“Myanmar is one of the most magical countries and one that truly captures my heart and soul,” explains Mazzaro.To help her clients better understand this complex destination, she may have them take a weaving class near Inle Lake (the region is known for its handmade textiles) or visit Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon to see sacred Buddhist ceremonies. “Hundreds of candles are lit by clients and a special blessing takes place,” she says. “It's a very special moment.” Other cultural experiences she’s planned include a trip to Ngapali Beach, where Mazzaro’s family operates a music school. “My father was a violin teacher and my brother and I were raised playing the violin,” she says. “Our family has been donating music and violins and my brother has been volunteering his time teaching the children at the school, which serves over 600 children. There are no fees to visit. I have been taking my clients there, and the personal interaction has been extremely heartwarming.”
