Rugged Travel

Breaking news! Our bus has broken down on our way from Pakse to Thakhek, Laos, but don’t worry, another bus will be coming for us soon.

Early this morning, we had an amazing breakfast with coffee from our guest house. After breakfast, we proceeded to load onto a public bus for an eight hour ride north to Thakhek for our last night before entering our second homestay. Halfway through the ride, our bus broke down. We have been waiting for the bus to get fixed for around 3 hours, maybe more. It’s okay though, we had our amazing I-team borrow a motorbike and get us all lunch plus ice cream sandwiches (YAY).
