So to pick up from last time I was heading to Laos and the first place there was the capital, Vientiane. It was a short stop where the highlight was the Buddha Park with its hundreds of statues. Next up was Vang Vieng. Now there is a paradise for anyone looking for a place to relax. The best thing was renting mopeds and driving around town.
And the place to go is called the Blue Lagoon. A small but very deep lagoon with ice cold water. It has a bridge and an adjacent tree from which it is possible to jump into the lagoon. So that is off course what one does.
Luang Prabang was next up and to uphold Laos' feel for relaxation I went straight for the town's most famous attraction, a big waterfall.
And off course when faced with pools as nice as the ones there you have only one choice.
Then after spending two days cruising up the Mekong river it was time to head back to Thailand. After a short stop in Chiang Kong I headed to Chiang Mai. There I got up close and personal with some cool cats.
Now I'm back in Bangkok after a 14 hour sleeper train and tonight I jump on a plane and leave Asia after amazing 6 weeks here. It's time to start the journey home, but what fun would it be without a short stop in Paris!
