Myanmar has many many things to offer, especially when you travel on your own, away from the big hot spots and tour groups. So we decided to rent motorbikes and do our own tour, to get some first hand impressions of the country, people and small villages. We met a very friendly guy in Mandalay and rented some 125cc bikes (more like scooters^^) from him for around 10$ a day.

My second featured blogger this week is @maracuja, a language ner and world explorer from Ireland. For some reasons she thinks she is a bad cook and perpetually confused, too.

Featured Post: How I fell on my face and learned about life: A personal essay.

I had the worst accident of my life 6000 miles away from home, on my own. And I kept going. I wrote this essay to describe what happened and how it changed my outlook on life. Last September I flew from my home in Ireland to Shanghai to study Chinese for a year. In the beginning, it was incredibly difficult. I was struggling with the local bureaucracy, the language, the customs, and a very deep loneliness. I couldn’t wait for the Chinese New Year holidays in January, when I could go traveling. Everything was working up to those 5 weeks.
