In the end the Moai of Easter Island during sunset is one of my favorite shots..

The city of Görlitz is one of those quintissential German cities filled with lots of history. It lies along the Neisse River, stradling the border with Poland.

Destination 2013: Myanmar ± Sri Lanka

  4 years ago     225 Views     Comments Off on Destination 2013: Myanmar ± Sri Lanka  

After much debating and finally resiging to the fact that the previously planned trip to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro was going to be too expensive, I have begun to think about where exactly too go. In all of my research, Myanmar seems to be the "it" place right now, so I have made the decision that this will likely be the next big trip. I have already applied for and been approved for vacation time for the month of November, now all that I have to do is start looking at flights. At the moment, flights from MSP to Bangkok are…
