I usually find that, if asked, I can ramble on and on about each of my trips for days on end.
But for some reason, with Myanmar it’s different. My experience there is difficult to put into words.
If you’ve been following along over the past few months, you probably know my husband and I traveled to Myanmar at the end of December / beginning of January to volunteer with a network of orphanages. The children were beautiful, loving, and full of energy and helped make our trip to Myanmar one of our most treasured travel experiences to date. We enjoyed our time in Myanmar so much that we have (tentative) plans to return next year. It is my hope that over the coming months I can find the appropriate words to reflect upon this trip and share more with you all about why it was so special. But for now, my words fail. My emotions overwhelm.
Because words cannot adequately describe how much I appreciated this trip, I decided to conclude my coverage from our time in Myanmar by sharing a few of my favorite images from the trip. Enjoy!
