Monkly Business in Myanmar
While visiting the most beautiful pagoda in Yangon I met a monk who changed my mind about travel to the nation formerly known as Burma. The question is not whether to travel or not, but how to travel and why.
An Elephant in my Tuk Tuk
After a decade of journeys through South-East Asia and countless encounters with elephants in the jungles of Thailand the question of whether tourism is good for these graceful creatures is still an important one. Exploring the culture of elephants in Thailand makes for a wonderful journey, and if you chose with care, your travel dollar can greatly improve the lives of the elephants as well.
