After 2 days with travelers diarrhea and an upset stomach, I booked a 10 hour VIP to the capital. Still not feeling so well in the morning, I decided to proceed with my plans and continue to journey as my visa to Vietnam will start on 1st April and didn’t want to miss out on Vientiane. I originally had planned another route and head to Nong Khiaw and visit the plain of jars in Phonsavahn, but as the rainy season is about to start soon and the weather in LP was already constipated I had to change plans. My pickup from the hostel had to be at 7 am and for some reason they forgot me. I ran to the travel agent which happened to be next door to my guesthouse and knocked on his door. He peeked from behind his desk with a toothbrush in his mouth and toothpaste dripping from the side. I’m going to miss by bus !, I yelled. He quickly arranged for a TukTuk to pick me up and take me to the bus station. The bus was scheduled to leave at 8 but left at 9 for some reason. We proceeded with departure and the 10 hour journey to hell started. A 10 hour spine breaking journey with winding roads and people throwing up every 15 seconds. Despite all the painful bumps along and the smell that was eating the inside of my throat ( not to mention thet stomach was still not that well ), it was upon the 6th hour that the journey through the heavens started. The bus got swallowed into the high peaks of mountains left everybody speechless. My back is still aching from the trip so I decided to take a flight to Hanoi on Saturday as I’m not ready for a 24 hour bus ride, but this trip apart from the pain it was totally worth it to experience the amazing wonders of nature. I arrived in Vientiane safely and got a much needed rest to have some energy for today to explore the city. I will leave some photos from the journey below. Stay tuned for more updates from Vientiane city.
