Post #19 Tha Knaek

Day 24 1056 day to go. Distance: today 112km total 1008km. Hi there Just realised I’ve crossed the first 1000km mark that’s a mile stone yay.  Now that was a huge day the road was good but windy wicked and long long long haul.  Did have a great stop at a midway town Hoi Don where there was an awesome morning market and found this great noodle stall selling fresh mint, lime and tofu noodle salad for 2oookip. I indulged 2 for lunch and bough 2 more for dinner later yummmmmm. Anyway was so happy to arrive about 4pm to find a place to stay and get some laundry arranged, showered and pruned for my Christmas Eve date for 5pm. Found a dormitory style accommodation for 30000kip which is great but a bit crappy to share as I’ve been spoil having my own room for a bit more. No complaints but as accommodation is a bit scarce here for some reason – HOWEVER – they do have internet yayayayayayayaya. Unfortunately the connection was crap so we talked briefly and made another date for 8am 25/12/2011.  Found my way down to the water front Tha Knaek is right on the Mekong and was looking out over the city lights of the Thai town across the river bizarre that another country is just over the other side of the river.  Was still hungry after noodles so I found a pancake vendor yum no idea what was inside but it was savory sweet and tasted great.  Then I found another vendor that was selling doughnuts filled with a sweet bean mix yummy again. OK so now I’m full and very sleepy and it’s cold here it would have been about 10degrees and time to high tale it back to the guesthouse and to bed. Happy to be enjoying Christmas tomorrow just chilling out  I’m a bit coldy, tired and homesick given it’s Christmas so it’s an early night to bed sooky lala. Talk soon

If you could dream up the most wildest adventure imaginable what would it be? Between jobs and craving new experience, I decided to indulge the challenge. This is what I conjoured with a promise to come home safe and smiling. I hope you enjoy the 1080 days of stories as much as I will sharing them. "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
