Welcome to Laos!
When I first came to Asia as a high school exchange student at the age of 17, I spent a year in Northeast Thailand, also known as Isaan.
This was the first step toward my love for the region, and since then my thirst for exploring rural villages, dense forests, hidden beaches, steep mountains and urbans jungles has not come anywhere near to an end – nor has my hunger for spicy food and the accompanying local drinks and friendly people!
After studying and working in Thailand, Nepal, The Netherlands, India, and Myanmar – my new home became Laos.
This small mountainous country, rightly seen as a sleeping beauty, has always had a special place in my heart. During my first trip to Laos, I explored the roads from Vientiane over Vang Vieng to the UNESCO heritage town of Luang Prabang by motorbike – one of the most scenic roads I have ever been on.
Stopping for some snacks on the road side, having a chat with the locals over one or more Beer Lao and learning about the diverse mountain minorities (160 ethnic groups, speaking 82 distinct languages) has set my curiosity to see more.
