We are thrilled and excited to announce our newest adventure, a 10-day excursion to Myanmar and Thailand, a once-in-a-lifetime trip to two of the most spiritual, tumultuous, arresting countries on Earth. And we get to do it with our friends at Belmond, who are among the greatest luxury brands today. The editors here will have a chance to experience Belmond’s luxurious river cruiser through Mandalay Bay, their five-star accommodations —  the Belmond Governor’s Residence in the Dagon Township — and to be part of an ancient civilization.

In the days to come get ready for posts here for how I’m preparing for this trip and then the trip itself. Also check out Instagram and Facebook feeds for photos, thoughts, impressions and recommendations.

We also invite you to comment and post with any questions or comments you may have. Feel free to leave a comment on our Facebook page. We’d love to hear your impressions. We are excited about trip and we plan on writing it up in a future issue of the magazine but the more we know what you are interested in, the better and more focused our coverage will be.

We’ll begin our adventure in Bangkok where we’ll stay at the towering Mandarin Oriental overlooking the seemingly endless
