James and Dan travel the world
Laos Laos Laos. what can i say. We spent 10 days exploring the most chilled out and relaxed country in the world. and it was goooood. Out side the 2 main cities Laos buildings consist of only bamboo huts. Many an evening was simply spent chillin out in a local bamboo hut bar watching family guy or Team America. ( sometimes 12 hours straight). The most energetic day was spent floating down the river on a rubber ring with every other backpaker in Laos. (thats about 50). Along the side of the river locals held out poles and pulled us in to drink beer and Laos wisky. every bar also included a rope swing or jumping platform into the river. Some of which were BIG!!! Brilliant fun! WE took two boat trips. One of which was nice and peacefull throught the rural fishing villages of north Laos. The other down the Mekong was MENTAL. We took the speed boad in order to watch the football. Basically a big engine on a plank if wood. Luckely we were provided with ear plugs and crash helmets for the 6 hour trip.
