Laos Life: April 2019

Riley tries out nursery school and solid foods, I try out days without kids and three new coffee shops, and Lori and Noe try their best to stay out of trouble.

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.

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?

We’re Back!

After reconnecting with family and friends (and disconnecting from the online world) for the past five months, we’re back! — in Laos, and back on AwayGoWe!

Riley’s Introduction to ITECC

By our second full day together, I could tell Riley was getting restless. Only one solution to that in Vientiane. A trip to ITECC! Only problem is it’s no longer a ten minute walk, but a half-day’s journey on foot.

Noe Turns Two

Hard to believe, but the Mister is two years old! We celebrate Noe’s landmark birthday, then our anniversary, two days later.
