Lessons learned in Laos and Cambodia

Kepala Batas, Malaysia, September 2013

As part of our two year celebration we would like to introduce you to some of the people that have made our bike travel a constant life lesson. These people have opened their hearts to us in ways we cannot even begin to describe. Their contribution to our project is of much value to us so we decided to take this opportunity to make a small homage to them.

We now move on to : Laos and Cambodia

Thanks a lot amigos! Because thanks to you we have strengthened our ties to your beautiful countries and their cultures. Hopefully we will get to see you again!

Chang Sok and Vong from a small town near Ban Hua Na, Laos, taught us how to regather our 32 souls. Papa and Mama from Luang Prabang, Laos, taught us the most important thing in Laos: Take it easy. We met Martina and Tim from Germany,Vesa and Enni from Finland, Teng from France and Juan from Argentina in Luang Prabang, Laos. They taught us that a hot sauna on a hot day can indeed be something refreshing and that unexpectedly loud farts always come out when there is a moment of silence. Eg and Wasenar from somewhere south of Vang Vieng, Laos, taught us that rush won't lead us anywhere, it will only stress us. At least whilst in Laos. Meng and his sister from Ban Phonsoung, Laos, taught us some tricks in Chess. Andee from Savannakhet, Laos taught us everything about Vietnamese Noodlesoups, Lao Monasteries and the guesthouse business. This little fella and his younger brother from ban Phosay, Laos,  motivated us to keep on promoting bike travel. We have definitely inspired them to do one. Mister Tho and his family from Don Det, Laos, showed us that there is always a little time for a game of Boccia with friends. We made a lot of friends from a lot of places in Don Det, Laos. They taught us that for a house-party with selfmade dinner it is not necessary that somebody actually lives in a house or owns a kitchen. Imporvisation can be much more fun sometimes. We met Rebecca and Axel from Germany in Stung Treng, Cambodia. They taught us a lot about the Khmer, the way of life in the countryside and where to find the tastiest fruit shakes. Bunny from O Krieng, Cambodia taught us not to hesitate and to take the opportunities as they come. We met Nimrod from Israel in Siem Reap, Cambodia. He taught us that nothing is impossible.
