Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 20

24 September - Saigon   No alarm required to wake up, as the light from the sun streaming through the windows indicates night time is well and truly over. Unfortunately, it’s not quite 6.30am. Mental note is taken to close the curtains tonight…. With not too much in the way of plans ahead of us … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 20

23 September - Saigon   Wake up about 6.30am, in our dark and quiet room. I guess that’s one of the advantages, or disadvantages, depending on how you look at it, of not having a window. Regardless, I feel good, which is always a nice surprise. Well, I did, until the chilli reminded me that … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 19

22 September - Soc Trang - Saigon   Awake around 7.00am, and I feel good.  Well, health wise good, but not overly good knowing that we have one of those dreaded goodbyes that needs to be done, this morning. Not to mention that five hour bus trip, as well….. And just like the night before, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 18

21 September - Soc Trang   Slept really well, and didn’t wake up till it was light.  But it probably wasn’t the light that woke me up, more some kind of chanting, or perhaps a Khmer call to prayer???, being played over a loudspeaker.  Not really sure. It went on for a little bit, and … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 17

20 September - Can Tho - Soc Trang   I actually get woken up by the alarm, which doesn’t tend to happen that often. It’s kind of nice, as it usually means that I had a good night’s sleep, which in this case, was exactly what happened. I only got up once during the night, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 16

19 September - Can Tho   Awake at 7.30am; a little bit of a sleep in, I suppose. The process of then figuring out how I actually feel, begins. And through the haze of just waking up, a realisation hits me. I feel good.  Like, really good! Finally, after a week, it seems to have … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 15

18 September - Can Tho   Alarm was set for 6.45am, but as often happens, it wasn’t required.  Awake at 6.30am; oh well, close enough. Actually slept okay, and now, as I lay there, I await the usual signs from the past week to tell me I don’t feel that good. Headache from last night … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 14

17 September - Chau Doc - Can Tho   Awake.  Again. But at least this time it’s reasonably light outside. However, it’s still only 6.00am, which means I’m awake a bit earlier than I wanted, or needed, to be. While some sleep was achieved, there were certainly lots of times that I woke up during … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 13

16 September - Chau Doc Wake up about 7.00am, and I guess the good news is that I did manage some sleep. But geez, waking often, and either feeling hot, or cold, coupled with bouts of profuse sweating, and then dealing with a nose running like a tap; it wasn’t heaps of fun…. So yeah, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 12

15 September - Chau Doc I wake up a bit before 7.30am.  Which is good, on two counts. It means I actually got some sleep, and it also means I’m still alive. It was a rough night, though. Fortunately, I suppose, it was all about the high temperature and the just generally feeling like crap.  … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 11
