My Freshest Work
The Tazaungdaing Fire Balloon Festival (Festival of Lights) had such a reputation that I avoided going for years. Now, each year... I can't stay away from the awe-inspiring madness and beauty.
Read all about what the festival is about, and how to see it for yourself.
Five years in the making. One year of planning. 13 days of stories and adventures on one remarkable journey.
On those first trips I made to Myanmar more than 5 years ago, I remember thinking to myself, "Maybe if I don't write about the things here, I can have all of this for myself."
The feeling was fleeting, and since then I've always been interested in sharing the magic of the country, through my documentary work "This Myanmar Life," my photography, my writing, and my talks. After the first Un-Tour to Myanmar in October 2016, I knew I was on to something special.
Below is a small selection of what we experienced together, and a few snippets I published along the way (live to Instagram).
I hear from so many travelers to Myanmar who want to make sure that their money goes to the people, and not to the government or croonies. In the past few years, there has been a big boom in creative social enterprises in Myanmar, and I wanted to shine a light on them. Find the best places to spend your money and make the biggest difference.
The old British hill station village of Kalaw is easily one of my favorite places in Myanmar. While seen as most as just the place to start the very popular Kalaw-to-Inle trek, it's so much more than that.
The cool mountain air, mixed with the beautiful pine forests and a relatively mellow vibe make for a great stop on your Myanmar adventure. The biggest mistake people make in coming here is that most only stay for a single night.
