In Vang Vieng, Laos we had one of the best days of our lives. The river was lined with platforms to jump from, rope swings, and zip lines. Here my friend Ben throws a gainer from a 30 ft platform.
Mid-backflip action in Laos. The day starts by renting tubes and floating down the river where locals pull you in to different bars and restaurants where you can eat, drink, and play until the sun goes down.
Tubers float down the river as I slide down this 200ft long zipline. To make things more interesting we ended up blind folding ourselves so you didn’t know when you would hit the stopper. It made for some pretty funny flips and belly flops.
In Northern Thailand we visited this interactive zoo. We had the opportunity to hold snakes, get kissed by an elephant, and feed a baby tiger.
Black and White Ruffed Lemur. These lemurs are on the endangered species list mainly due to deforestation and habitat loss. This zoo breeds these lemurs and releases them into the wild.
The whole crew celebrates a great day playing in rivers and waterfalls in Northern Thailand.
This off the beaten path location took us into a small Thai town where the locals spoke very little English but were some of the friendliest people we met during our travels. I’m sipping on some homemade Thai whiskey while wielding a genuine Thai machete. We later are pig intestine soup. Needless to say, this was one of our more interesting experiences.
A roadside stand sells local dried fruits and other handmade Thai souvenirs.
Our visit to a Buddhist temple put us is a zen like state as we toured the beautifully manicured grounds and gold Buddha statues.
