Food & Temples: Livin’ the Life in Chiang Mai and Luang Prabang

Life after Singapore has been a fantastic mix of bananas, coconuts, bananas, mangos, bananas, smoothies, banana pancakes, nutella, and other assorted good foods.  Yes, after flying to the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai, we stayed there for nearly a week (eating good food, of course!), then flew to the equally laid-back town of Luang Prabang, Laos, where we stayed for close to another week.  Can you guess what we did there?

Yep, we ate.  And walked.  That’s the other thing we have been doing a lot of lately: walking around, taking in the sights.

Most recently, we’ve just completed the two day journey of taking the slow boat up the Mekong River to the northern Lao town of Huay Xai.

Here's everybody taking the slow boat up the Mekong.  Hooray, adventure!

We’ve met many wonderful people from around the globe recently.  What a treat this trip is.  We keep reminding ourselves that there are still many months of adventure in front of us!

Here’s a short glimpse into what we’ll be doing over the next few days, YouTube style (minus the TNT explosion, of course.)

Over and out!  Free high fives to anybody who correctly guesses where we’re headed after Laos!
