Our first Huntsman

Wed 7th December 2011

We had a little visitor in the form of a (very) scary looking Huntsman spider this evening. It was very large and hairy!

Okay, so you’re aren’t supposed to kill Huntsmen as they eat all the bugs etc. Being English though I’m not used to having spiders as big as my hand crawling round the kitchen! I killed it with some bug spray. I felt quite guilty doing it but there was no way I was going near it to take it outside!

Not what you need to see just before you’re due to head to bed (on an air bed). Thank god for insect spray!

 

Crazy insect man

Thu 27th October 2011

The local man turned out to have lots of insects for us to hold (er no way) and take photos of. Next up, two Scorpions.

Snakes…okay. I draw a line at scorpions!

The long way down

Fri 2nd September 2011

The mountain road was long and very unstable. The driver liked to honk his horn to warn other traffic we were there. Such a good job as the sharp turns made my stomach flip!

Matt says...

It was a long way down on the route over the mountains! Some parts were very scary (for Claire), I was okay I had a camera in front of my face so you couldn’t see me crying. Lets just say we tipped the driver well as we are glad we made it to Luang Prabang in one piece.

I look very worried in this photo. I may even be frowning. Honestly, I have never felt so unsafe in a bus in my entire life. Can look back and laugh now though!
