I had three friends come over from Melbourne, and I took them on a 12 day trip to Laos. One guy was 55yo and never been out of Australia, so it was a shock to him.
The trip worked out well, but I would never take anyone to Laos again. The fact there is no hospitals except for the main cities, and no way to get to them if something goes wrong, made the trip a little stressfull for me, seeing that were we where riding was the middle of know were. We were in areas that no one goes too.
In future Ill only take friends riding in Thailand.
