In the night bus, travel from Luang Prabang to Viantiane
Personally, this is the craziest thing I’ve ever made for being travel alone in seven days go overseas. If you ask me that I enjoyed my trip? I’ll say YES but it could be NO too.
Actually, I enjoyed every single step for being alone, nobody knows who I am, use my time alone for reading a book, just relax, see sunset or just feel the air or looking at the moonlight of full moon, enjoyed seating in the bus/train for long hours, see the scenery outside from bus/train, sleepless, and so many opinions play in my mind, yeah I ENJOYED..
But sometime, I am just a human, I need to talk to share what in my mind and what I feel. Yeah, I can speak with other foreigner or local people but it could not deep as friend and then I realized that I am not a person who likes to start talking more but when it happens and I feel enjoy to talk with so I’ll talk and talk, try to follow the dialogue, to understand what they mean, to improve my English and rethink some words that’s wrong and try to correct it in my mind.
In this trip, I made some interactions with people from Canada, the two Canadian, the first I met in the hotel, he stayed at the same hotel with me in Viantiane, he has retired and goes to some countries outside his hometown because he doesn’t have some reason to stay there so why he has to live in Canada with no family, he likes enjoying quite place only for enjoyed time for being lone.The second Canadian, I met in the bus, she traveled alone to Luang Prabang but she will meet her friend there a Japanese (Just say hello but overall I know that they are all are really experienced about traveling). She is really a good listener and appreciate of responding what I talked. Her name Amanda, she works in Bangkok and goes to Luang Prabang for travelling, she looks like not as amateur like me for being traveler, she has visited many places around world. And then I met a couple from Poland they want to spend 3 months to go around before their wedding date in this December, they do honey moon before married, he said because after married he will work and no time to go around, this couple are very experienced and very talk active and speak quickly sometimes I don’t understand what they mean, yeah my English is not good enough.. And met people from Swiss, not too much talking and I know that some of them can speak Bahasa because she has lived in Jakarta for a long time but we shared email and inviting on facebook
And last but not least, I met people from Spain, the two midwives, they work in the hospital, they traveled around Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, they were so kind and let me to join them to go around. Pedro and Manuel, their name, it was pleasure time to meet them, we shared story about our traveling and email.
From it all, I’ve learnt about what kind of people are they, I guessed in my mind, I know a little bit about their behavior..
It was an interesting experience….
