Lao – The Most Bombed Country – Ben Around the World Diary – Day 138 – 23 October 2019

– Location- Guest House – Phon Sa Van
– Weather- 24-30 cloudy until 11 – cooler up on the plains

After another morning of climbing, this time in the cool clouds gripping to the edge of the forests I got my dues. A long sweeping descent down out of the clouds into Phon Sa Van. As I came into town the road was lined with groups of women and men in dark blue overalls. Their shoulders emblazoned with flags for UK Aid. The uniform was for MAGS one of the organisations working to clear the most bombed country from this terrible legacy of the Vietnam war.

Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
