To Burma by land
An seasoned sailor, Jim Woods was fortunate enough to lead one of these first voyages to Burma. "It' s astonishing when you come to Burma from China - the changes are immediate - in terms of eating, clothing and lifestyle in general. Other companies made goods from recycling metals - old lorry feathers were turned into blades, machets and bell etc... and in another shop old crafts were made into old canoes".
"If you travel over land, you get to see the delights, but you can also stop at a temple off the beaten track - we had an escorting vehicle and a guidebook, so we were quite self-sufficient, and if we wanted to go there, the guidebook would just arrange it once in a while. Also we had a great part of the trip with the trucks between the temple in Bagan and in Mandalay we did the sightseeing trip with the trucks, which was a lot of fun".
"but we' re not going to talk about long distance. It' great in these trucks anyway. and women who roll smokers sit on their doorsteps." "As we left Burma, the highway to Thailand was very small and meandered over a hilltop.
There' s a strange but logic transport system where everything from Thailand goes to Burma on uneven dates and from Burma on even dates. For me, travelling was the most important thing anyway."
