Living in a village on the edge of Vientiane the last 10 years, I have travelled widely in every Province of Lao PDR, most of them many times, so am familiar with the country as a whole, including many places "off the beaten track".
I have enjoyed living and travelling full time in many countries over the last 25 years, mainly in South and SE Asia, Melanesia & Polynesia, Europe & Australasia.
I still take 3-4 months off work each year to travel, usually by bicycle or motorbike.
