I am a retired physician with an interest in travel and photography. My wife Amy and I have been given the ability to travel to 39 countries to meet people and to learn of their culture and history. This trip to Myanmar and Vietnam was recommended to us two years ago by Dr. Paula Swart Till, an expert in Asian history, culture, and language, and presenter during our National Geographic trip, “Around the world by Chartered Jet” in 2011-2012. We both agreed that this trip to Myanmar and Vietnam was unlike any we have taken in the past and provided us with a unique view of Myanmar, a country on the verge of becoming modernized, in contrast to Vietnam which has had four decades of foreign investment and post war development.
Come with us now as we immerse ourselves in the people, culture, and environment of Myanmar and Vietnam.
