Feeling somewhat nostalgic, I was going through the HD and came across some holiday pics that I had intended to upload some time ago. The pics were taken earlier this year during our holiday to Laos and Thailand. If any of you are considering a simular holiday, just do it, you will not be dissapointed. The Vansana Hotel is a great place to base yourself whilst in Vientiane.
Our popular mode of transport is the back of a Toyota Pick Up. The hair and mouthfull of dust and sand seems a small price to pay when you can afford the luxury of open-air travel….
Rose with one of the stone Elephants outside the Don Chan Palace. We went there for evening drinks and must say that we were surprised at the elegance and luxury that it offers. Seeing this mamouth (geddit) hotel, reminds us all that Vientiane is changing and welcoming more visitors.
Laurene and King take it easy on a River Boat after some Sao Noi Disco. It a beautiful and relaxing way to enjoy an after lunch drink. You can even order your food to from the restaurant to take with you on the pleasant journey.
The urge to shout “Iceberg! Right ahead!!!” was scrapped when I realised that the only ice you see in Vientiane is the cubes that float in Beerlao….
Most kids this age would be scared of Ladybirds or Spiders. But our young friend here from Khon Kaen, Thailand shows us how it is done. Needless to say, Rose refused a photo with the snake whilst I was thinking about how it would taste….
Whilst the rest of us would use Tuk-Tuk´s, Rose and Laurene decided to take the old fashioned way. The funniest moment was when the driver didnt admit that “he didnt know where we were going”, tried to keep up with our Tuk Tuk, gave up and basically dropped the girls off “somewhere”. Luckily we managed to find them…
There is something wonderful about eating Kobe Beef. Perhaps it is the knowledge that the cows were fed beer, listened to soft music and recieved daily massages that makes the beef so interesting. That and the price of course…
I have the ability to find Oysters in every country that I visit. Though I like my Oysters with a dash of Olive Oil, Lemon Juice, Salt and Pepper, the Thai way of eating them with Crispy Shallots, Nam Pla and Lime Juice is also interesting, and very tasty…
“Mr. McGee, don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry”….
