End of the Road


Johann & Sandra in Luang Prabang, Laos

During our 3 month trip to China and South East Asia, we had the opportunity to visit 6 different countries.

In China, we experienced 9 cities, all spread out across the country. We went on motorcycles to the Great Wall, explored the temples, monasteries and the magnificent Potala Palace in Lhasa, cruised the amazing landforms of the Li River, explored the fascinating history of the Terra Cotta Warriors, and watched as the sun set over Hong Kong, one of the world's most beautiful and lovely skylines.

Thailand was just wonderful; the people - so kind, the food - sooooo good, white water rafting in Chiang Mai - absolute fun, "mahouting" in the Golden Triangle - oh amazing, and eyeing Sukhothai ruins - truly spectacular.

While in Laos, we really enjoyed the city of Luang Prabang as we visited hillside villages and met up with local people. Just beautiful scenery all along the way, multi colors of green everywhere, difficult to describe really, very remote from the world, yet so present, with people and nature flowing together as one.

Vietnam was as beautiful as the "talk on the street" goes. Truly a country filled with rich and revealing history and a developing present. We motorbiked in the countryside of Hoi-An, especially fun when "somebody" fell off his bike (heh heh heh),  toured the Mekong Delta by bike for 3 days, cruised on a "junk" on Halong Bay, scenery so unique, and explored the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels just outside Saigon.

Cambodia is a country that is still very much in the forefront of development, investment and expansion. Although a recent horrific past, there is much to celebrate about the current people and its rich culture. Angkor Wat is truly in a league of its own. Wow, the magnificent sight is difficult to express in words.

Overall, we had a spectacular time during our first trip to the far East, and we are very grateful and appreciative of all the people, incredible guides, and friends we have come across. Your kindness will never be forgotten, thank you from the bottom of both our hearts to all of yours.

Best, Johann & Sandra
