Vang Vieng, Laos, a small city surrounded by beautiful limestone mountains, where the nam song river flows and the tourists run wild. I was there for 6 days enjoying everything Vang Vieng had to offer. Tubing in the nam song river, climbing up mountains to view points, scooting around on motorbikes, meant for the street, on rocky dirt roads through small villages making our way to the 5 blue lagoons.
It has been awhile since my last post, and I hope you all forgive me for that, but the fact is, it is hard to think about taking pictures and write creative content, all while trying to “live in the moment” and experience everything through my eyes and not a camera. But sadly we live in a world where if there isn’t a picture it didn’t happen.
To describe SE Asia in a couple of paragraphs is like reading the prelude to a book. The prelude is just the author explaining what the book is about, but if you actually read the book, there is much more than just the prelude, so think of my writing as the prelude to a great book, but I am the only owner of the book in the entire world. I think everyone should have their own books written by themselves, no one else. For me my story has just began. I am 19 now, and every day that passes by, I learn more and more about myself, and the huge world we live in.
I was fortunate enough to get a job serving breakfast in my last hostel, making $3 an hour, and free room and board. It was a good change, doing something productive. I met some very cool people in Vang Vieng, that I am now traveling with to Luang Prabang. That is the great thing about traveling is you meet amazing people and everyone has the same mindset.
