At sunrise on our sixth day in Burma, (That’s right – we’re only half way through our amazing trip, folks.) we boarded a hot-air balloon and got a different view of the temples in the Bagan area. Our guide explains that it’s well known when the 1,500+ temples were built, but that it’s not clear exactly why they were built in this spot. What a sight!
Kelly completely overcame her fear of heights and thoroughly enjoyed the balloon ride. Her only wish is that the flight had gone on longer. In my next post, I’ll show why the unplanned can turn out to be the most memorable part of any trip.
