Mt Phousi (tour guides part 1)

2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (2 of 11)We were so excited to have some family come visit us for a couple of weeks this summer!  Aside from lots of relaxed time (and late nights!) catching up at home, it gave us the chance to see Luang Prabang as tourists again.  Ryan was able to take a few days off work, and we also made the most of the two weekends during their visit.2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (3 of 11)The temps were HOT! So, we went swimming a couple of times, and tried to cool off in the AC between outings.  2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (4 of 11)In the middle of Luang Prabang is Mt Phousi.  One evening we decided to make the climb at dusk to show them the view from the top of the town. 2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (5 of 11)It’s a LOT of stairs, but the kids love it and race on up ahead.2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (9 of 11)We were all dripping with sweat by the time we reached the top (along with everyone else!) but the views were worth it. 2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (7 of 11) 2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (8 of 11) 2015-09-30 Mt Phousi with kids by Melissa Crossett (10 of 11)Our kids were part of the attraction for a crowd of Asian tourists, but they didn’t seem to mind.

  1. I am exhausted following my traveling with you on amazing adventures. I think about all that you allowed me to experience. The girls will be able to remember as well. Imagine sitting in a class room and answering the question “what experience have you had that might be unusual” the answer the girls might give “riding elepants in Asia”. Can I top that? No way. You folks are experiencing an amazing season of life. Bask in it. I am going to leave now only to take that trip and others with you. Thanks again. With love. OPa
