A few years ago I read an article about this hidden spot in the jungle of Laos, where there is no law and adventurous backpackers could find a retreat from society, get high every day and tube down a river watching the stars 🏞🌌 well it changed a lot since then. 😅

Vang Vieng became the party capital of Southeast Asia until the government shut it all down, due to disrespect, pollution and a bunch of drug deaths... nowadays the town itself tries to survive on standard tourists and seems kinda chill. 🤔

We cycled 20km out in the surrounding valley and found the rural idyll I had hoped for.

Good days with my honneybunny @nhiphantastic time to say farewell 😭 for now 😘

Imagine a hot savanna day in East Africa. The only breeze coming from a wide river. A huge village on the banks with French colonial buildings, some renovated, some from past times. Theravada Buddhist temples in between. This is Viangchan to me...

Charôn, a son of Erebos, the aged and dirty ferryman in the lower world, who conveyed in his boat the shades of the dead across the rivers of the Akherousia in Haides. For this service he was paid by each shade with an obolus or Danake, which coin was placed in the mouth of every dead body previous to its burial... Fortunately my boatman was amiable and the journey through this Laotian mountain crest ended after a 7km pitchblack ride in another valley 🌄

Where it all began... 10th century AD. Đinh Bộ Lĩnh unified Vietnam by defeating the 12 rebellious warlords and became the first emperor 🏞

Touchdown. My little bike trip across the northern highlands of Vietnam came to an end. Taking a break in famous Sa Pa 🖼

I had my first encounters with these stunning women, one of the reasons I made my way up to this remote area. There have been people of distinctly different cultures living in the mountainous regions of Southeast Asia. Known generally as ‘Hill Tribes’, they who have been rendered stateless over the last several decades, retain their distinct way of life and continue to speak their own languages even as the controlling nations continue to disenfranchise and force them to assimilate. Bravo!

'You need a driver's license!' they said... 🙄 well, to be honest, I almost killed a Vietnamese near Hanoi and I flew off a few times, but that's how you learn. 🤷🏼‍♂️
I named her 'Dê Núi'! 🐐
