Cold, an Unfamiliar (Brief) Feeling

A travel blog entry by meghan.dobson

... add another layer. It helped my upper body, not my feet though! The other issue was that they never turned the lights off. So, being right next the ceiling, it was very bright in my bunk. I found that pulling the blanket over my head helped with both issues, so I did get snippets of sleep. Lesson learned - choose the bottom bunk! Although next time the AC will be coming out of the floor or something and I'll be frozen again! When we got off the train, we ...

Our bus left Phonsovan at 7:30pm and we got into Vientiane at 06:30, a long eleven hour bus journey. It was a sleeper bus, so instead of seats it had little beds, they were less than the width of a single bed, and only about five foot in length. Turned out each bed was for two people.
