Room hopping

Today we travelled by minivan to Vang Vieng. It was only around a four hour journey but for me, it was horrendous! My first bout of travellers tummy. I spent most of the journey concentrating on not throwing up (thankfully I was successful in this)!

On arriving in Vang Vieng we hopped into a tuk-tuk with everyone else from our minivan for a cheap ride into the town centre. From there, it was a ten minute walk to our hostel. By the time we checked into our room, I was ready to pass out in bed (I wasn't coping well with the bad tummy!). Unfortunately, we ended up moving to three different rooms before we could relax. The mosquito screen in the first room was broken so that was a deal breaker (we are in a malaria zone after all), the beds were literally like rock in the second room (we were being fussy today!), the third room however was "perfect"! It even had reception for the HBO channel (which none of the other rooms managed to achieve despite us stealing a digi box from another room)!

And so I finally got to go to bed! And Yogi Bear the movie was on HBO. Perfect!

Not much else to report on. We made it out down the road for some dinner (which for me consisted of no more than three bites of potato) whist watching some episodes of Friends...a lot of bars and restuarants in the town show Friends and South Park non-stop!

Then an early night! Rock and roll!
