Day 9 well our journey to chai khong didn't got aswell as we expected the driver of the minibus drove like a psycho the journey was meant to take around 6 hours but instead took just 3 there were no straight bits of the road just a corner after corner at somepoints we were so scared that we just histerically laughed!!after scary 3 hours we arrived at a very old run down building the driver told us that we've arrived at our overnight accomodation.we were given a room with 5 beds boarded up toilet door and outside door that didn't lock...so so sketchy we felt like refugees!!LOL Gina was so scared that she ended up sharing a bed with Elisa. we survived the night and the next day we crossed the boarded and got on a 5 hour boat journey to our first destination. We got there in the afternoon and we met up with Danielle and Bryan who we met back in Chang Mai.the village we were staying a night at was very small we managed to blag a guesthouse for 100 baht a night (£2) so cheap considering we had double rooms and gorgeous view of the river. All 6 of us went for a lush curry that night and then played cards in one of the rooms to keep ourselves entertained. Day 10 MY BIRTHDAY we got up very early as we wanted to get some lunch and beer for the boat. The boat set off around 9 and didn't arrive in luang prabang until 6 in the afternoon..long long journey but we played cards and drunk beer which made it really good fun. We managed to get a really nice hotel they don't seem to have many hostels here..we have to share double beds LOL in the evening we went to a night market had some yummy and very cheap street food. After the guys bought me couple of muffins and candles and sang happy birthday...so cute!!!we then decided to take a walk around the market but we managed to loose Gina and Sarah (they are so slow walking around they stop at every jewellery stand!!) we then spend nearly 2 hours looking for them we were pretty worried as the town got very sketchy as it got late we got offered drugs at least 4 times while wondering.luckly we found them :) Day 11 we arranged to meet for breakfast at 10 then we set off for the waterfall.the drive there in the tuk-tuk was an adventure in itself it was so so bumpy,we went across some wobbly wooden bridges and took around an hour. Once there we walked through a bear sanctury which was pretty cool one of the bears was just muntching away on a mango got some cool pics. Then 5 minute walk and we were at the most stunning waterfall I've ever seen!!!a big waterfall surounded by smaller waterfals and pools of water...just GORGEOUS!!we took 100 of pics and then had a dip in one of the pools to cool down.probably my favourite day so far :) in the evening we met up with Lauren who we met in Chang Mai she missed us too much and decided to join us again :) she also met a girl called Sarah on her travels who too decided to join us :) we all went for dinner at etopia really cool bar/restaurant it faces the river and everyone sits around the table on cushions. After dinner we moved on for cocktails at hive sadly we were disappointed they were so gross...they seem to add laos whisky to everything!! Day 12 we decided to move on to Vang Vien.the journey took 6 hours more or less everyone felt car sick again the roads were so windy.once there we made our way to Spicy Laos a hostel we were recommended.it was very cool dorms in shape of three tree houses,hammocks all around,outdoor showers,common area,film room and suprisingly wifi. Me Sarah Gina and Elisa got the top floor of the tree house 2 double matresses with misquito nets over them...interesting!!!in the night the 6 of us met up with Lauren and Sarah who decided to get a later bus and we all went for drinks at oh la la.Day 13 TUBING the day had come for us to do tubing which eveyone claims to be immense the 8 of us met up at the place where you rent tubes and set off to the river in a tuk-tuk. You float down the river on the rubber rings and stop at bars, each bar has some kind of mental slide or rope swing and of course each bar sells buckets of alcohol for around 40,000 kip which is just over £3!!!such a good laugh!!after tubing we were all so tired that we just watched friends at one of the bars and grabbed dinner.Day 14 in the morning we had to say our goodbyes to Bryan and Danielle :( who only had a fews days left and still wanted to cover Cambodia we spent the last week with them and it was sad to see them go!!! In the afternoon us girls and Sarahs new friend Andrew (a guy we aparently met the day before at tubing but none of us recognised him apart from Sarah so we decided to call him Sarahs friends as it winds her up LOL) went to see a cave and the blue lagoon.we paid for a tour of the cave which I would recommend as you can get lost in there so easily and there were so many huge spiders!!walking to and around the cave turned into a mission we didn't really prepare and all wore flips flops so climbing the stairs up and walking from slippery stone to another was an effort!!luckly we all escaped injury free but did all look like sweaty pigs after hence why we all look so glossy in the picture LOL lagoon under the cave was beautiful really blue water with lots of swings and rops so we chilled there for a few hours.At night we had some amazing mojitos and went to cube bar for a dance!! Day 15 we decided to go tubing again it was a good laugh but me and Gina got a tad too drunk and ended up in bed by 6pm LOL. Day 16 not a great start to the day I somehow lost my flips flops yday while tubing :( oooops too many drinks!!so I have to walk around in my sandals which is a pain as you have to take off your shoes before stepping into each shop and restaurant and they are hard to get on and off. Gina Elisa and Lauren set off for Cambodia but it wasn't big good byes as we are all meeting up on the islands for the full moon party :) today me and the Sarahs decided to have a chilled out day we went to visit the organic farm,watched friends and played some cards. In the night i decided to use up the rest of my kip and I bought some new flip flops and really cool trouses both came to like £7..BARGAIN :) Day 17 travel day, today we had to get a 4 hour bus to vienttiene airport,a flight to kuala lumpur,followed by a flight to Singapore...fun fun!!
