The Burma files:
Christen and I bought a one way pass on the ancient Burmese railway from the hill station of Maymyo in December on a lark. We bounced up and down the hard seats for the day, and its a wonder the train didn’t fall off the tracks, but in return, we were rewarded with incredible once in a lifetime views.
A highlight was the Goteik viaduct - a man-made structure that shouldn’t be safe to travel across but somehow still is standing after all these years.
As a traveler, nothing really beats the view and experience from a train.
