  • Ah duckyAwoken by a dive bombing mosquito and a pesky cockerel it was obviously time to get up ...... shame! However at least we knew we weren’t getting straight onto the bus which was something to be thankful for. After breakfast, Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 11, 2018
  • Passive Smoker?Leaving the city behind, we head south to the remote village of Kong Lor. After a short while we made a brief stop at Wat Prabat Phonsone where you can see the Buddhas footprint (must have been a very Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 11, 2018
  • Wake me up before we go, go .....An early morning call at 3.45 with the monks banging gongs and drums - whilst not appreciating being woken, actually the sound was mesmerising (even recorded it just in case I thought I had dreamt it). Appears that it was Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 11, 2018

  • Easy Rider meets Hard HikeA free day in Vang Vieng and thankfully the sun made an appearance which put a more positive light on the town and surrounding area. Met with our tour guide Onh, Ben and Jen from Essex and hired scooters Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 7, 2018
  • Foggy day in LaosA really early start but this isn’t so bad as it meant I caught the monks receiving alms. Every morning, dozens of locals perch on tiny stools on the road outside the temple whilst the monks then form an Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 7, 2018
  • Day out of Luang PrabangToday was a day out of Luang Prabang to visit the Kuang Si Waterfall and the Bear Rescue Center. The waterfall is a three tier fall and it is very pretty. The water is emerald green at this time of Posted by CWalts in Travel For One - 2018 | Feb 7, 2018

  • Throwing a paddyIt’s official, I can now become a rice farmer, which might be an option when I return to the UK, however from what I learnt today, it’s a lot of hard work and the rewards aren’t that great. Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 5, 2018
  • Slow boat to Luang PrabangDamn those roosters! Not sure what time it was, but my sleep was rudely interrupted by the sqwarking of a local cockerel (the locals equivalent of an alarm clock) and then the pigs joined in. Anyway, we were Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 4, 2018
  • The River QueenThe mighty Mekong awaits! We left the hostel and made our way to the jetty where 26 of us were sharing a private boat meant for 100 so plenty of room. A 7hr trip was ahead of us, Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 4, 2018
  • Who wants to be a millionaire?Onto the next leg of my trip which is Laos and where I will be rejoining the hop on/hop off bus (albeit with new people). Not too early a start and before I know it we’re on the minibus Posted by Tread in Finding Pablo | Feb 4, 2018
  • Another day at 4000 IslandsThe day started with a leisurely boat ride on the Mekong. Passed villages that survive on what the land and river provide. It is so quiet one could think it is a charming existence but these people work Posted by CWalts in Travel For One - 2018 | Feb 4, 2018
  • Pakse and 4000 IslandsFeb 2 Pakse is described as the sleepy provincial capital of Champasak and that is quite accurate. It seems to mirror the lazy flow of the Mekong River which can be seen from most anyway in the town. I was Posted by CWalts in Travel For One - 2018 | Feb 3, 2018

  • Days 16-18I'm at the back of a local bus heading out of Vientiane, desperately trying to work out via GPS when is the right moment to press the stop bell, gather all my things, stumble down the aisle, pay the driver Posted by Danspinner in Uncle Travelling Dan | Jan 30, 2018
  • Days 13-15I feel three days in the Lao city of Luang Prabang was maybe a bit much as, looking back on it, I'm struggling to remember how I filled most of that time. While the whole historic centre is a UNESCO Posted by Danspinner in Uncle Travelling Dan | Jan 23, 2018
  • Days 10-12After another dismal night's sleep, I have to force myself out to see Chiang Rai's two big attractions, the gaudy White Temple and the gothic Black House. The first one is overrun with tourists and is a mildly entertaining construction, Posted by Danspinner in Uncle Travelling Dan | Jan 23, 2018
  • Luang Prabang in A DayTravelling to Luang Prabang in northern Laos on the road from Ubon Ratchathani in north east of Thailand was quite an experience and I felt everything was moving very quickly in this journey. Though it took me 2 days to Posted by kidd27 in Chiang Mai | Dec 23, 2017

  • A Disappointing and Frustrating Day12:34 What a rubbish day. No really, it was awful. The whole point of travelling for 10 hours on a bus, all the way to nearly Vietnam, was to go to Vieng Xai and see the caves that people hid Posted by zoebuck in Zoe's Great Adventure | Aug 1, 2011
  • Small Village Life and Big Climb to a Cave11:29 Today is my 180th day around the world. I haven't beaten Philias Fogg but I had no plans to, but it has been a long time, just a couple of days under 6 months away from home and it Posted by zoebuck in Zoe's Great Adventure | Aug 4, 2011
