it's good that it's shady, because it's really hot and I am sweating a lot so nice We are almost at the top I can tell you that it's really quiet here.

There is no people no tourists and all of the sudden the jungle went quiet, totally no birds, no bugs I feel weird here but it's nice, so nice On the second day after our arrival, we decided to rent a kayak in the local tourist agency go for a trip up the stream and find a waterfall but our plans got disrupted a bit Alright, so we came to the shore here as the current was really strong and we climb this slope up and we are going – Marta is still climbing to get to the road Here is the road, which we will follow around 4km to the village and then we want to get to the waterfall, so a lot is happening.

We left the kayak down there and we are hitting the road We are sitting on the 'paved' road 😉 by the river with a mountain view – there is nothing here and we are eating lunch there you are We will eat lunch – rice with beef and vegetable yeah, and I have noodles with chicken and egg As we left the kayak to early, due to strong current on the river we had a long way to the village We had to walk 4 km one way more to what we originally planned We have finally got to the village and it's protected by the muddy pigs So cool Gosh, they are luckily scared of us, they are not attacking us Here are chickens, for a dinner 😉 Ducks What an atmosphere, everyone is waving to us some kind of music Oh great, one can buy water here I don't know what's going on but we cannot communicate with those ladies about tickets purchase Those women are weird We are trying to enter.

to the park with a waterfall but the ladies are not getting it When we finally managed to buy the tickets we continued the journey towards the waterfall Check this out This is high life they are lying and chilling out in a mud wonderful We are almost at the destination Soon, we will be.

soaking in those waters amazing It is sooo cold Unfortunately, we couldn't stay longer than around 30 minutes We had to go back and make it to Nong Khiaw before sunset There is a party here Alright, and we are going down there now Two crazy girls Our kayak is waiting for us there We are going back We have around 2 hours to the sunset We have to make it before that Now we are going with the current down the river, so it will be easier What a body and they are still chewing We made it, we've managed to come back in one piece before the sunset so, really good trip We are going to the view point at the other side of the city Today, we are leaving Nong Khiaw and going back to Luang Prabang and tomorrow, we are flying to Bangkok We are coming from over there we are in the clouds now and it's really humid here First, we are going over there Mosquitoes are biting And the view point looks more or less like that Nothing is visible completely nothing We are here around half a hour on this viewing point, and the fog has started to go up Fog or the clouds? I guess it's clouds Something is visible down there More and more is visible The view is changing every minute beautiful The whole city is exposed and the river We were staying over there We were going over that bridge It looks more cool We have arrived at the Nong Khiaw station and we are waiting for our bus to Luang Prabang Check out how this looks like Here is some kind of a board with timetable most likely but I cannot see anything here that I could read.

Only some kind of hours and it's an empty square with 2 tuk tuks and here all the tourists who are going to Luang Prabang are being brought and that's it, nothing else is going on here Here is a ticket office one can buy a ticket here for around 40 kip We are leaving Laos and flying to Thailand for few days to the beach It's been truly amazing here and I really, really recommend this country It's good to travel here but the roads are a bit poor, so it's taking long time to drive even small amount of kilometers but the views and nature is really amazing I love speed so much the speed of take off, is so pushing you into the seat Very small airport in Luang Prabang and the mountains around Here, in the morning it's rather cloudy and around noon it's brighting up and the sky clears out However, the mornings are quite foggy and it's even drizzling so, it's a bit humid OMG, what a view Do you see that? Oh my.

I have never seen anything like it to see mountains above clouds like that something amazing and this is Laos.
