September 29, 2012. George and I met online because of the Schwedagon Pagoda. During my travels to over one hundred countries, I had visited the Schwedagon Pagoda in 2001 at sunset and it has always been one of my favorite and most memorable places. I mentioned that to George in one of our first online dating emails and he was hooked! A woman with exotic international travel in her blood that is what he wanted in a life partner. From the beginning, we talked about returning to Yangon together to see Schwedagon Pagoda at Sunset and now here we are!

Enjoy our story!
