A painful fellow passenger can’t take away from the fantastic scenery of travel on the Mekong River.
🤣🤣 Well played Dutch couple!
Ha ha! I can relate to that story, big time
Bloody Aussies eh?
"This is the worst aspect of the competitive traveller—an inability to understand that travel is different things to different people and that, well, it isn’t a competition." - nice.
Hi Stuart. Pleased to see it's not just us Poms that are the whingers ;-) Which beaches on KPN? Can you remember. Looking forward to Luang Prabang. We loved it there! J & J (tracking a few days behind at the moment!)
I did the slow boat with my kids a few years ago and we sat up on two padded benches facing each other with the locals. Conversation was limited but it was a vast improvement on sitting with the backpackers, who were blasting shit music and getting v drunk up the front. Ugh! But even that couldn’t diminish the beauty of the journey. I loved sitting with my legs hanging over the side, buffalo (or whatever they are) spotting!
Great trip have done it up river and down river and will do it again.
