It’s like the mountains are breathing on a cold day.
I want to reach out and grasp on to those fingertip trails of grey.
We are in the middle of a seven hour drive from to Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang and it’s such a pleasure to sit back and watch all this scenery from the window. It’s hard to believe I’m seeing all this with my own eyes rather than through a screen of some sort.
The bus stops and we’re told by our guide, Beam, there’s a good photo opportunity coming up. The way she’s smiling, you can tell she’s excited for us.
It is absolutely breathtaking.
To demonstrate just how beautiful this place is -this is the view from the toilet.
We walk further down, I don’t think anyone can quite believe what we’re seeing.
There are so many shades of green and blue – from the darkest navy to a surprising teal; from bottle green to the pale green of the nearby shrubs. I try to take it all in. I wish I could tell you I had all these mighty, magnificent, thoughts to match about the wonders of our planet but all I could think was wow.
I may not have held on to the clouds, but I feel like the gasp I let out upon seeing that view is still lingering in the air up there and joining the mountains breathing.
