Vang Vieng, Laos

So much has happened since the last blog post… Thailand > Cambodia > Thailand > Laos, cycling, seeing, non-believing. I’ve started posts but haven’t finished them… too much detail to cover in single entries! Highlights include going to Cambodia to visit the Angkor Wat temples, traveling between cities by speed boat, visiting the capital Phnom Penh & learning about the national tragedies of the Pol Pot regime at the Killing Fields, cycling over the Thai-Laos border and up to my current location of Vang Vieng, which is just pretty & laid back. I’m recharging (while tubing, caving, and kayaking) for my next 3-4 day ride starting Tuesday, which will be among the stiffest in my career, to Luang Prabang, then West, back out to Thailand (800km+ to go!)

To get this ball rolling, I’m posting a few pics from today. I’ll get to yesterdays tomorrow. I AM managing to post twitter updates (which you can see on the right or track @anthonyp)… will try harder to update, i promise!  I did also update My [tempermental] Travel Map.  It’s hard when you’re having fun, or passing out at 6pm from exhaustion, to work! Or maybe it’s just too much play. Ah, Happy autumn feom the tropics!
