A once in a lifetime journey
From Thailand via Laos and Myanmar
The best is yet to come.
The journey begins at 05.00 A.M., waters of the Mekong beneath one. Crossing over a boarded plank bridge, unstable yet strong enough to carry us, one by one.
Baggage is shifted onto the boat and stowed within. We are around 10 passengers this morning, looking tired.
The engines cranked, 2 powerful Diesels shudder the boat. Slowly it takes off to midstream, leaving the lights of the Laos and Thai shores behind.
Darkness surrounds us, the Captain relies on the sonar and his skills as a pilot.
Great navigating here one must commend him, he has been on the river countless times.
Amazing … but the trip is not over.
A trip you won’t forget ..
