Journey As Destination

Posted by on April 18, 2011

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.”

 

I don’t recall any country I’ve been to that embodies this quote quite as much as Myanmar.  Myanmar: the country where it takes forever to get there, but at least you have some fun on the way!

The government, restrictive as it is, restricts foreign travel on a lot of the roads through the country, especially in border areas.  The first place I tried to go after leaving Yangon is one of these places.  After trying from four different cities to get a bus to Mrak U, I finally gave up and headed up to Bagan.  Somewhere during the course of that effort, though, I realized that strange but interesting things kept happening on all these rides.

So, over the next few days: “Journey as Destination.”
