Welcome back to Travel Blog
Hey Travis, glad you have survived....well everything. Being a nurse my heart stopped when you jumped...in Nepal. Couldn't you hear me screaming...no, don't, what are you doing? Not a choice I'd make after a brain injury but you have a life to live and you get to decide how to do it. Please don't let your mom read this blog. Although I'm sure it would not be the first time you gave her palpitations. I'm thrilled that you are doing well. I"m going to go back and read some of your blogs. I remember you winning photo of the week. I think it was your photo in Burma. We wrote a couple of times a while back. You might remember me because my mother is from Seneca. Anyway-- Good luck finishing school and please keep your feet on the ground for a bit.

Welcome back to blogging...
I was wondering what happened to you as you were one of my favorite bloggers. You didn't have to provide such an elaborate excuse for not blogging. I hope you learned not to tempt Fate, although bungee jumping after recovering from your rugby accident borders on it. I high school I learned to play rugby from a unit of the New Zealand army. We experienced too many broken bones in the first game, we all quit.

Welcome back...
I'm delighted that you decided to continue your blogs although the thought that you have transitioned to a boring life never to return to the adventures of the last year and a half may be depressing. But drawing lessons from these journeys will be cathartic. And remember, once a traveler always a traveler...there is more to experience someday.

Gili T
I stumbled upon your blog as my husband and I are planning our next travels to Bali and the Gili Islands in May. You have an amazing style of writing that made me want to read more and more. Are you planning to go to Grad School for Writing?

Gili T Response
Thanks for that wonderful compliment! Actually, no - writing is just a hobby that I've developed recently entirely because of this blog. I try to use my entries as a creative outlet, rather than just providing commentary on travel destinations. It makes it more fun and involved for me... Bali and the Gilis were wonderful. If you guys have any questions about them, feel free to shoot me a message.

I wish you 've met her who is wonderful again and your picture is more beautiful than in past. Your new camara?

Bagan Travel Info
This Myanmar trip was entirely independent travel, so I'm afraid I can't mention any tour operators. But I would actually strongly recommend against using a package tour company in Myanmar. Most, if not all, of these operators are government owned, which means all that money goes into government hands instead of local hands. And it really isn't that hard to travel independently in Myanmar. In Bagan, I stayed in the town of Nyaung U. This is where you'll find the majority of the budget accommodation. You can hire horsecart drivers, book bus tickets, or plan any other tourist activity through your guesthouse/hotel. In my other Myanmar blog, "Circles in the Wild", I discuss many important preparation considerations. In the comments section I also roughly outline prices to expect while traveling in Myanmar. I'd recommend you read that entry if you're looking for more general travel information.

Yogyakarta Travel Info
When you stay in Yogya, you'll likely end up in the area known as Sosrowijayan. This is a great little touristic block of town. It has the whole range of accommodation, from nice hotels to $10 homestays. There is also a great collection of restaurants in this area. It is on one of the main streets in central Yogya and is only a short walk from markets, art galleries, and the walled city. Sosrowijayan is also where you will find numerous tour companies, all offering the same packages. They can also help you buy bus or plane tickets.

Indeed, Dave. Java was quite frustrating for me, but the days to follow were some of the best I've ever had. More on that soon...
