Flying high above Vang Vieng at sunrise

By | December 4th, 2013|Laos, Photographic Inspiration|

I've never really liked heights, but seeing Vang Vieng at sunrise was worth the struggle with my fear.  It's a strange one really considering that I'm OK flying, will quite happily throw myself out of a perfectly good plane, or dive off a bridge with no more than a glorified elastic band wrapped around my [...]

Bangkok to Vientiane by train (including cost)

By | July 15th, 2013|Laos, Thailand|

Bangkok to Vientiane by train, how does that work then? Taking the train(s) from Bangkok to Vientiane was one of my favourite experiences from my mini tour of Laos and Cambodia.  It was pretty much the first thing I did on said tour, stepping off the plane and almost straight into our little cabin that [...]

Kuang Si Waterfalls and Bear Rescue Centre

By | June 26th, 2013|Laos, Photographic Inspiration|

'The Kuang Si Falls' 'Kuang Si waterfalls' 'THE KUANG SI WATERFALLS DAMMIT!' ... scream the good people of Facebook when I ask them what I should get up to whilst in Luang Prabang.  I trust in them and take the plunge, a little skeptical that Kuang Si will in no way be able to [...]

The Blue Lagoon – Vang Vieng

By | June 12th, 2013|Laos, Photographic Inspiration|

The Blue Lagoon is a must for any travellers visiting Vang Vieng in my opinion ... if only to escape the searing heat for a couple of hours.  Located around a 25 minute tuk tuk ride or 45 minute bicycle ride from town, the lagoon pretty much does what it says on the tin.  Its [...]

Songkran 2013 – super soakers at dawn in Luang Prabang

By | May 22nd, 2013|Laos, Photographic Inspiration|

Songkran, the world famous water festival that takes place over Thai new year.  With nothing but envy I've read countless blogs posts on the festival and how much fun the worlds biggest water fight is.  Hammering passers by with a stream of fresh water from a super soaker resembling something built by Tony Stark becomes [...]

Tubing in Vang Vieng. Whats the story in 2013?

By | May 15th, 2013|Laos|

Tubing in Vang Vieng, is it all done and dusted with? Once the perennial South East Asian backpacker piss up party town, it was THE place to sit in an old decrepit rubber ring, float down a beautiful river of which you will take little notice, use you mates faces as a canvas for your new found love of fluorescent art, drink beer [...]

Laos and Cambodia in Video. My Office Escape.

By | May 9th, 2013|Cambodia, Laos, Video|

Laos and Cambodia, two totally awesome countries! Encase this is your first visit to my blog, or if you just haven't passed through in a while, you might not be aware that I recently spent the best part of a month exploring both Laos and Cambodia with my better half. It was a whirlwind trip which involved [...]

Laos and Cambodia – Real Time Photos (and maybe some videos … maybe)

By | April 8th, 2013|Cambodia, Laos, Real Time Blogging|

Lord knows how much free wifi i'm going to find in Laos and Cambodia, I may just have to take a hit of the roaming charges to keep this little beauty going. So for the third time in just over a month Esther and I are jetting off to explore a new destination. At the [...]
