    Slow boat

    The owner of the guesthouse told us that we should leave ay 7am - we both knew that this was not going to happen. As ever the alarm went off extremely early and we ignored it. By 8.30am, we were up, dressed and packed. We paid for our room, bid goodbye to the nice lady and began walking towards the bus station. From the bus station we took a tuk-tuk to the Laos immigration where we had to fill out numerous pieces of paper (all repeating the same information) ...

    The Mekong!!

    A travel blog entry by rubeshoops on May 22, 2015

    The first days boat ride was awesome, we cruised down the river at a very relaxing speed, while taking in the scenery along the way. My Dad had told me this was a beautiful part of the world and he wasn't kidding! The landscape is stunning, and we even saw an elephant bathing on the side of the river, so nice to see a real wild elephant and not one of the poor ones who are held for human gain.

    They sold beer on the boat, which was a ...

    We pay our guesthouse for seats on the slowboat ride from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang down the Mekong River. It's a 12 hour ride stretched over 2 days with a stop in Pakbeng, Laos. Online we've read horror stories but it's a backpacker milestone in Southeast Asia. We get in a tuk tuk (a taxi that's not quite a car) with four other people. We quickly make friends. Two of them are Canadians from BC (typical) - Katy and Kayla, a Swiss guy - Valentin and a guy from LA. The Canadian girls ...

    ... for protection on the river. After lunch we visited a village to see how people who are so remote live. By road they're 8 hours from Luang Prabang and there's no electricity or water. The kids run around naked and the women try to sell us scarves they've woven. There's no sign of the men - Nic thinks they're watching the football seeing as it's Saturday afternoon. (I'm not sure she was paying attention at the 'no leccy' part.) To be honest it was all a bit ...

    ... This was great as it provided a refreshing breeze to flow through the rows of sardines... I mean passengers. A few minutes into the trip and I saw the drivers assistant saying a prayer and throwing what looked like a rice offering into the river. They are very religious/superstitious these Asian's. Imagine walking onto a US airways flight and seeing the captain praying and sprinkling rice all over the ramp. It just doesn't happen, but it's a normal part ...
