Nice to meet you the other week Gavo, looking forward to the rest of the report.
Likewise always good to chat to a fellow ADV member.
Ok , awoke early (25th Oct) no coffee, no breakfast , which was supposed to be included. Just a word here, Jim Barbush could not understand what went wrong at this hotel as it's normally very good, he apologized and refunded our money for the hotel, shit happens and we don't blame Jim.
Anyway, early start
About 20ks down the road we stopped in a village where breakfast consisted of some orange drink that was kind of like juice and B.B.Q chips mmmm
The shop and owner
another quick stop for a chainlube , 3 bikes 3000 kip and away we went.
A bit misty this morning and my wife didn't notice this until we were next to it
scenery as good as ever,lots of villages
Then we came to another ferry crossing
Not everyone gets to ride first class
then some dirt road
we stopped at this village for a break
Just after this that truck with the pigs had pulled up and the owner was spraying them with a hose to cool them funny thing was the hose just looked like it ran into a random field, must have been a pump hidden somewhere.
This bridge out side Luang Prabang
The maps and routes Jim put in my GPS were brilliant had no trouble finding the hotel. (recommended) Villa Phathana
And a little quiz, What's wrong with this picture
