A random busride in Laos – it’s all part of the adventure!

busride in LaosBusrides in Laos. Oh well.. what can I say? I guess it’s all part of the adventure. It surely tests my patience 🙂

The events in this drawing literally all took place during one and the same busride. After they fully stacked the roof of the bus, I thought we were good to go. But when they started moving all of our backpacks from the storage below, up to the isle in between our chairs, I had to withdraw that conclusion. Appearantly, putting goats and piglets in the bottom storage of the bus was an option I hadn’t yet consiidered!

    My oh my…..it’s a good thing you have all the time in the world! Gemiddeld elke 10 km een stop……lijkt mij ook niet “je van het”.

    Hello, Lilian!! I am really enjoying hearing these stories of your travels and all of the artwork that goes with it!! I agree with your dad too, the addition of colors to your journal entries is wonderful!! I have been following you mostly on Instagram, but I thought it would be nice to leave a message for you here.

    Looking forward to hearing more about your beautiful and intriguing adventures through Asia!

    Oh Lil…that story of the pigs and goats on the bus had me really laughing! :>) It may have seemed like a nuisance at the time, but years from now it probably will be one of your favorite (and funniest) memories.
