Wat Phou is a small temple located on the banks of the Mekong river in southern Laos that is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It's small in size, but its value goes beyond the modern-day borders of Laos as it played a key role in the emergence of ancient kingdoms of the region.
Here's a collection of photos of food in Vietnam. I didn't include much food in my regular updates because it would become an overarching theme, which I want to avoid. I'm not good a describing the taste of things, but you can see what it looks like.
I'm sorry to hear you got sick, but I'm very jealous of the food. So much nostalgia... — by Lana
I think a lot of people that travel in developing countries get food poisoning at some time. What's important is not to let that thought discourage you from trying the dishes that you are not familiar with! — by Olivier

Some travellers I have met have their own travel websites.
Angélique is from France. She and I were planning to cross the atlantic as crewmembers of a sailboat in January 2018. Unfortunately, the plans to sail together fell through, which you can read about in I Disembarked Prematurely. But despite the change of plans, Angélique did cross the atlantic on a different boat and has been travelling in South America since.
