Bagan is a sleepy, dusty, temple-filled paradise in Myanmar.

Taking the bus from Yangon in the south to Bagan near the centre of Myanmar, I really had no idea what to expect. I'd seen some really fabulous photos on Google but never thought for a second that I'd be able to recreate them for myself.

Fortunately, I had three full days in the ancient city and did my best at trying to capture of the temples, pagodas, stupas and, of course, hot air balloons. It really was a magical place.

I'm disappointed that I didn't get to see more of Myanmar as, from what other travellers told me, the whole country is just waiting to be discovered. I'll just have to return!
