Taiwan Day 1: Flying

Man am I regretting the show last night, the food or water has given me a serious case of the “delhi belly”. Great timing with the flight today to Taiwan. I decide my best course of action is to just fast and let my system work it out. It took us longer to pack than…

Myanmar Day 12: Yangon

Today is our last full day in Yangon. We didn’t really have a plan so much, and we weren’t sure there was enough worth doing. But with Jenn still sick, we didn’t want to have much on our plate. She seems to have turned a corner. We have breakfast at our hotel on the 9th…

Myanmar Day 11: Return

Today our cruise ends, and our trip is now a long road home with a few stops along the way. We don’t have any big items on the list we’ll be hitting, mostly just filling days with miscellaneous activities, and lots of flights broken up taking us home. These journals are going to get necessarily…

Myanmar Day 8: Dinghy

Jenn was sick all night with stomach problems. We’re not sure what exactly caused it. She has sharp pains and a feeling of bad heart burn with a bit of nausea. It sounds like food poisoning a bit too me, but we all for the most part have eaten the same things. Perhaps it was…

Myanmar Day 7: Islands

With first light we’re up and boy are we greeted with a beautiful sight. The island we’re anchored at has two white sand beaches separated by a rocky outcropping. Sara and Jonathan have already taken one of the kayaks already and have it on the northern beach. Jenn and I suit up and grab the…
