We are in Laos! Woo! We are on a stupidly long bus journey heading for Luang Prabang. Could be worse. A couple of guys on here with us have been travelling from Sapa for 20 hours now.

Needless to say the resort is luxurious - a great find by Neal. We started this "slow" day with breakfast at the resort and a small planning session. There seems to be so much to do in this beautiful town. We walk the 30 minutes it takes to get into the main area of town. We're staying on ...
