We eventually wanted to get to Vientiene, but not only did we not fancy a 5000 hour bus journey, we also wanted to see some of south/central Laos. So …
After what seemed like weeks, we were finally in Laos. Luckily, the closest place to the border is also the most relaxing – the 4000 Islands.
We knew the crossing overland from Cambodia to Laos wasn’t going to be easy or quick, but it managed to be harder and slower than we could have ever imagined.
