A Lao funeral

We were really sad when Thong phoned us only a few days after we arrived to inform us his mother had just passed away. That day she had been taken from the hospital back to her home to die surrounded by the love of her family and she got her wish only a few short […]

In love with Luang Namtha

Within moments of arriving back in Laos we were reminded of our love for this country. We had been offered food and drink, seats to sit in, and a shady umbrella all in our first 5 minutes back in the country. Then our driver suggested he would wait for us while we ate lunch… everyone […]

Out and about in Luang Namtha

It’s been interesting and amazing to think […]

Totally addicted to Laos

It would seem that we can’t stay away from Laos for too long. We have spent the past month longing for several things in Laos; the amazing, kind, gentle, friendly people, the delicious food, walking down any street and being greeted with smiles and ‘Sabaidee!’, and just the general laidback-ness of the place. Yesterday we […]

Coming “home”

When we arrived back in Luang Namtha we instantly knew that it was the right decision to be here.  It has felt like we have returned home – we have been looking for somewhere like Luang Namtha ever since we left and haven’t yet found it.  We completed our ‘circle’ of Luang Namtha – Nong […]
