I left my hometown for an unknown future 6 months ago but it feels like yesterday. My initial plan was to explore, learn, eat and have some sort of schedule that would give me enough time to edit my videos, photos and write silly posts here, but I haven’t found the right balance yet. Usually, I take pictures and videos for at least 2-3 weeks and upload everything on my website. Whereas, I should share my experience more regularly and post a bit more often instead of spamming my friends with tonnes of pictures once or twice a month.
After visiting Myanmar for 2 weeks, it was time to explore more temples. Little did I know it was going to be 10000C° during the day. Therefore, to be able to visit Angkor Wat, I woke up every morning way too early, headed to the usual photography spot and waited with hundreds of other tourists patiently to see the sunrise.
Inle Lake was my last destination in Myanmar. And after waking up almost every morning before sunrise, I was slightly exhausted. So I decided to take it easy for the last couple of days. My plan was to ride a bicycle around the lake and drink some average Burmese wine.
The biggest advantage of this lifestyle is the freedom. Not to have to rush and go back to work on Monday, to take my time and to plan only for the next 3 days. Also, there is no better place than in SE Asia to do that. That was exactly what I thought before I started travelling.
Before travelling to Myanmar, the only place I wanted to see was Bagan. So the hype was high for this place. I knew I was going to wake up every morning and go on top of a temple way before sunrise to try to take a classic Bagan picture, the one with the hot air balloon over the temples and pagodas.
