Day 2 of the Slow Boat Journey to Laos
Turns out I should've gotten an earlier start because while the boat didn't leave until 9:30, showing up at 9am was not ideal. Unlike the day before, there was no assigned seating. This means I was STUCK with literally the crap leftovers for seat options. The 'best' worst seat was up front... with all of 2" of leg room. Not 'extra' leg room, just a total of 2".
Nothing eventful to report on the 9 hour day riding the slow boat. It was cold, foggy, cloudy, and overall uneventful. I managed to download a book prior to takeoff, which I finished before we landed in Luang Prabang.

As we neared Luang Prabang, the energy of the boat picked up and we all wanted off of there! It was a cool enough experience, but I don't care if I ride another boat as long as I am here lol.
We got off the boat and were greeted with 100 tuk tuks ready to take us into town. It was a 20 minute ride into town, and when I was dropped off in the city center, I realized I had no where to go. So I found the nearest coffee shop, ordered a smoothie with the intention of hijacking their wifi to find a place to stay. Luck was on my side! I found a place just down the road with my name on it and headed that way.
