Vientiane – 4 Years Ago

The post that never got posted from our 2012 backpacking trip through Asia. And, ironically, the place we’ve now ended up moving to in Asia. A look back at our first time around in Vientiane!

Vientiane: Arrival & Move-In

We’ve arrived! Three more flights from Brussels to Vientiane get us to our new home just before noon. Now, we’ve got less than 24 hours to move-in to our temporary abode before Lori reports to work in the morning.

Moving to Laos!

Yep, you guessed it! We’re moving to Laos! Noe’s coming along too. As you can see, he is pretty stoked.

It’s The Climate

Backpacking in the tropics isn’t always a cakewalk, especially in the middle of rainy season. We tried our best to avoid the rains and would have been completely unsuccessful if not for a last-minute decision to head to Laos.

4,000 Islands: Don Det

Exploring the uber chill and captivating little island of Don Det (located among 3,999 of its closest friends) in the middle of the mighty Mekong.

Luang Prabang (Pt.2)

In Part Two of our exploration of the UNESCO town of Luang Prabang, we continue to discover the wonders of this unique place and hop a local boat for an impromptu jungle adventure.

Luang Prabang (Pt.1)

Our two-day Mekong boat journey from Thailand ends at an astounding place – owing to its mysterious, historical, and natural character, and the fact that we hadn’t read up at all on this amazing destination.

Slow Boat to Luang Prabang

Getting from Chiang Kong to Luang Prabang was a fun and unique experience — two days on a long wooden boat floating down one of the world’s great rivers.
