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…

Q5 4NR Day 09 : Pakse - Thakhek

“Nothing is more beautiful than the smile that has struggled through the tears…” - Demi Lovato

(A public transport between towns)

Day 09: Monday, 05 Dec 2016
Route: Pakse - Thakhek
Distance: 336 km
Hotel: Villa Thakhek

After refueling in Pakse we started riding towards Thakhek around 9:00 am. Although the road is good, we rode with great care as there were buffaloes, cows and dogs crossing the road unexpectedly. 

We stopped at Paksong to refuel and rest. The owner of the petrol station was very friendly and helpful and tried very hard to assist with his little English. We arrived in Thakhek town around 2:30 pm and went to have a heavy lunch at Sabaidee Sunset Restaurant by the Mekong River before we checked in Thakhek Travel Lodge for Kip100000/night. 

We were lucky to get a room as the resort was fully booked for tonight. As we did not make any reservations, we settled with a room without air-conditioning.
