Yangon touchdown

What a delightful feeling to be finally flying into Myanmar…

Coming in to land at Yangon

The sun is shining.

It isn’t too hot.

We’ve had a few hours rest in the Singapore Changi Aerotel.

Flights were great.

Our bags arrived safely after being booked through all the way from Coolangatta.

We were met at the airport by our smiling local contact – Yin.

The Winner Inn hotel room is simple yet comfy.

The hotel staff are super friendly.

We are now off to find an ATM and explore our neighbourhood.

Everything feels right!

    Hey Sonia & Gordon, great to hear from you so soon. Yangon countryside looks very green & township more modern than what I imagined. Did you travel with other volunteers or meeting up with others there? Go, explore & report back. xxx
