We’ve had nine glorious nights on the beach here on the Andaman Sea (first Phuket, and now Ko Lanta). Now that we are tan again, we are ready to go see some temples. We have a full travel day ahead of us tomorrow: mini-bus (including two ferries) from Ko Lanta to Krabi airport, short flight to Bangkok, slightly longer flight to Vientiane, Laos.
We don’t know how long we’ll be spending in Laos and we don’t have a guidebook yet (unless you count the really bad one that we downloaded the other day). But we have booked two nights in Vientiane and three in Luang Prabang, although based on everything I’ve heard I expect that we’ll extend our stay in the Luang Prabang area for a few more nights.
