Mountains or beach? Adventure or relaxation? How many times have you had that travel-planning conversation? Especially if you're thinking of a far-flung fling to the other side of the planet, you want to be sure you book a vacation that's right for you.
How about New Zealand and Tahiti? That's right. We've noticed lately that it's possible to combine two incredible South Pacific destinations in one trip. You can set up a travel itinerary that includes rugged, scenic, and adventurous New Zealand, plus beautiful, relaxing, tropical Tahiti (with its luxurious overwater bungalows, turquoise lagoons, and superb snorkeling).

The mist slowly dissolved and trees and vines became visible. Other shapes, not from nature, also materialized through the morning drizzle. It was my first glimpse of Guayabo, Costa Rica's ancient lost city. The patina of antiquity on these rock walls and roadways made them look like they have always been here in the highland jungle.

The way I traveled as an 18-year-old college student is not the same way I travel as a 27-year-old full-time writer. The one aspect my two selves have in common is that we are of the Millennial generation, categorized as people currently between the ages of 16 and 34, or anyone born after 1980.

Are you planning a trip to Myanmar? Here's how to see the most of this fascinating country if you've got a good sense of adventure and two weeks to go exploring.
Day 1-3: Yangon
Yangon is the gateway to magnificent Myanmar. The major hub for international and domestic flights alike, it is not a bad place to start. As soon as you step out of the airport it is readily apparent that being cut off from the globalized world has allowed Myanmar to retain its cultural authenticity. Men wear sarong skirts, women wear pasty white thanaka paint on their faces, and the city is abuzz with a one-of-a-kind energy. The main sites in the tropical city actually cover a fairly small area and are manageable on foot, although taxis and public transportation are available. In a few days, you can cover the main sites of interest in Yangon including Sule Pagoda, Inya Lake, Shwedagon Pagoda, Kandawgyi Lake, Chinatown, and Bogyoke Aung San Market.
Day 4-7: Bagan
