With most travel being cancelled for 2020, I took some time to look through some of my photos from past trips. It’s a great way to reminiscence on places and people, and perhaps find some insight which I missed out because I was busy catching up with work after a trip.
Laos is like a diamond in the rough. As the most under developed country in South East Asia, you don’t find that many tourists compared to the more popular destinations like Bali or Bangkok. Which in my view is also a good thing, since it doesn’t suffer so much from the negative effects of over tourism. Looking through photos from my visit to Laos last year, I saw a recurring theme in these portraits where the relationship between pairs of people and animals is explored.
It’s not hard to fall in love with Laos because of the friendliness of the people and the laid back lifestyle. For those of you who are interested in exploring Laos in the future, here are a couple of my past blogs: Luang Prabang, Mekong River cruise.
