    You're right. Though everyone there referred to it as Burma, very confusing for the likes of me when trying to be right on! :razz:

    It is a really, really interesting/weird place. We only stayed for a couple of days as the reason we went was to celebrate the Full Moon of Kason festival and even maybe that was a bit ill-advised. I remember the day before we headed off we were hearing all these tales of rebels storming villages to kill locals who were fleeing all over the country. So yeah, we were a bit freaked out by being the only travellers around.

    I don't remember a lot other than the festival which involved a lot of eating and music... as the only other things we did were visit the Mingun bell which we were told was their version of the Statue of Liberty (it was friggin' enormous) and sit around in the back of a disused truck chewing kundhi wrapped in banana leaves. Cue a strange kind of buzz that only effected half of your body, and spitting red goop onto the floor every ten seconds. Cultured!

    The most memorable thing I took away from the experience was the knowledge that the men there were absolutely riveted by anything digital or vaguely female looking. They all had these completely retro Casio digital watches which they thought were the shit :D When I showed them my pictures from Thailand on my DIGITAL camera I thought they were going to explode from excitement amidst all their "HEE HAW"ing and rubbing of our legs like they were trying to start a fire. Strange, strange country.

    Indeed, I've wanted to go to Laos for ages, but I just dont have the funds unfortunatley. Myanmar seems a little rough and ready for me, although having negotiated my way through Jo'Burg it cant be that much more dangerous.

    Switzerland

    That's about it, but I'm making up for lost time, off to Prague on Wednesday :yes: then HK/Phillipines end of March....if I can't get moved to the Australia office I'll probably pack in this 9-5 malarky after Glastonbury, disappear for a few years and see where I end up.....

    Ohh i've been there as well.

    Part of the reason why i've been so many places is that my dad lived abroad for quite a lot of the time I was growing up - therefore we normally had holidays based on where he was working/had a meeting etc etc - that and the fact that i'm kind of obsessed by going on holiday - I have to leave the country once ever two months otherwise I go into some weird depressive state that i'm going to get stuck here forever.

    Yep I thought that too. Or I am thinking you have high flying careers where you can book fortnights of every like 3 months.

    I have only been to spain twice with the parents and Greece once. Probably going back to Greece again too this year but then that will be it, then I will have to fund my own holidays :no: :(
