Luang Prabang - Laos

Picked up my dad in Vientiane, no problem. For his first afternoon in Laos, we took him to a little retreat (despite being in town, we were in the middle of the forest) in a little bamboo house with a home-made sauna, then got a one-hour Lao-style massage.

We spent another day in Vientiane, cycling around to see the sights, eating at the market. Then we took a day bus to go North to Luang Prabang. It was a loooooong bus ride: 350 km in 11 hours. We've mainly been travelling by night these days so I found the bus ride quite long, especially since we were driving so slowly and stopping so often. But the landscape was absolutely stunning. Gorgeous mountains lost in the clouds and the mist. It was definitely worth it.

We arrived in Luang Prabang yesterday evening and today we walked around, already saw a couple of the sights (the royal palace museum - STUNNING). My dad and I signed up to a little cooking class tomorrow night. I reckon there's probably gona be some shopping done at the night market tonight :D
