What you’d rather be seeing – Laos

A fantastic couple of weeks in Laos, even though we were only in two main locations we managed to fit a lot in.  Below are my favourite pictures and my first video in this category from the short time we were there. Check out the other pictures from previous countries under “what you’d rather be […]
