The Winding Road to Vang Vieng

After my third complete day in Luang Prabang, I decided to venture south toward Vang Vieng. I woke too late to take the morning bus, leaving me the options of taking the night time bus or the van. Having survived two van experiences in Vietnam I decided to go for it. This van experience was more tourist oriented, no rolling around town picking up birds and random locals. The road south goes for 6 hours of curvy road through mountainous terrain, so be prepared to be rocking back and forth the whole time if you ever take this trip.
