This tour offers you a unique opportunity to gain a first-hand experience of Burmese and Bhutanese culture, music, history and contemporary life. I am confident you will come away with a deep understanding of the complexities and wonders within this nation going through many sociopolitical changes. We will experience together the beauty of the country’s cities and rural villages, and explore its world renowned UNESCO World Heritage sites. Perhaps we will even better understand and be inspired by Bhutan’s Happiness Index.
Joe will be offering photography instruction on any level to fit your needs. We will have photo reviews and critiques for those who care to participate. If you choose to not participate, that would be perfectly fine, although I can tell you that your “tourist” pictures are guaranteed to improve.
