Overland Ride - Thailand/Laos
I am a rider based in Northern thailand and enjoy vlogging/blogging and photographing some of the stunning places in the north.
Recently I took a ride into Laos and I have a new video up on YouTube, for those interested in this kind of thing: https://youtu.be/ChhEPdVsmv4 (The preview audio isn't good, but don't worry, the YouTube audio is clear!)
In this video I invite you to join me on a 2000 km overland loop from Chiang Mai, Thailand, into Northern Laos and back to Chiang Mai. My primary goal for this trip was to obtain a new Thai visa from the Thai Embassy in the Laos capital of Vientiane. (It was a rather rushed and unplanned situation, due to some issues with my previous Thai visa, which had to be cancelled.)
This ride turned out to be an adventure with a comedy of errors unfolding. This meant that certain original plans for this trip had to be altered, but nonetheless, it was still fun!
I ride through stunning scenery and some challenging roads of Laos, and explain the background history of the places I visited.
Subtitles are available, for those who may struggle with my accent!
Hope you enjoy this video.

Thanks all. My best!
