Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 32

2-3 November - Kuala Lumpur - Melbourne A sleep in, of sorts.  Up about 8.00am, but don’t actually get downstairs till a bit after 9.00am. The combination of a big month, as well as trying to work up the courage to face our last day, perhaps. And maybe that’s the problem; too many ‘lasts’, over … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 32

1 November - Hanoi - Kuala Lumpur   Alarm goes off at 6.00am.  Well, it would have, had I not woken up ten minutes earlier. The realisation then kicks in; it’s here.  The day that we leave Vietnam, has arrived. I hate that. A quick pack up, and we’re downstairs by 6.30am.  The car is … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 31

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 is … 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 of … 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 the … 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 to … 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 head … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 24

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 23

24 October - Hoi An Up just after 7.00am, and like yesterday, I feel okay. Head downstairs for my usual breakfast of fruit, and decide to give the caphe sua da another try. Both are excellent, so the day is off to a good start. Nothing much planned for the day, well, apart from catching … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 23
