Bagan Temples, Myanmar

Friendship Gift Postcard, Sender: My twin, Wan
Sent from Myanmar, Sent on August 2012
Received on September 2012, Traveled ~2664 km

I have two inspirations for sharing this postcard. First, I was with my twin, Wan, last week for the Holy Week vacation. We were talking about his trip to Myanmar and I was really hoping I was with him...I could have seen these majestic ancient temples...

Second, I was browsing the Instagram profile of a former officemate who loves to travel. I'm an avid follower of her travel adventures via her insta posts. Yesterday, I had some downtime and I ventured into her blogger page: I was greeted with a post about Myanmar. And the cover photo on her page, the Bagan temples! And so I excitedly dug up this postcard from my albums. :-)

The Bagan temples are found in the middle of Myanmar, the Mandalay Region. They're formerly known as Pagan. The fewer temples and pagodas surviving today are the remains of about 10,000 from the 11th and 13th centuries. 

Sharing this with Beth for the Postcard Friendship Friday.

Happy weekend everyone!



  1. It is hard to imagine 10,000 of these beautiful, intricate temples.

  2. Lovely card and sounds like a perfect vacation.

  3. You have a twin?! How wonderful. There are twins in my family--they skip every generation. My sister had twin girls. (grin)

    What a beautiful sight.

    Happy PFF, my dear!

    1. Hi Beth,

      He's not really, uhm... a real twin. Sorry for the confusion.
