Death of a Burmese Adventure Traveller


Rolf Potts is an excellent travel writer and a advocate of vagabonding. On a recent trip back to Tahiland, he heard tell that an old Burmese friend of his may have died, which launched him into this article about how adventure travel that’s sponsored by some Western company is more about fancy gear than actually understanding a place or culture. Living somewhere remote and exotic takes a whole lot more gumption, but barely ever gets covered by the media.

Warren Frey is a journalist, freelance writer, podcaster, video producer, and all-around media consultant currently based in Vancouver, Canada. His written work has appeared in such publications as Metro Vancouver, the Westender, Mac | Life and the Japan Times.
