Top 6 Things We Learned in Laos

We love Laos and can’t wait to get back someday. Here are a few things we learned while we were there:

1. Just because there’s an “s” at the end of a country’s name doesn’t mean you pronounce it.

2. Never give your kids chocolate milk before taking an 8-hour van ride through the mountains.

3. Do give your kids dramamine before taking an 8-hour van ride through the mountains.

4. Taking a 4- and 6-year-old to the spa with you for a massage is anything but relaxing. Amusing, perhaps, since they view it as getting tickled for an hour, but relaxing, definitely not.

5. If you’re frazzled after your massage with the 4- and 6-year-old, floating in a tube down a lazy river is a perfect stress reliever.

6. This is a place time seems to have forgotten. If you want to capture a little slice of heaven, hurry, because it’s bound to change before too long.

  1. I remember my trip from Vang Vieng to Vientiene – 6 hour bus journey with one stop – toilet break in the middle of nowhere. 50 people looking for 50 bushes to take a leak behind!
