Blue sky at night

Wed 31st August 2011

This is the same view come dusk. We couldn’t leave our room without stopping and staring at the scenery, providing mean and moody backdrop to the skyline.

Lookout Laos

Tue 30th August 2011

On the way to Vientiane we stopped at a lookout to admire the view. It was like something straight out of Lost, the jagged cliff faces sticking out from the lush green foilage.

What an amazing view. It’s hard to sleep on the bus when you have this to look out on (plus the roads are incredibly bumpy!)

Rolling with my homies

Mon 29th August 2011

On the mountain road to our overnight stop we passed some breathtaking scenery. I was nervous looking at the painful drop to the valley floor. Laos certainly knows how to do mountains!

Even in my fragile state I was loving Laos already. With only 9 million people in the country it’s a lot more laid back that anywhere we have been so far.

That’s why everyone loves it!

This photo doesn’t do the Halong Bay islands justice.  They loom out of the calm water like dark, green-fringed monsters. In fact, we thought that from afar, they looked a little like the Lock Ness Monster!

Everywhere you point a camera in Ha Long Bay is a great picture. It’s really hard to do it justice with one photograph. You really have to see it for yourself.

I sat on the top deck of the boat for a while, watching the majestic scenery pass by. It was one of those ‘I’m so lucky to be seeing this’ moments that I’m pretty familiar with now.
