Since 2019 I've wanted to go on a solo trip to Myanmar. I had everything planned already. My route: fly from Manila to Yangon then take an overnight bus to Bagan, then another overnight bus to Kalaw, then hike for two days to Inle Lake, then return to Yangon and fly back to Manila. The cost: around PHP 60,000 for a two-week trip. The dates: anytime from October to May, the country's dry season. The wardrobe: conservative and comfortable. 

But then COVID happened and, as if the situation in Myanmar couldn't get any worse, the military seized control of the country and chaos ensued. So Myanmar is definitely out of the question for now.

When this is all over, when the entire world reaches some approximation of normalcy, I will try to make plans again. I will travel once more. Maybe I'll go to Bolivia, or to Kazakhstan, or to Armenia. Maybe.
