As a North American, most of my friends have travelled to the Caribbean, to Europe and maybe even Africa. But Asia just seems so far away. And there are so many Asian countries to choose from. If I have met someone who has been to Asia, nine times out of ten.... they went to Thailand. Now I LOVE LOVE LOVE Thailand, it's a place that I would even consider moving to... but there are SOOOO many other amazing places beyond Thailand. Which place am I talking about today??? LAOS.
Laos is wedged in between Vietnam and Thailand. It's a gorgeous place filled with lazy rivers, astounding mountains, rolling hills and elephants. If you are a hiker, or just love the outdoors in general, Laos is an amazing place to visit.
