Bagan, Myanmar. February 1, 2017
I struggle to type due to the limited mobility of my left arm. This should contribute brevity to what I am about to say.
This trip is about getting out my comfort zone, which I’ve accomplished in both large and small ways.
A handful of my latest adventures: Riding a bicycle for the first time in 17 years. Meeting and hanging out with strangers (without booze even!). Hiking a gorgeous island mountain. Kayaking the Thai sea with a new friend.
But riding a motorbike was not on the list.
It seemed too dangerous, especially for someone just getting reacquainted with a regular old bicycle. Yet, if you want to see pagodas in Bagan, renting an e-bike is the only way to get around.
