I arrived in Laos through the Lao – Thai Friendship Bridge. There was almost no-one there but a couple of tourists that I’ve met again in Luang Namtha, my first destination. I had decided to go jungle trekking in this area, when I met a really cool French guy, Norbert.

He and I decided to travel together for a little bit, from the Luang Namtha jungle, to the 4000 islands, via Luang Prabang and its fantastic multi-stage Kuang Si waterfall, and the 2 famous scooter ride loops: the Thakek loop and the Bolaven Plateau. A lot of tourists and a lot of fun on those loops, with some crazy Lao drivers (especially by night).

One of the most typical and remote places we’ve been was a small riverside village called Muang Ngoi Neua, where we went even further by cycling and hiking to a small place where we fished and hunted with some local villager. One of my best memories so far!

Thanks Norbert, my friend for this great time!
