One Stop Visa Shop

CAMBODIA | Sunday, 11 Jun 2017 | Views [56]

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 [80]

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 [73]

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 [75]

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 [119]

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 >

The Hai Van Pass

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 6 Jun 2017 | Views [63]

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 [189]

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 >

Tiny Towns and Huge Hills

VIETNAM | Saturday, 29 Apr 2017 | Views [139]

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 >

Propaganda, Palaces and Poverty

VIETNAM | Friday, 28 Apr 2017 | Views [118]

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 [70]

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 - Day 1

VIETNAM | Friday, 21 Apr 2017 | Views [116]

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 [112]

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 >

Rivers, Rain and Reruns of Friends

LAOS | Saturday, 8 Apr 2017 | Views [124]

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 >

Long journeys, Borders and Culture Shocks

LAOS | Monday, 3 Apr 2017 | Views [306]

We boarded the bus and were shown to the top deck and taken to our seats. The seats were pretty huge. They were about a seat and a half of a regular coach seat, if not wider, they reclined to about a 45 degree angle and had a foot rest that came up as ... Read more >

THAILAND | Monday, 27 Mar 2017 | Views [127] | Comments [1]

The time had come to leave Elephant Nature Park. As sad as we were about this we were so excited to continue our adventure. We had heard lots about a little town called Pai, about a 3 hour bus ride from Chiang Mai. While chatting about travel plans, ... Read more >

  Being new to the long term travel scene, after a bit of research it seems to go hand in hand with a blog, something else I am completely new to! So this is an attempt to document and share the experiences of a lifetime. When I suggested travelling ... Read more >
