Good Bye Vietnam

Wow what a country.  Another one steeped in history and conflict, war is still raging - but it's the ever growing war of communism versus capitalism.  I accept the fact that i will never get used to it; I'm always the wallet, always the one the moto ... Read more >

Over 14 hours on an overnight bus while suffering from flu.  I LOVE travelling.  I also love Hoi An and I'm having a 2 week holiday from a holiday:                                                                                                                                      ... Read more >

Ninh Binh

Tuesday, 10 Apr 2007 | Views [1042]

A transport hub to see Halong bay on rice fields, floating villages, Vietnam's first National Park and some cool pagodas.  That's the plan - the reality is me getting flu and feeling sorry for myself.  I managed a day on the back of a bike to see some ... Read more >

Hanoi part 2 and Halong Bay

Saturday, 7 Apr 2007 | Views [1097]

How does anything not disappoint after the mini adventure of motorbiking...accidents and all?  By going to Halong Bay, obviously?  It's a world heritage site and you can forgive the rip-offs and the mass tourism...it is fantastic!  As part of our day ... Read more >

Hanoi part 1

Thursday, 29 Mar 2007 | Views [1172] | Comments [4]

It's a plane journey to Hanoi...NOOOOO! another one, so much for me travelling without flying.  We are nearly ripped off within 30 mins of setting foot outside the airport. $2 for the ride into town which turns into $3 to take us to our hotel - they ... Read more >

Darren and i take the bus to Hue, it's very unusual as it's a big bus with no more than a dozen people on it and no chickens...very strange.  it stops at marble mountains just outside of Hoi An, I'm glad we didn't visit them.  100's of hawkers really ... Read more >

Danang, Hoi An and My Son Ruins

Friday, 23 Mar 2007 | Views [2016]

It's an hours flight - passed by reading the biography of Pol Pot. Who says i don't know how to enjoy myself.  The taxi drivers at the airport try to rip us off - i lose a pen and a bottle of water in the fight, well, from leaving them in the taxi.  ... Read more >

Buon Me Thout and Yok Don national park

We have it all on a plate.  For $101 for the 3 of us we can have a guide, rent motorbikes, go trekking for 2 days and sleep in a bungalow.  That's too expensive...so we rent bikes and head off to the park ourselves.  Dagrun has our bags strapped to the ... Read more >

On the journey To Dalat we meet two Norwegian girls, who are travelling for a bit while they study in Vietnam. It's supposed to be a 7 hour journey but takes 9. Due to past experiences I count this as a result, meeting two girls makes it doubly so :) ... Read more >

Over a week has gone by since i entered Vietnam, and this has been the first chance to update my blog.  I've been travelling with two girls and a guy who actually went travelling around the world for 6 years, so I've kinda been distracted. The journey ... Read more >
