Check in: Laos.

You know that feeling you get when you can’t really be bothered with doing anything or going anywhere. Koh Tao definitely had that effect on me. I ended up staying longer than I had intended, and in the midst of the island vibe I forgot to cancel my reservation for the hotel in Laos as proof of onward travels from Thailand. The reservation is in 2 days, non-refundable, in Luang Prabang. I had to leave the country on the 28th anyways so might as well get my ass in gear. My hotel booking is in Luang Prabang for 4 days, but I would love to see more of this beautiful country. Last night I booked a last minute flight for today with Air Asia. Air Asia is the asian version of our Norwegian, with super cheap tickets for all the neighbouring countries here in Asia.

The next days will be pretty hectic to say the least. I need to start exploring as much as I can, I have less than 24 hours in Vientiane, which is where I am right now. Tomorrow my bus leaves for Vang Vieng at 9.30 am, where I will also only be staying one night before going to Luang Prabang, and then finally relax a little again. It’s really easy to get around here in Asia, every hostel is so used to backpackers that they have arrangements with the bus companies. You just buy a ticket for your next destination in the reception, and they come and pick you up wherever you are. I’ve heard stories about bus travels in Laos, so let’s just say I will be taking my motion sickness pills, and drink up on coffee when I arrive, as those pills make me sleepy.

After 10 days living on a beach my mind is no where near the hectic state of mind one needs to travel around like I am going to the next couple of days. But I have done some research and there is a few things I would love to experience, like tubing down the river in Vang Vieng. So stay tuned! I promise I’ll try to be better at updating my whereabouts and what’s what. I even have a ton of film to edit from Cambodia, same with pictures from Vietnam. With the whole bedbug situation everything got pushed back. Well for now, tudelu!
