And my face found its way in your blog. How awesomely random is that!!! Great blog!! Brings back a lot of not so good yet fun memories. Keep safe man!! We survived VangVieng!!\n\nPaul

    Good review, Alex. Like the photos. I couldn’t make to Vientiene this summer. Stayed in Luang Prabang. Monsoon rain was really bad and ended up with Mekong river madness… It is good to see what Ive missed 😉 Alex

    • Glad you Liked the photos! I’ve heard that the government shut down the bars in Vang Vieng so not sure if there’s still any tubing going on at the moment. Luang Prabang isn’t a bad place to get stuck at :)
