said follow the van', family singalongs, I don't know.  But since then, I've always looked for my last rose of summer!


The last rose of Summer got me thinking how Winter has well and truly appeared in the United Kingdom. She slipped in unannounced after an endless summer. On the back of the gritter lorries, with witty names like Grittie McVittie, Brad Grit, or Spready Mercury, busy throwing salt to stop roads freezing over. 


Wren's thought for the day: There is a stoic cheerfulness here despite a gloomy outlook in more ways than one... Brexit remains a monumental looming moment in British history but it’s anyone’s guess how t…
