When I discovered my love for experiencing new cultures and traveling the world I made a bucket list of the top 5 destinations I want to visit in my lifetime. Little did I know that God would bless me with the opportunity to cross my top two off within a year of making that list; one destination being Myanmar, my first solo trip. Located between Thailand and Bangladesh most foreigners know this country as "Burma" but to the locals it's known as the "Golden Land". This land is not just covered with golden pagodas, shrines, temples, and statues but it also has an overwhelming and rich culture that showered me with kindness, generosity, and hospitality. This is the true Myanmar; raw, natural beauty...The Golden Land. Enjoy.
