This was one of my fears of going travelling. The fear became real to me recently, when I heard the sad news that my Nan had died. Losing someone you love is never easy, but losing someone while away, made me feel helpless and guilty.
We’ve been looking forward to Exploring the Bolaven Plateau by Motorbike for months. It’s something we missed out on our last trip to Laos in 2011 during wet-season, as the roads were awful with horrendous landslides and we didn’t have any waterproofs!
We’ve heard of a chap called ‘Koffie’ who lives in Paksong on the Bolaven Plateau – A Dutch expat, coffee lover and connoisseur who runs a coffee shop in town.
So on our 700th day of travel we left the very lazy, I mean laid back Laos and flew to the fast developing Thailand – Chiang Mai to be precise.
