Laos Life: March 2019
From killer smog, to potty training, first weekend away, to 3/4 of the fam getting sick, March had a little something for everyone. Here's a look back at an eventful month here in Vientiane.
Toxic
What's it like to live with the worst air quality in the world? Little did we know, we were about to find out.
Lao Lake House
Lao Lake House may have been the very first Vientiane weekend trip we heard of when we moved to Laos. 2.5 years later, we finally make the trip to the serene estate on Nam Houm Lake.
Champa Garden Restaurant
A 10km drive north of the city center, Champa Garden offers excellent Lao food in a unique aquatic setting, along with a sprawling Champa flower garden in a city where gardens are few and far between.
Just Another Saturday Night…
It's Saturday night again in Vientiane. Riley and I have just made it to the drop zone, and have just 90 minutes to rendezvous with the rest of our party at the designated extraction point. Will we make it in time, or get waylaid by cold beer?
Hiking Wealth Coffee Nature Trails
Who says there aren't any hiking trails around Vientiane? Today, we're exploring a little-known corner of the area, with a unique coffee shop and miles of semi-shaded nature trails.

Welcome to AwayGoWe.com!

I’m Dave. I’m an Oregonian living in Southeast Asia. I travel. I write. I do other fun stuff. And, I do most of it with a kid in tow—make that two this fall.

Since 2010, my wife, Lori, and I have been sharing our travel stories with the world on AwayGoWe, and more recently, on PlacesApart.com and Dadventurings.com.

In the interest of simplifying our lives further, we recently decided to consolidate our three sites into one—AwayGoWe.
