Day 1 of our 3 day journey to Luang Prabang

sunny 29 °C
View Great Escape to the East! on Tam-Jo's travel map.

We got up early this morning so that we could have a final trip to Breakfastworld before our minibus pickup...I know...we're completely obsessed! Some speed eating was in order though as our taxi got completely lost on the way there. But we still had time for some cocoa pops, a small cooked breakfast and a catch up with Simran and Alex who we had convinced to join us there!


Nothing much to report on for the rest of the day. We sat in a minibus for most of it, but did we did make a couple of stops to see Thailand's highest hot spring and to visit the the White Temple near Chiang Rai which was just beautiful. Quite a comfy journey although Jo had to put up with the woman next to her covering her whole face with a huge scarf any time that Jo coughed. Awkward!

We're now in our hotel for the night. Jo's been for a swim, we've eaten some noodles, went for a quick walk in the area (there is nothing here!) and will probably try and watch a Harry Potter film on the laptop tonight!

Up early tomorrow for the overland border crossing into Laos!

Really enjoyed cating up on the blog! About an hour well spent this morning at work! This is the random temple I was trying to describe to you, with all the hands reaching up...really weird. Hope you both enjoy Laos!! it was one of my favourite places, very chilled out. xx
Ps Jo, where on earth did you manage to go swimming in chiang khong? I remember it almost like a port town minus the sea?
