My favourite destinations in Myanmar/Burma

Yangon, Myanmar

I have traveled to Myanmar twice in the past five years and this country lies so close to my heart. Spending over three months in Myanmar I could not get enough of it.

Where is Myanmar?

Myanmar is a Southeast Asian nation situated between the countries of China to the north, Thailand to the East, Bangladesh and India to the west. Myanmar is home to many languages, but Burmese is the most widely spoken and understood language of the nation. Myanmar’s capital city ‘Yangon’, located near the southern coast is a complex blend of Myanmar’s people, being a mix of Bamar, Indian, and many other tribal/minority groups. The population of Myanmar is around 53 million and makes it one of Southeast Asia’s greatest diversities of ethnic groups. Travel to Myanmar and you will be rewarded with one of Southeast Asia’s best kept secrets. Myanmar has been closed to foreigners for many years, but has recently opened its land borders and remote locations. Read More

Photo of the week: Nagaland, India

While attending the annual Hornbill Festival in Kohima Nagaland, I was trying to photograph a certain dance performance that involved large firearms, when I noticed this man with his smart phone taking selfies and photos of other’s. I love this photo because of the stark contrast it resembles of old and new. Old being the outfit this man is wearing is a traditional war regalia his clan has worn for over a thousand years and new being how he whipped his smartphone out just like anyone would from the west to capture this amazing moment.

Libya Travel Guide

Libya Uncharted Backpacker

Why Travel To Libya?

Ask anyone in the travel world about Libya and you will get a blank stare. It is best known for the terrible conflicts that have occurred over the past few years, but in fact, it has the potential to become one of Africa’s and the Sahara’s greatest travel destinations. Imagine the largest ancient Roman ruins. Lost Saharan Cities. It has some of the most picturesque oasis and largest sand dunes in the world. It also has a rich culture which Libyan people take great pride in. As of now Libya is not the easiest country to get to as they often close their borders, make visa’s impossible to get and spurts of violence occur too often for comfort. But if you decide to head to Libya you will be rewarded with having the entire country to yourself and every curious local willing to help you see and experience this amazing place. Read More
