I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

DMK: Vientiane, Laos - Xino, Laos

"The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention..." - John Burroughs

Day 5 - ( 22/10/2012 - Monday)
Route: Vientiane - Xino, Laos
Distance: 640km
Hotel: Lattanaphonephasouk Hotel, Xino

(Off-roading for 78km...)
(Dry and dusty...)
(Better part of the route...)

We planned to ride early but the hotel provided breakfast only at 0730. To safe time we took an alternative dusty and rough off-road route of 78km and managed to cross the distance safely. We stopped at a small grocery shop to freshen-up and rest before we proceeded through the normal trunk road. Stopped at Pakxan petrol station for last refueling and rode on towards Pakse. It was already dark and dangerous to ride Laos trunk road at night as you have to be at all time alert of pedestrians, motorists and even cows and dogs crossing the road.

(A 4x4 vehicle following close...)
(Solat time, any where possible...)
(Dangerous riding at night...)

We decided to check-in a hotel in Xino and had simple dinner of white rice with our own food brought from home. Some bikers managed to wash their motorbikes to get rid of mud and dust.

The off-roading made us so tired and tonight we slept like tired dogs..
