Lao Bao to Hue

After a coffee in the morning it was time to head to Lao Bao and cross into Laos for a very brief stay.

Laos is not my favorite country to visit but given it's so close I would visit it more often just for fun if they would stop charging $35 for a visa and instead give a free 2 week visa.

Still, this time it had to be done and it is still cheaper to do this than fly out somewhere to renew my visa in Vietnam.

The ride back to Hue was nice and without rain. Lots of great driving on the roads from Khe Sanh to A Luoi and then the road to Hue is also better now and nicer to drive on.

Da Nang to Khe Sanh

My usual drive on Thursday takes me from Da Nang to Hue. This time however it was just the start for a road trip to Khe Sanh.

It started with great weather and a nice drive to Hue and from there halfway to A Luoi, when it started pouring down.

While it mostly stopped raining after a lunch break in A Luoi, it was still a bit mixed in terms of weather.

The clouds and rain however made for some great views of the jungle covered mountains.

Despite the rain and taking it easy at times, I got to Khe Sanh before it got dark.

Double Rainbow

Driving from Hue and Da Nang is a regular occurrence for me and while it should be pretty boring by now, there is always a surprise and the road is never the same.

Especially once you get to Lang Co and the Hai Van Pass, the views are always great and never the same.
