VIETNAM | Tuesday, 23 December 2008 | Views [930] | Comments [1]

Ahaha - only joking :)

I am still in Nah Trang and everything is going very well. Jobst is gone and I am now travelling with Robert - a very friendly and social guy from Netherlands. He has got so many travelling experience to tell and he is great fun to hang out with. He has been travelling by bike to Laos and Cambodia and seems really at ease around here.

Over the past few days I got a bit lazy and after the tour to the animal island. I have only been to the beach playing in the big waves bodyboarding, enjoying the sun and spending time with Robert, a very friendly couple of english people who have been travelling for a year and a half and local vietnamese friends. They don't speak very good english but they are so much fun to hang out with and I get to know what their life is like by spending time with them - it rocks :) These people work 9h30 a day, seven days a week - OUCH !

The last days dilemna was about whether me and Robert should keep going North in order to end up in Hanoi by the end of the year OR spend Christmas around here with our new found friends. Apparently, apart from Hanoi, cities on the way might be way less christmacy - however, I feel like I want to get going and get to see the North of Vietnam which is apparently very beautiful. We have finally decided to leave Nah Trang tomorrow for Hoi An by night sleeping bus. This kind of trip is always a challenge to my ability to let go of what I cannot control...the drivers tend to horn and take over non stop, the roads are bumpy and it is the same conditions for the people coming the other way...while travelling, I sometimes wake up anxious that the bus has hit something or maybe I am just dreaming I don't know. Train is not better, as it is twice more expensive and one really to keep an eye on his luggages...so we opted for the buses.

UPDATE from the 23rd of December:
Finally Robert and me have decided to stay with our friends in Nah Trang for Chirstmas. I will have spent more than I originally planned to. That is also the reason why I wanted to stay flexible and go with the flow. I think productivity regarding the amount of kilometers covered over a trip is a worthless measuring stick. So for now, I am still in Nah Trang and doing fine - I have some great people to spend Christmas with and it rocks :) Love to you all !
END OF UPDATE



Until next time :)

Cedric : getting very tannned now...

Salut frerot,

On est a la maison avec les parents et on profite de la sieste des petites pour lire tes aventures !
Continue de poster regulierement, tout le monde te suit meme si on n'a pas toujours le temps de t'ecrire plus longuement.
Au moins il n'y a pas de poules et de singes en cage dans les bus comme en Inde, tu t'en sors a bon compte, je presume que tu voyages en premiere classe alors profite bien !

Grosses bises de tout le monde, et il faut qu'on s'entende pour faire une video conference avant la noel,

Brice
