After 22 hours of flying thousands of miles and a stop in Bangkok, we arrived finally early in the morning in lovely Vientiane, the capital of Laos. We checked a guesthouse with tripadvisor; to feel a bit like in Germany, we decided for the Bayern Guesthouse.
As we didn’t have so much time in Laos, there was no time for a rest and we had to find a TukTuk to see the „must-have-seen“-sights in Vientiane before to had a chance to come together with some local people. At the end, this was a horror trip, 19 people in a MiniVan for 7,5 hours, partly without AC, bumpy road and absolutely no space to move anywhere…
The most impressive thing to see in Vientiane (close, but 30 min outside of Vientiane) is the Buddha Park. This one is quite famous and if you only have time for few things, go there…
Finally after Vientiane, we took a MiniVan with 19 other people in it and drove up to Luang Prabang, the former capital of Laos.
Another weekend trip was in early May to Dublin in Ireland. The idea for that trip was already quite old, but we needed some time to get a perfect flight from a time perspective.
Arrived Friday night we straight went into pub area for some food and drinks. The beautiful thing in Dublin is, that you never walk more than 5 min to find a suitable pub.
Also nice old in Dublin are the old buildings like the Dublin castle, various churches and the old town with its pubs in general.
Maybe for people from Dublin or UK as well, it is nothing special, but from a German perspective, it’s obvious that Dublin people have nice colorful doors and entrance areas in general.
Early March we spent a weekend in beautiful Lisboa. As weather was still not nice in Germany, we had a windy but very sunny sky in Lisboa. It was already around 20° C and clear sky.
As this weekend trip was a present for a good friend of us, we spent the weekend together – all three of us.
Again a very good experience with Airbnb and Uber. Hopefully Germany is able to catch up here as well.
Last day before heading back to Lisboa airport, we spent at the beach in the south west of the city. Still windy but sunny.
