They say there is no better luck than working on something that makes you happy. Although throughout my life I have not been able to complain about the work that I have had and of all I have taken something positive, the truth is that at the moment I am enjoying a lot: being Travel guide in Myanmar.

Myanmar is a wonderful country, full of spectacular people and beautiful landscapes mixed with stunning archeological sites.

I've been going through it for 4 seasons now and the truth is that I don't get tired of returning every season. My pending subject is still to learn some Burmese, but the truth is that life does not give me more and I never find the time to devote to that subject.

Among the best places to see in Myanmar, you cannot miss the following:

1. Bagan

They call it the city of 4,000 pagodas, but it is known that there are many more, hiding under mounds of land or vegetation.

Bagan, the Burmese Angkor Wat, began to forge in the eleventh century, when the great king Anawratha decided to convert to Buddhism, and, as used to happen in those times, all his people with him. When embracing the new religion, a feverish construction of pagodas, temples and stupas began (don't ask me to explain the differences between them, because it remains unclear). His successors took the legacy and tried to overcome it.

Construction techniques improved and monumental temples were erected and somewhat more resistant to the frequent earthquakes that still ravage the region today.
