Waiting to embark on a 24-hour international bus ride from Hanoi, Vietnam to Vientiane, Laos – complete with a land border crossing and walk through no man’s land. Considered one of the hardest and most brutal bus journeys in Asia. Gonna be one of those adventures where it’s gonna be good only after it’s done, like doing Everest – but worse.
