(VIDEO) Laos – As We Travel Show – Ep.3

Laos was a crazy few weeks - we explored some amazing ethnic villages up in Luang Nam Tha – held on for dear life during over 30 hours of crazy bus trips up and down the steep mountains in northern Laos …

BUT worst of all was the fact that we lost over 400 gig and 2 months worth of film.

This was really hard to deal with, so we didn’t film for about a week while in Laos, but once we arrived down south in Pakse – we started filming again, and this episode is about our adventures down in Southern Laos – hope you enjoy! :)

    These episodes keep getting better and better! Love the AWT shirt!!! Love the adorable kids. Love the magnificent scenery. Don’t love that you lost footage. I know what that feeling is like and it’s painful. A good lesson in impermanence and detachment though right? Sooo excited to see the next episode and I definitely want to visit Laos now. XOXO

    GREAT video! Beautiful scenery. I hope this convinces more people to visit southern Laos — then again, it’s pretty nice as is, with so few tourists! While I don’t love Laos nearly as much as Cambodia, Vietnam and Thailand, the south is a very special place. So far from the modern world. Adorable kids, too.

    Nice job — and glad you’re able to put losing your footage behind you. :-)

      Glad you like the video Kate! Laos is a unique place, and I agree, it was very far from the modern world, so amazing to experience!

    Ugh, so sorry you lost a ton of filming! I’m sure that was an awful feeling. But, thanks for picking back up and carrying on. I’ve been enjoying watching the videos, learning a little and seeing more than a picture can show.

    • Sofia - As We Travel March 10, 2011 at 6:45 am #

      Yeah losing all of it wasn’t fun, but “the show must go on” ;)

      I’m glad to hear you’ve enjoyed the videos!
