Into the fields in Tad Lo

Tad Lo is a tiny town in southern Laos that can be reached by bus from Pakse. It is also a popular spot on the motorbike loop around the Bolaven plateau. The nature in this area is incredible and in season there are many waterfalls. Tad Lo actually has three waterfalls, but the furthest one is about 10km away. However, you…

My Christmas in the hills

It’s Christmas time and what better thing to do than to get away from it all by joining a trekking trip through the countryside. When you’re travelling, Christmas can be a quite depressing period, even if you aren’t that much into it. Everyone is visiting family and you are just stuck by yourself. That you…

Beautiful Banff with a bird’s eye view

What an amazing day! After travelling on the Moose bus for a while, I hopped off in Banff for a week. One of the other Moose girls was also staying there for a while. She stayed in a different hostel and I found myself walking there almost every day. On one sunny day we decided to…
