I had to get out of Laos as my visa was expiring and the only way to get a new one is to leave the country and then come back. Rather than make the costly trip to Thailand only to spend an hour on the other side and then come back, I figured I'd go to Thailand to do something a bit more productive with my time. I went to learn thai massage. With Steph, my friend from home in Luang Prabang but also heading to Chiang Mai, we hopped on a slow boat from LP to Pakbeng, Laos. A 10+ hour boat ride that creeps along the Mekong. A beautiful and peaceful day. When we arrived at sunset in Pakbeng, I wrote these words down.
After a 11hour boat ride up the Mekong we pulled into Pak Beng in the near pitch dark night and I sat smiling thinking to myself "this is my life and I love it."
And I do!
