The plan

In January 2016 I am planning a bike trip through Myanmar (Burma) with my brother Nick. I have not really travelled in this part of the world before, but always wanted to, and am quite fascinated by Myanmar. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be visiting as the recent election have swept the National League for Democracy (NLD) to power after many decades of military rule.

The initial plan is to ride along the Western bank of the Ayerawady river from Yangon to Mandalay (see map below). Apart from the first few days this is off the beaten track and will be pretty rural.

Never written a blog before, but thought it would be a good way to record everything about the planning and things that I learn about Burma and it’s people along the way, and ultimately the trip itself and the adventures we have…
