Say What??–Pepper Shaker

The 3 largest are inhabited and have become a significant stop on the backpacker trail for those seeking a bit of relaxation (or for those who just can’t get enough of those Thai islands).

Si Phan Don, as it’s called in Lao, was absolutely one of the highlights of my trip. It’s incredibly laid back environment was perfect for lounging around in a hammock all afternoon (or for the more adventurous, exploring the islands by bike).

I’m sorry, but I have to ask…would you like some paper on your meal tonight?
