Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 30

31 October - Hanoi   Our last full day. And while it’s not as bad as the actual day that you leave, it’s still not a great feeling. Live the moment.  Live the moment…. But that’s not always that easy. We head next door for breakfast, and fortunately, there’s chairs free on the balcony. Which … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 30

30 October - Hanoi   Alarm goes off at 6.30am.  Perhaps should have made it a little earlier, but that might have been pushing my luck, somewhat. I probably shouldn’t complain, 6.00am was just a bit too painful for me to comprehend last night. We get down to the lake by 6.50am, and there’s heaps … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 29

29 October - Hanoi   A sleep in of sorts, by getting up a little after 8.00am. Three full days left in Hanoi, which means I only have three mornings in which I can fulfil my desire to have breakfast down on the street. Today was certainly an option, in fact it was probably more … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 28

27 October - Hanoi   Actually had a bit of a sleep in, which doesn’t happen too often, and then headed next door for breakfast. Back on our balcony, enjoying some fruit, but enjoying the goings on down below, more.  Loved it three years ago, loved being back 18 months ago, and now, just rapt … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 26

26 October - Hoi An - Hanoi   Just for a change, we’re up about 7.00am.  But this time we sort of need to be. Do a bit of packing and tidying up, and then head downstairs for the usual breakfast of fruit and caphe sua da. That done, we finish off the packing and … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 25

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 24

25 October - Hoi An   Up at our fairly usual time of 7.00am, give or take a few minutes, which seems to be a recurring theme. I’m not sure why it always seems to be around 7.00am, because it’s certainly not a conscious thing.  It kind of just happens. Anyway, whatever the reason, we … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 24

23 October - Hoi An   7.00am, and fortunately, there’s no urgency to find the bathroom. But, in the haze of those first few seconds of waking up, how do I feel? I’m not sure. I think I might be okay, but I’m a little nervous calling it this early. Off to the toilet to … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 22

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 21

22 October - Hoi An   Wake up about 7.00am, which is a little earlier than I planned, or wanted. But, when your body decides that it no longer needs, or wants, something that it’s retaining, you kind of need to get up. And because it seemed to be in a bit of a hurry, … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 21
