The road from Kasi to Vang Vieng is epic! A relaxed 55km, predominantly downhill through some of the most spectacular limestone mountains we have ever seen. Apart from dramatic rocky outcrops reaching into the clouds around every corner, this region seems to be over-populated with schools, too. We seem to always be a source of amusement for the local kids, but this girl gave Alessia some serious stares as we stopped to admire the view - she must have had a bad maths class or something...

We made it out of the clouds, finally! Changing direction of our route, we are now heading south towards Vientiane then figure out a way to get across to Vietnam. This guy in the photo is one of many mobile scooter traders who cruise through towns selling hot food - their horn/bell relentlessly alerting locals that heโ€™s coming.

Laos: we have climbed more here than anywhere else! The relentless hills keep coming, and the last two days have been spent in the clouds. We rode only 105km but we climbed nearly 3000m, and the legs are certainly feeling it! We got to Phou Khoun and found a guest house for the night, but first we had to crash a local wedding! After being forced copious amounts of BeerLao and impressing the locals with our best Western moves we are off to have yet another Chinese dinner. Everyday is a new surprise! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด

Last night we had a great time in #luangprabang with the awesome @shaped2travel duo.  They left today, going towards Vientiane, while we stay one more day here to collect our Vietnamese visa. In the meantime, we have already booked our stay in Hanoi for Christmas & NewYearโ€™s festivities! ๐ŸŽ„ps: in pic number 3 Alessia missed the memo saying โ€œok, lets all look really boredโ€. ๐Ÿ˜…

Into the hills! After leaving the Mekong, we rolled North to the town of Muang Xai then towards Luang Prabang. The hills of Laos began, as we winded up dense jungle valley roads and swooping descents past rice fields, more forgotten villages and rubber tree plantations en route to Pak Mong. A solid 1400m climbing! The day ended at dusk, with the giant moon poking up over the mountain tops while the villagers lit small fires along the road to keep warm.

๐ŸŒ Cycling in rural Northern Laos is leaving us in awe. During todayโ€™s 80km ride we have seen Chinese-built power plants, beautiful hills covered in banana trees, and dozens of small hill tribes villages. Sadly, poverty prevails in most of them and both people and their houses, made of nothing but worn timber, seem to have been forgotten. We were particularly startled by seeing a woman smoking what seemed to be opium, in a poor village. We have ended up staying in a fairly weird town, not even to be found on Google Maps, but managed to find a guesthouse within a short walk to a place to eat. On entering the restaurant we were greeted with โ€œNi Haoโ€ and quickly noticed that everything was Chinese - the food, the whiskey, the owners. Such a contrasting day makes us thrilled just thinking about what tomorrow will bring.

After a lazy month spent discovering Northern Thailand and catching up with the family (thank you @di3052 & Ron!!) we have finally made it to Laos, our 20th country. We are spending the day in Huay Xai, the border town on the majestic Mekong river, before we start climbing our way to Luang Prabang. Happy rolling everyone! ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด

Throwback Thursday! Itโ€™s been almost a month since leaving Central Asia and we canโ€™t stop thinking about our epic adventure in the vast, remote, high altitude expanse of the Pamir. So much to reflect on and a stage of our journey that will be unforgettable. Get on your bike and ride the Roof of The World!

๐Ÿ”ฅHappy Friday everyone!๐Ÿ”ฅAs we sit in an air conditioned cafe in Chiang Mai, Thailand, we look back at the awesome time we spent through Eastern Europe. And Serbia still sits up there as our favourite country so far. Check the link in bio and enjoy!

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿšฒ Cycling in South East Asia is...taking off your shirt and wringing half a litre of sweat out of it! This is done more than once a day, especially when climbing in the mountains!

Our 4 day loop around Chiang Mai has taken us through mountains, hair pinned roads, swooping descents, rice fields, longan plantations, rural towns, jungle tracks and banana fields. The opposite of where we were a month ago! It's hot and humid, but we are loving it!

We finally managed to move our bottoms out of Chiang Mai to ride the gorgeous Mae Sa loop. Itโ€™s only 100km long, but we are taking our sweet time..most of all because the hills have a 20% incline ๐Ÿ˜‚
