I arrived in Hanoi at night after a couple solitary days in Vientiane, Laos. It was the halfway point of my trip.
After spending five days in lovely, peaceful Luang Prabang, I was ready to move on, and Vang Vieng makes for a good stopover.
I loved my time in Luang Prabang, Laos, pretty much from the moment I arrived.
Traveling has given me a welcome, luxurious amount of time for reading and reflection.
Before coming to Laos, I didn't know that 1964 to 1973, the U.S. bombed Laos severely during 580,000 missions.
I'd heard great things about Chiang Mai: that it was more laid-back than Bangkok; that prices were cheaper; that it would feel more authentic; that there is a large expat community.
I love food, and I especially loved eating here.
After reading a few blog posts about Luang Prabang being like Disney World, and beautiful but a bit fake, I wasn't sure what to expect.
Koh Lanta was the perfect place to spend our longest stretch of time in the Andaman Sea.
