Love, Trust, and a little bit of Wanderlust If we don't try we will never know, in the end we only regret the chances we didn't take.

One Stop Visa Shop

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 11 Jun 2017 | Views [13]

During our trip we have met people from all over the world. While in Phnom Penh we caught up with a couple from Canada that we originally met in Da Lat, Vietnam. They were on their last night in Phnom Penh so we headed out for some food and drinks. ... Read more >

Lazy Borders & Livestock

VIETNAM | Saturday, 10 Jun 2017 | Views [11]

Ho Chi Minh also has a Military Museum (lots of places in Vietnam have them and we visited one in Hanoi.) We decided to check it out after being dropped off from the tunnels, and with an entrance fee of 50p each it was worth a look. It started very ... Read more >

Chu Chi Tunnels

VIETNAM | Friday, 9 Jun 2017 | Views [20]

We seemed to have picked a good spot in Ho Chi Minh. The road with most of the bars and restaurants was just around the corner, the covered market was 5 minutes in the opposite direction and there where travel agents everywhere.  Unfortunately, ... Read more >

Cold Cabbage Soup & Crazy Bus Drivers

VIETNAM | Thursday, 8 Jun 2017 | Views [11]

The next morning we checked into our next hotel. We only had one night here. And thank God! The place was awful. It had damp on 3 of the walls, you could see the mould patches. You could even smell the damp the second you walked through the door. Thankfully ... Read more >

Dinner in Da Lat

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 7 Jun 2017 | Views [20]

After 2 fantastic nights in the amazing hotel we really didn't want to leave. It was so comfortable, a little home from home luxury. But we had to move. We had a flight booked from Hue to Da Lat. The hotel provided an airport transfer and off we went.... Read more >

Hot in Hue

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 7 Jun 2017 | Views [21]

The hotel was incredible. We checked in and the reception staff quite happily called the scooter company to tell them we had arrived. They then sent us up to the 8th floor where we were shown to a table set with a plate of fruit and a glass of passion ... Read more >

The Hai Van Pass

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 6 Jun 2017 | Views [11]

Time to hit the road! We dropped our rucksacks off at the scooter shop (they will send them to Hue on a bus for us) and picked up our scooter. We were relieved to see it was pretty new and looked in good condition. Over the past few days we've seen ... Read more >

The Ancient Town & More Allergies

VIETNAM | Friday, 5 May 2017 | Views [69]

It was time for us to move on again. We seem to be moving quickly at the minute. Always on the go! This time we were heading for Hoi An. We checked into a party hostel. The room was fine, the bathroom had a bath but there was no chance I would use it.... Read more >

Airport Benches & Allergic Reactions

VIETNAM | Friday, 5 May 2017 | Views [64]

We arrived back in Hanoi, to the intense craziness. Our flight to Da Nang wasn't until early the next morning, but we decided we would embrace the travellers ways and sleep (ha ha ha) at the airport! When we arrived we were pleased to see the airport ... Read more >

Tiny Towns and Huge Hills

VIETNAM | Saturday, 29 Apr 2017 | Views [61]

As I said in the last post, one of the first things we noticed about Sa Pa was the weather. When we arrived it was warm and sunny, when we headed out for some food about an hour later it was cold and cloudy. From the window of our room we could see the ... Read more >

Clouds and Cold Weather.... Wait, What??

VIETNAM | Saturday, 29 Apr 2017 | Views [65]

The bus was due at reception at 6:30am. We were downstairs around 6:25. The bus arrived about 7:00 😴 This journey was about 6-7 hours long (they could never be exact because it all depended how insane your driver was) we had paid more than usual for ... Read more >

Propaganda, Palaces and Poverty

VIETNAM | Friday, 28 Apr 2017 | Views [50]

Before our next bus adventure we had one more day to spend in Hanoi. We had heard of a Military museum so we decided to head there. The walk there was quite a long one and on the way the traffic was as bonkers as ever. The worst thing about it is the ... Read more >

Celebration of Women and War

VIETNAM | Friday, 28 Apr 2017 | Views [36]

A lot of the sights in Hanoi you can see just walking around the city. The traffic alone is a sight in itself, the real hustle and bustle draws you in and it's unnerving how quickly you become a part of it. A few days ago the need to cross a road had ... Read more >

Ha Long Bay - Day3

VIETNAM | Friday, 21 Apr 2017 | Views [39] | Comments [1]

We got up early and organised our bags before heading down stairs for breakfast. They had streaky bacon and local sausage, fresh omelettes were being made, with tea, coffee, juice and fruit. We had what we could stomach at that time and waited for our ... Read more >


Ha Long Bay - Day 2

VIETNAM | Friday, 21 Apr 2017 | Views [42]

The next day we were up about 6 to make sure we were packed and head to breakfast at 7. We were sailing to a pearl farm to see how they operated. We arrived and they whizzed us round pretty fast. We learnt how natural pearls are created, when something ... Read more >


Ha Long Bay - Day 1

VIETNAM | Friday, 21 Apr 2017 | Views [48]

We were picked up buy a mini bus at 8am from our guest house. We spent the next 30 minutes navigating the crazy streets to collect all the other people for the journey. The bus was cramped with tiny seats and no leg space, and once everyone was on, ... Read more >

A Hub of Terrifying Traffic.

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 19 Apr 2017 | Views [58]

Hanoi is a crazy hub of culture. There are streets of market stalls and vendors packed with locals, then roads over run by travellers. The buildings here are unusual compared to anywhere else. They are narrow but really tall. And when I say narrow, they ... Read more >

Airports and Angry Drivers

VIETNAM | Sunday, 16 Apr 2017 | Views [71]

Flight Day had arrived. Nearly 8 weeks in and this is the first plane we are getting on since our flight to Bangkok at the very beginning. We got up, horribly hungover, got washed and dressed and headed down to wait for our bus. Another 3 hours back ... Read more >

The day had arrived for us to go tubing! We had been excited about this activity since before we started the trip. We headed down to the pick up point, grabbing some food from a street vendor along the way. We paid, filled in a disclaimer document and ... Read more >

Rivers, Rain and Reruns of Friends

LAOS | Saturday, 8 Apr 2017 | Views [71]

From Vientiane we got a mini bus to Vang Vieng. It took about 3 and a half hours with a 15 minute stop off at a little side road food market. At the stop off point we had all just pilled back on the bus after enjoying a grilled corn, we noticed a few ... Read more >
