Lisa’s Travel Diary

Location: Hong Kong

MapHi All,

Yes I have been very slack.

Well since I wrote last way back in April a fair bit has happened. I went home for a bit of a holiday and to be a Bridesmaid at Evans wedding, I went up to Luang Prabang again, survived Giadia and took a trip down to Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

The trip home was a lot of fun and very hectic to say the least with only a short time to catch up with everyone.

My trip to Luang Prabang was nice and relaxing, I stayed at the resort just outside of town. It had a pool and sala's which virtually overhung the rice paddies and had day beds in them. I spent most of my time there reading, wandering around the wats and drinking awesome mango smoothies.

Unfortunately, on my last morning i came down with Giardia (a nasty stomach bug) and had to travel home feeling like i was about to die. But a visit to the Australian clinic in VTE sorted it out.

A few weeks later I took a trip down to Cambodia with one of the guys from here at work. It was awesome! The Cambodians are a lot more agressive than the Lao but it was lots of fun none the less. It is certainly a place everyone should go too on their way around asia. Words cannot describe the temples! I will do my best to upload some pictures really soon. I also picked up some fabulous rubbings of the carvings on the temple walls.

I am off to Kuala Lumpur next break to visit Kaia which i am really looking forward to as i will get a chance to do some shopping!! Wahoo!!

And last but not least I have some more news. I have decided to head back to Australia. I have resigned from my job and will be most likely to be heading back in mid to late September. It is a bit sad as I have really grown to love Lao but unfortunately the job has not worked out. Well anyway I am sure I will talk to you all very soon and make sure you come and check out some of the photos I will put up on this site in the next day or so.

Miss you all and I will see you soon!!
