Again, I apologize for the lack of blogging the last few days. I couldn’t shake a sinus infection and I was laid up in bed.
Tuesday was a bit of a let down as again we couldn’t get a cruise in Halong bay, just an excuse to come back I guess! We both used the day to rest as it was much needed.
Wednesday I woke up covered in what I think was heat rash, with a migraine and a sinus infection. I decided it wasn’t worth fighting and told Katelyn to carry on without me. She had a great day exploring Hanoi, while I rested the whole day. Although I’m not sure if my body could handle the excitement she endured!
This brings us to today, we woke up early this morning and flew from Hanoi, Vietnam to Vientiane, Laos. We went for lunch then checked in at our hostel, and are now resting (early mornings and I don’t mix). Vientiane seems like a lazy city, from what we’ve seen… and the fact that today is a public holiday isn’t helping that vision out.
The plan for this afternoon is to walk along the Mekong River and then dinner and potentially some pool at the hostel. I’m hoping being able to get out and do things will help me shake this illness and it’s associated mental funk.
