There are wonderful sites and then there are parasites…..

For anybody that was wondering why I had fallen silent on my trip, unfortunately I committed the cardinal traveller’s sin of ingesting some pesky parasites.

To be honest, they would have probably floored one of the elephants that I will sadly not now get to get close to in Laos, suffice to say I have been the sickest I have ever been.

Happily after four days confined to barracks with no food I am getting better but will not be fit to fly until Tuesday, putting paid to our much anticipated trip to Luang Prabang.

A great shame, but this means we will have more time in Bangkok, so not exactly boring!

Such is life.



  1. Wishing you better so you can enjoy more!

  2. Ugggh, feel better!

    1. I am nearly there now thank you.
