Loving Laos! Our Luang Prabang trip

My darling husband has been working extremely hard lately, so when he mentioned that he had to go to Laos for a few days for work and asked if the kids & I would be up for a trip, I jumped at the chance. I’ve always thought it would be so wonderful and exotic, even before we moved to Asia…so I was excited to cross a new country off our “to-do” list. We stayed at a GORGEOUS hotel called the Luang Say Residence, which I have to say really was a big help to traveling with the two little ones…the grounds and buildings are new but built to look like an old colonial estate. I am obsessed with that style and so walking around was like heaven for me….and the fact that they didn’t mind our two monsters running around during dinner was a huge plus :)

There is a daily tradition in Laos called the Buddhist Alms Giving Ceremony. Monks from all the temples in town walk to the center to collect money “alms” from residents (and tourists interested in being part of the tradition) and then make their way back to their temples. The daily event starts before sunrise so I had to be up really early to get in position, but I have to say the experience was well worth it….I really hope it won’t be our last visit! xhlk
