There was a small layover between Vang Vieng and Chiang Mai in Luang Prabang. I decided to first go for breakfast at my favorite cafe and then photograph some of the temples I missed on my first stop here. This temple was really pretty despite the some what horrific art work on the side. Happy to have ventured outside of the airport to see some more of this place before I had to say goodbye for good.

La Pistoche – Luang Prabang, Laos

There aren’t really any beaches to speak of in Luang Prabang so I was pretty excited when I heard the words “swim up bar”. Usually the whole swim up bar thing is a little gross but when its 30+ outside with 80% humidity your standards change pretty quickly.. well lets be honest your standards are at an all time low at any given moment in south east asia.. Anyways this bar/pool deal was a good time and I’m super happy I discovered it!

More From Laos


These photos were taken in Luang Prabang which was my first stop in Laos. I don’t know why I didn’t take more photos while I was here. Such an insane amount of beauty tucked away in the mountains. I may sound like a broken record but for real if you go to S.E.A. you simply cannot miss Laos. Beautiful country filled with beautiful people.

Laos was hands down the most beautiful part of this trip and it’s crazy to me that I haven’t posted anything on it yet. I’ve been editing like crazy and have a few ready finally. There are so many more to come but this is a start. These were taken in Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng. I have a hard time picking a favorite because they were both so gorgeous. Definitely worth the trip to go there if you are doing the S.E.A. route.

Booked & Ready To Go!


So much to do in the next three weeks that if I didn’t have something so incredible to look forward to I would be going completely crazy! One of the many amazing things about South East Asia is that you don’t really have to (or want to) bring anything, the weather is perfect everyday so clothing is kept to a minimum and let’s be honest  this girl isn’t going on many hiking excursions so flip-flops should do me just fine.  We booked our extremely last-minute flights yesterday, joys of having a wonderful boyfriend with a not so wonderful *ahem unpredictable* job 🙂 so I guess it’s really happening! As per usual it won’t feel real until we are on our way to the airport but  oh how I love having that ticket in my hand. The plan is to land in Bangkok then head straight to a beach, our friend will be traveling with us for the first 12 days so we will take it easy in the beginning then get down to checking as much as we possibly can off the list…Yes, there will  be a South East Asia 2013 Bucket List. Here’s a few photos of what I am looking forward too!

Tying Up Loose Ends


Well it’s finally official! I have given notice at my apartment and job, taken care of everything I will need for the next month and bought a backpack.. Thailand 2013 WOOT!   The thought of landing in Bangkok just gives me butterflies I can’t believe we are going back already, even though it feels like a million years ago it really has only been 4 years since I flew home from Asia. There really is no better feeling than preparing for a big journey is there? The anticipation kills me.
