Mr. Sounthone – Local guide in Laos
“I miss giving tours and showing off the beautiful natural forest and rivers of my country, explaining and sharing our culture and traditions.”
How is the lockdown going for you?
Oh! My Goodness! Of course life has been a bit more difficult lately with watching out for the daily expenses but even during this situation I feel blessed because I have much more time to stay with my family, and especially my little princess daughter.
What do you miss the most about your job as a guide?
Ah great question! I miss meeting my colleagues but most of all, I miss giving tours and showing off the beautiful natural forest and rivers of my country, explaining and sharing our culture and traditions…
How do you spend your time during lockdown?
I play with my family, doing some light activities in the yard like playing badminton in the front yard. I also spend time reading books and teaching English to my kid.
Where would you like to travel when all of this is over?
I would like to travel to Japan, Myanmar and Indonesia, but also focus more on discovering parts of Laos where I have never been.
