Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.
We are in the midst of a whirlwind of travel and birthday extravaganza for all four of us (three consecutive days of this week) and I’m again pressed for time and feeling (as always) extremely tired but appreciating it all with a very full heart. We are extremely fortunate to follow up so soon after visiting Luang Prabang with a short road-trip to stunning Vang Vieng last weekend, and now packing to leave in three days to spend Thanksgiving in Hanoi with good friends.
In the rush of things, I didn’t want to leave without at least posting a few shots from the car on the way to Vang Vieng. They say the trip usually takes 4 hours but with my experienced mountain driving husband, we made it along the twisty snaking switchbacks to reach the karst hills and famous Nam Song River in a mere 2.5 hours. The only directions you need for this drive is head north on Rt.13 out of Vientiane.
This is what it looked like along the way…
More pictures of our stay in Vang Vieng coming up next.
