Getting lost and getting wet in Laos

So after a daily lazy morning we decided to go on to do a bit of adventuring. Sam, the guy who seemed to be running the place gave us directions...go up behind your bungalow, past the solar water heater tanks, through the bamboo gate. Follow the path through the forest, turn right until you get to the rest spot.... the there was something about a stile and a place with a red roof, to be honest, I am not good at following verbal directions at the best of times and of course there was no map...

We made it through the bamboo forest...


And found the rest stop, the views were amazing, looking over the Mekong valley... One of the cool things was that there are no scary creepy crawlies or dangerous animals round, so wandering off by yourself is fairly safe...


Then we followed the path...


And totally didn't find a stile or a building with a red roof, we did find one with green walls though. We wandered around for a bit, we weren't completely lost since we could have easily traced our steps back to the resort, instead we carried on until we found a road which came out near one of the villages - hurrah!


We managed to wander back to the hotel without a search party being sent out for us. By this time it was late afternoon and it had warmed up a bit so Ebi-kun decided he wanted to go swimming in the pool, but first a bit of yoga...



Yasutoki went in the pool with him, a braver man than I, the water was cold! But looking at the place you can't blame Ebi-kun for wanting to go in..


They did have the place to themselves but they didn't last long...


And as they shivered in the pool, I sat back and enjoyed a rather strong gin and tonic! Cheers!


The next day was our last in Laos before we headed off to Cambodia...new adventures in a new land.
