Luang Prabang, je t'aime

Die Stadt der Traeume, vom Mekong gesaeumt. Franzoesischer Kolonialstil trifft urspruenglich erhaltene Laos-Architektur. Wie in Hoi An, aber tausendmal schoener, da nicht mit Touri-Muell vollgestopft. Und wirklich: es gibt hier zwar Mofas, aber nur einen Bruchteil von denen, die wir sind gesehen...

Day 13 -- How To Bathe An Elephant

Into every vacation a little rain must fall, or a lot. All last night it poured. The monsoon has finally come in earnest, and soon the Mekong and its tributaries will rise 10 - 20 feet. Throughout our journeys, we've seen the high water marks on rocks and vegetation and footpaths, but it...

Day 12 -- Luang Prabang Redux

Wherein my zest for journaling starts its slow retreat. Today we were up before dawn, literally, to watch the procession of the monks. In most other places, the monks make their daily rounds collecting alms in small groups, or even alone, but here, they do it in a long procession, monastery...

Day 11 -- Luang Prabang

It's now midday, our second day on the boat, and we've just finished one of the most delicious meals ever. Potato soup, chicken and vegetables, glass noodles and pork. Fresh pineapple for desert. My only regret is that I can't eat more of it, or have it again. And we ate this feast, looking...

Pohjois-Laosin maisemissa historiallisessa paakaupungissa

Takana kahdeksan tunnin uuvuttava matka niin kutsutussa VIP-bussissa (jossa luksuksesta ei ollut muuta jaljella kuin tarra ikkunassa) pitkin kiemurtelevia kapeita vuoristoteita, vieressa oksentava nainen ja edessa mies joka huudahti aina kun bussin renkaat kavi lahella tien reunaa ja satojen...

La connaissance de soi par l'effort physique

J'ai été ces derniers jours dans une grande réflexion sur la nature de mon voyage et les raisons qui m'ont poussées à entreprendre cette aventure. Tout cela vient du fait que partout où je vais, peu importe ce que je fais, je me retrouve entouré de gros bras en bedaine et gros seins en bikini....

Last day In Luang Prabang

As Luang Prabang is so chilled and simply just a lovely place to be and visit, we just had to spend one more night here! You can so easily get sucked into ‘The Laos way of life’ here and just never leave. For a city it is so tiny, admittedly with a ton of tourists, but in a good...

Charly's Birthday Boxing Day...

We had a lie in and then went across to meet Gill for lunch at a nice Café overlooking the Mekong. Whilst there we also saw Andy who was sitting in the restaurant next to us. After lunch we went for a stroll to the Dara market where we bargained hard for an “original”, hmmm, North...

Eeeeekkkkkkk.... It's my birthday!!!!

Charly’s birthday was finally here and it started off with a bang at 5am as a massive thunderstorm hit our small town and probably half of Laos. After a late night drinking Lao Lao Mojitos, it was not a welcome surprise and so we started off the day feeling pretty tired. We finally got out of...

Teaching English to the local children...

Had a great day today and decided to continue hanging out with the people from our guesthouse, Kara and Pierre and walked about Luang Prabang until we got too tired and caught a boat across the River to a bar with amazing views, but more importantly cheap cocktails! But we couldn’t stay...
