So this may be pushing the Travel Theme a bit far but I’m currently only limited to the iPhone as I am traveling.

So a couple can be any pair or partnership or companion working together? I therefore submit the border towns of Chiang Khong, Thailand and Huay Xai, Laos as my couple.

Arriving from Chiang Rai to Chiang Khong by a rickety 2 hour bus around 5 pm, it was a quick boat trip across the Mekong into Lao, where I exchanged 12000 baht into kip and became a multi-millionaire.

The main road running parallel the Mekong is dotted with guest houses and restaurants overlooking the river. Thankfully, I arrived in time for a nice sunset over the Thailand horizon.

Hi all, my name is Ben. I’m a native Michigander with a passion for human culture and new places, and more than that, new experiences. I have degrees in archaeology and writing, pursuing a career in the latter. However, I never quite lost that fascination for archaeological theory. For the past 11 years, I’ve been living and travelling between Asia, Europe, and North America, documenting ancient sites and the peoples who built them, and then adapting them into practical archaeological travel information at
