Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 30

4 October - Ninh Binh - Hanoi Eyes open. It’s light. Apart from that, I know nothing else about this new day. And right now, through the haze of a beer and rice wine hangover, I have no desire to actually know any more about it. I ain’t getting up, yet. I doze, and then … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 30

3 October - Hanoi - Ninh Binh Wake to the sound of an alarm. Which I guess is a positive, seeing as I wasn’t laying there awake waiting for it. It’s 5.00am. And yep, it’s painful. Damn beer corner. Damn beer. Damn friendly tourists. Damn late nights. But I wouldn’t change any of it, for … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 29

2 October - Hanoi Wake up a bit after 8.00am.  Bit of a sleep in, I suppose. But it hasn’t really helped. I just feel flat.  And disappointed. We’ve been away now for pretty much four weeks, so I guess at some point it was always going to happen.  Probably a little surprised it hadn’t … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 28

1 October - Hanoi   Awake at 6.00am. That’s not going to happen. Surprisingly, I actually manage to get back to sleep for another couple of hours. A very lazy start, and I’m more than okay about that. Twenty five years ago today, my life changed.  As did Lisa’s. And if someone said way back … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 27

30 September - Hanoi Eyes open about 7.30am.  But I don’t feel that great.  It actually feels a bit like a hangover, but it’s not a hangover. Try a bit more sleep to see if that improves things, and an hour later, it hasn’t.  But, I’m no worse, and it’s not that bad that it’s … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 26

29 September - Saigon - Hanoi Awake at 6.00am.  And not because I wanted to be. Alarm was actually set for 7.30am. Hoping to make use of the alarm I carefully set last night, I try to rectify my problem of being awake. Apart from maybe a minute or two here or there, I’m not … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 25

28 September - Saigon No alarm required this morning, which is always nice, and my first observation is that it’s light. But it feels late. Time checked, and it’s just 7.15am. Good, not unhappy about laying here a little longer.  And really, not having any plans for the day means there’s not much point getting … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 24

27 September - Can Gio - Saigon   As it was asked to do, the alarm does its thing at 5.00am.  Lucky we were in bed early, although right now, it doesn’t really feel like it was that early. I’ll blame the rice wine. Slept alright, though.  Well, I did when I was actually sleeping. … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 23

26 September - Saigon - Can Gio   Awake at 7.00am, but today there is no time for sleeping in.  We get ourselves organised, including packing up the majority of our stuff, and try and work out what we’ll need for the next 24 hours. That sorted, we head downstairs and have a quick chat … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 22

25 September - Saigon   Awake, but have no idea what time it is.  And, not really wanting to know at this stage, I doze for a bit. Eventually my interest in what time it actually is, gets the better of me.  Partly because I suspect the morning is starting to get away from us.  … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 21
