The Flood!

In Kong Lon caves area Arrived here by a 7 hour bus ride from Vientiane yesterday and it started raining when we arrived and still hasn't stopped for 22 hours. I came to see the cave and ride a boat 6.5 k thru them, but the water is too high and fast so the caves are closed. My guesthouse...

Leaving Vietnam for Laos and New Adventure

The border They won't let me cross with bike!!!!! Think it is driving across, not a technical problem with ownership- they don't let any bikes across hete! Maybe I could hire a truck to take it and me across? That didn't work out. Went back to guesthouse and sold the bike to the...

Day 14 -- Vientiane

Dear Backpackers. I apologize. Your waterfall swimming hole is far, far superior to my hotel pool. Really. Please ignore everything I said on Day 12. But first, catching up on last night, the rain did break for a bit, so Ellery and I hurried to Joma (our Starbucks-like hang out) for a...

Uusivuosi Laosin tapaan

Raja ylitetty mutta uuden vuoden juhlinta jatkuu samoissa merkeissa kuin Thaimaassakin, vetta heitellaan niin pyhimysten patsaiden kun toisten ihmistenkin paalle. Guesthouseni edessa on Vientianen suurin vesisota, koko guesthousen vaki ja puolet kaupungin nuorista tanssivat poytien ja...

S'aventurer sur un terrain glissant...

Me revoici de retour dans la capitale Laotienne, Vientiane, après un voyage en bus de 36h, contre les 11h prévues. Je vous fais un topo rapide: coincé 25h dans les montagnes à cause d'un glissement de terrain, avec que des laotiens, à manger du riz blancs, à pisser dans le bois, à marcher dans...

Walk around Vientiane

After a very tasty lunch of Noodle soup with Crispy Pork, we went out to explore Vientiane and walked to the Laos version of the Arc de Triomphe. It was ok but nothing special, we then headed back to the Mekong to take in sunset in a rooftop bar. We enjoyed a couple of beers and then...

Vientiane

Awoke at the unearthly hour of 3:45am. We went into the lounge where Polly was sleeping and were astounded to see her up and dressed already – think she was proving a point!? Not good at mornings let alone this early, even breakfast is a struggle at this time! Our pick up was arranged for 5am...

sunsets, soldiers, and a belated bonfire night

beetle spirits, and capsizing!

Kayaking was awesome! to start at the beginning of the day- we woke up for a special breakfast at 8, put on by the owners of the hostel. they wanted to thank us for staying with them, and send us off in a traditional Laos style. this meant that they cooked us a rice pudding type dish with pork...

Vientianne - Not for long.

Dispatches from Laos have our hero making a bee-line out of Vientianne to Savannakhet. Vientianne is a little too touristy and - to date - the most expensive place so far. THe bus ride from Vientianne to Savannakhet was billed as 6 hours. reality: 9. OUCH! AT HOME. (snoring sounds) "wha......
