Retirement in the summer of 2004 left us free to travel for longer periods of time.  Our first extended trip took us to Myanmar and on to Laos.  Where we very much enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, From Nong Khai in Thailand we travelled to Vientiane, up to Luang Prabang via Vang Vieng which despite all the negative things we had read about it, we loved.   From Luang Prabang we went to Phonsovan and the incredibly moving Plain of Jars then  back to LP and up the Nam Ou River and all the way to the Chinese border via Luang Namtha.  We ended up down South with a week on the twin Islands of Don Det and Don Khon, perfect.  It was a wonderful trip, so much so that as I write this in August 2007, I am about to embark on another extended trip to North and South East Asia and will be introducing my oft times travelling companion Barbara to the delights of Lovely Laid Back Laos.
After leaving Laos Tony went into Thailand to start a dive course and I went alone to Cambodia.  With only a short time available I was only able to spend 3 days at Siem Reap, and a couple in Phnom Penh.  I will be back in Siem Reap in October 2007, hoping for clear blue skies and a break in the rain to get better photos of Angkor Wat.   A much longer trip will have to wait for another year.
