Travel Happy Myanmar Kevin Kelly In Myanmar
Wired magazine co-founder and Asia Grace author Kevin Kelly is currently travelling in Myanmar, blogging as he goes on Google+
Kevin Kelly, co-founder of Wired magazine, tech futurist and author of the stunning travel photo book Asia Grace, is currently traveling Myanmar and keeping a blog of sorts on his Google+ page. Kelly is mainly focusing on the Inle Lake area but his Google+ page already has some fascinating updates and photos from his first few days in Burma. If you visit the page, his Myanmar travels begin on 29th April (they’re posted in reverse chronological order) and before that there’s his reflections on Singapore which are also worth a read.
I interviewed Kevin Kelly about his book Asia Grace last year on Travelhappy – it’s a collection of photos from his travels in Asia in the early 1970s which have now been made available online and through an iPad app where others can leave notes about the location and content of each photo. It’s really worth checking out as a unique snapshot of Asia long before mass tourism arrived.
