Huay Xai to Luang Prabang, Laos, may 04 – may 06, 2011

If you can bear the stream of backpackers and uncomfortable seats for two days, you'll be rewarded with beautiful scenery on the mighty Mekong. I loved the boat ride for being in the absolutely stunning nature of nothern Laos, even though I was also happy to have land under my feet again after two long days.
