Hello X-Phase!

Hello Mekong Yak friends!

Over the next week we will continuing our X-Phase journey! For those who don’t know about X-Phase, X-Phase is a time during our Dragons journey where the student group gets to decide and execute our itinerary.

Below is an overview of our X-Phase including where we have been and where we will be headed!

March 24: We spent the day in Ban Konglor, taking a boat ride exploring the beauty of one of longest caves in the world.

March 25: We travelled from Ban Konglor to Vientiane. We went to the night market near our hostel and tried some new flavors of the city.

March 26: We spent the day in Vientiane, starting our morning off with a walk to COPE where we spent a few hours learning more about the disturbing long term impacts of the Secret War. In the afternoon, we enjoyed free time exploring the city.

March 27: We travelled from Vientiane to Vang Vieng. In Vang Vieng will be enjoying the beauty and focusing on mindfulness through practicing noble silence and meditating.

March 28-29: Vang Vieng

March 30: Travel from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang
