Next stop, PDR Laos

Having said our fond farewells to northern Thailand and the amazing landlady, Tao at our guesthouse, Allan had the hazardous job of calming Chloe down for the flight on Lao Airlines turbo-prop plane.

In the end, the journey was remarkably smooth from the tuk-tuk to the airport, to no delays in check-in, very smooth take-off, only the odd bump during the spectacular journey to Laos and the quickest journey through bag collection / airport terminal – 3 minutes would be pushing it.

The world heritage city of Luang Prabang in Laos is now awaiting our exploration, although in sympathy for those who are struggling through the snow at home, Chloe has unfortunately got a stinker of a cold.
