Welcome to my local adventures in Laos and elsewhere. A blog for travellers, expats and those who want a glimpse into local life in Vientiane, Laos and surrounding South East Asia.
I’m Marie, an Australian who has lived in Asia for over ten years (mainly in Indonesia – North Maluku and Jakarta) where I began my addiction for coffee and collecting local textiles (particularly anything Indigo!). I started travelling to Laos in 2011 and was lucky enough to make the laid-back capital of Vientiane my home in 2015. My passion for photography and long-standing love of markets and streetfood often sees me getting off the beaten track, more often than not travelling solo with my trusty camera, connecting to the local people, customs and of course, local food!
With so many amazing travel blogs out there, you may wonder why I started this blog… I don’t expect to compete with the larger travel sites, but rather offer you a local’s knowledge and insider tips on living and travelling in Laos and South East Asia. This blog aims to help you enjoy local adventures and travel in Laos by exploring the best coffee and food in town, festivals, cultural activities and those quirky tips that may any trip worthwhile.
So, if you are looking for an insider’s knowledge, tips and reviews, join me as I live, work and travel throughout this little country that I love!
Stay with me, tag a friend, and stay tuned for what life in Laos has to hold ….
