SunSoaked-1

Finally, some sun! (Although, would you even know it, from my ridiculously pale skin?) Seriously, the only, only time I get eyed up in Thailand is when I walk past skin whitening clinics in the mall. No joke! And I am trying to tan. I’ve even been wearing tanning oil when I go outside – but I guess this is it! Oh well, pale and interesting, pale and interesting!

My husband’s birthday was a week or so ago, so we spent the evening out, before crashing at our hotel for the night. My favourite part was absolutely when we hung out poolside drinking cocktails (they are really cheap in Thailand, it’s awesome!) I tried out my new bikini from Kopper & Zink. I’ve never heard of them before, but the cut on the bottoms is the best I’ve ever had! I definitely want to pick up another of their designs!

Apparently, April is when it gets really, really hot here. As in 45+ degrees celsius! There had better be some more swimming pool visits in store! (Otherwise, you’ll find me as a pile of melted person. Eep!)

Anyway, here I am in all my pale-ness! 😉

The-Streets-of-Vientaine-1

Welcome to Vientiane, Laos!

After being in Thailand around a month or so, we decided to pop over the border and give Laos a visit. I had been before as a kid, but couldn’t remember anything at all about it – because at the time I picked up a horrendously nasty case of food poisoning and was hospitalised. Actually, my only memory of Laos was a dehydration hallucination I had of Joey Tribiani giving me a giant cheque. Um, yeah, so I was MIGHTY excited to give it another go – preferably not as a sicko!

We only had a couple of days to explore, so we hired an electric bike (SO much fun!) and whizzed around the central city. The French influence on the architecture and signage is beautiful, and although I was excited to put my high school knowledge to good use, it turns out none of the locals speak en Francais.

In all honesty, besides visiting an array of incredible temples, most of my time was spent eating pizza. Seven, yes, seven pizzas were consumed over the span of three days! You might think that I wouldn’t be able to make eye contact with a pizza ever again.. but if Pomodoro Pizza was presented any time soon, I would absolutely be there (please guys, move to Thailand!)

All in all; I enjoyed this a LOT more than I did being a kid.. even if there was no Joey Tribiani or giant cheque this time! 😉
