  • Vang ViengVan Vieng used to be a party Meca but it seems that Lao authorities put a stop to it. The place has scenic views and we managed after some searching to find a nice bungalow with views to the hills. Posted by joxa in j&x travels | Apr 18, 2014
  • PhonsavanOur trip to Phonsavan could be defined by one word: long. It took us 12 hours to arrive there when we were expecting that it'd be only 7. It didn't help that we were cramped sitting on small seats with Posted by joxa in j&x travels | Apr 18, 2014

  • Along Nam Ou RiverWe arrived to Laos after 21 hour journey, first by sleeper bus and then a local minivan. Laos greeted us with series of scams with weird fees incurred on the border. The journey reminded us of our travels in Sumatra Posted by joxa in j&x travels | Apr 17, 2014

  • Trekking (Not Quite) 100 WaterfallsKate woke up feeling okay for 20 minutes, then her stomach turned on her. Pat went to brekky alone with a request for take away for Kate.

  • Hike Up to the ViewpointToday the plan is to hike up one of the surrounding mountains to a viewpoint. Mr Mang passes us walking towards town and asks what Mr James is doing?

  • Minibus From HellHad breakfast at the local bakery (still loving the French influence!) then headed to get our minibus to Nong Khiaw.

  • Bless the FrenchUgh. What a terrible night. Can't say we "woke up" because we didn't sleep. Car alarms, babies crying, a lift dinging, doors opening and slamming shut, worst sheets of all time, sink leaking in the bathroom... No way we were staying Posted by katepluspat in Kate and Pat Blow the House Deposit | Feb 24, 2014
  • Laos, Nong Khiaw und Muang Ngoi Oudomxai hat mich dann doch noch ein wenig traumatisiert. Ich weiß nicht, ob es an der senilen Bettflucht oder aber an der puren Vorfreude lag, den Ort endlich zu verlassen... jedenfalls Posted by daria-unterwegs in Auf nach Asien | Mar 6, 2014
  • LAOS/THAILANDNot had a chance until now to finish this blog. The last week of our trip was very busy with lots of travelling. Even though 2 of those days were on the boat travelling down the Mekong, it's amazing how Posted by Chrissyade in TWOGOTRAVELLING | Mar 4, 2014
