1 year ago today we arrived in Myanmar to start another adventure together! We swam in waterfalls, hiked up mountains, swam with manta rays, watched magical sunrises, strolled through ancient temples and checked so many things off our bucket list. . . We originally were going to hold off a year, but looking back, we are SO happy we didn’t. Take the chance. Go for it. Don’t wait! . . NEW guide on Mandalay, Myanmar is up. Link in bio! . . . #WhirlwindTravellers #Myanmar #Mandalay #MandalayMyanmar #Southeastasia #southeastasiatravel #travelsoutheastasia #seasia #girlstravelingasia #girlsabroad #sheisnotlost #travelgirlsgo #wearetravelgirls #wetravelgirls #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #womentravel #explorerbabes #dreamyworld #lessismoreoutdoors #earth_deluxe #girlsmeetglobe #girlslovetravel #darlingescapes #getlostnow #mapiful #wanderintwo #wanderluster #ichosetowander #backpackerstory

📍 Mingun Pahtodawgyi. (An hours drive from Mandalay, Myanmar). Started in 1790, this temple was intentionally left unfinished, with multiple variations to the reason why. One prophecy states that if construction was finished, the king would die. . . After construction stopped (after the king died), it had reached 50 metres in height, only one third of its INTENDED height! Crazy! . . In 1839 a huge earthquake caused the cracks in the structure, giving it this epic look! . . Myanmar is actual magic. Our NEW GUIDE to Mandalay, Myanmar is live.

Sunset was just as spectacular as sunrise at u-bein bridge in Mandalay, Myanmar. This is the longest wooden bridge in the world! This country really knows how to do good sunsets and sunrises!

Mandalay, Myanmar, Kuthodaw (royal merit), Pagoda, Worlds Largest Book...729 white washed stupas, each with its own tablet, and topped with a precious stone, all arranged in rows around the central golden Pagoda and the 730th tablet. Commissioned by King Mindon as part of his transformation of Mandalay into a royal Capitol, completed in 1868. Awesome sight & pretty bright, bring yer sunnies! #kuthadawpagoda #mandalaymyanmar #myanmartourism #myanmartours #myanmartravel #sagaciousmyanmartravelsandtours #worldslargestbook #pagodas

I was born and raised in Mandalay, which is considered by many to be the center of Burmese culture. Whenever I go back to Myanmar, I always like to take a walk by the Mandalay Palace and visit the Pagoda at the top of the Mandalay Hill with my family or friends. The view from the top, overlooking the city of Mandalay is just amazing. 💗 - - - #culturalfellows #fitnycintl #fitnycintltakeover #fitnyc #nyc #myanmar #visitmyanmar #mandalaymyanmar

. MIXING BURMESE ROYAL COURT MUSIC Three screenshots of the mixes of the Burmese Court Music recording session from the previous post. . I did these mixes on-the-road using the very cool Auria Pro DAW app on my iPad Pro. They were made to go with the video footage from the session, so I intentionally left them simple and under-produced. I was aiming for a fast turnaround with something clean and representative, knowing that if the video footage is compelling enough it can hide a lot of sins in the audio. . It was also one of my earliest attempts at overcoming my own perfectionism and the paralysis it creates when you believe nothing you do is ever good enough to release; the idea was to give myself a deadline and limited tools (just like in my old days of working in analogue studios) and just get it done. It turned out quite well and has appeared in the promo videos I made for later Burma expeditions. . There were four instruments in this ensemble: the Pat Waing (21 drums in a circle), the Kyi Waing (21 gongs in a circle), the Maung Hsaing (gongs in rectangular frame), and the See Wah (a wood block and a cymbal used for time keeping). I used three Rode NT6s around the Pat Waing, a Rode NT2000 above the Kyi Waing, another Rode NT2000 above the Maung Hsaing, and for the See Wah I used a lovely old AKG D12 which did a great job of taming the attack of the wood block and mellowing the intensity of the cymbal. . . . . . #soundexpedition #soundexpeditions #gregsimmons #burmesemusic #auriapro #myanmarmusic #rodemicrophone #mandalaymyanmar #ipadpro2017 #mixingaudio #rodemics #mixsession #mixingsession #soundengineers #myanmartourism #mixingstudio #mixdown #myanmarburma #soundengineering #rodemic #mandalay #soundengineer #burma #mixing #ipadpro #traveldeeper #ipadmusic #ipadmixing

. RECORDING BURMESE ROYAL COURT MUSIC A shot from a large ensemble recording of Burmese Royal Court Music in Mandalay, Myanmar, some time in 2017. . This recording was part of one of my educational group recording expeditions. It took place in a studio that must’ve been designed by the same acoustician who designed the community radio station’s studio I used to make my first ensemble recordings in Mandalay (see earlier posts), because the somewhat unique acoustic treatments and colour scheme were the same. In fact, when I described the community radio station’s studio by its colour scheme and acoustic treatments to one of the musicians, he said (via interpreter) “Oh, I know that studio!” and brought us to this one. The performance space was smaller than the community radio station, but the control room was good and it proved to be a very workable studio. . I took a close-miked approach to this recording, using a total of six tracks. I’ll share some screen dumps of the preview mixes I made in Auria Pro on my iPad Pro in the next post. . This session was recorded with three Rode NT6s, two Rode NT2000s and a beautiful old AKG D12 all running through the studio’s console (a Behringer X32, IIRC) and into their Protools rig. In this pic I am about to film a bit of the tuning process with my Sony RX100 MkIII. I am not sure who took this pic – if it’s one of yours yell out! . . . . . #burmamusic #burmesemusic #burmamyanmar #myanmarmusic #mandalaymyanmar #burmatravel #myanmartravel #myanmarburma #myanmartrip #mandalay #burma #myanmar #akgd12 #sonyrx100mk3 #rodemics #rodemicrophones #behringerx32 #protools #soundexpedition #soundexpeditions #gregsimmons #ethnomusicology #cultural #traveldeeper #culture #traditionalmusic #recordings #recordingstudios

On a stroll in ..... Mandalay, you would perchance come across some temples where the interior is visibly different from the rest such as this one, where the arches are enhanced by plain handwritten words instead of other decorative features which thus makes it stand out.

Are our times the same? Maybe, when you see this picture, you feel you cannot determine when it was taken. Because for many, customs are still intact, and time seems to be frozen. We live the same era, what changes are the forms. —- Son nuestros tiempos los mismos? Tal vez, al ver ésta foto, sientas que no puedes determinar cuando fue tomada.

Here’s to the now. . . No we’re not travelling at the moment, but that’s okay. We are working at home in Toronto. Not only to save money for more travel, but to build careers, to save for a house, to live the life we want. This does not mean we’re unhappy, or that travelling isn’t our passion, it simply means we’re putting in the work while still E N J O Y I N G where we are right now. . . Who cares if you haven’t met all your goals right at this very moment? There’s always tomorrow. If you look all the way to the top of the staircase, you might miss the step right in front of you! . . Put down the phone today, let go of your worries about the future, get present, focus on the good stuff happening today! . . . #WhirlwindTravellers #Myanmar #MandalayMyanmar #Mandalay #southeastasia #seasia #southeastasiatravel #travelsoutheastasia #myanmartravel #myanmartrip #travelcouples #discoverunder5k #couplestravelgoals #couplestravel #creativetravelcouples #twotravelers #inspiredtravelcouples #adventuretravel #waterfallsofinstagram #waterfallsfordays #epicviews #coupleslovetravel #wanderintwo #twotickets #discoverunder10k #beautifuldestinationsaroundworld #nomadcouples #backpackersintheworld #wearebackpackers
