Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 36

10-11 October - Hanoi - Kuala Lumpur - Melbourne It’s a few minutes before 6.00am, and for some reason, my eyes are open.  But getting up now just isn’t an option, so sleep is again attempted. I’m mostly unsuccessful, with just interrupted dozing achieved. And again, it’s mainly because of everything that’s going through my … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 36

9 October - Hanoi The alarm was set for 6.45am. However it’s 5.30am, and my eyes are open. That’s actually good, as I can roll over and sleep for another hour. But it doesn’t happen, and it ends up being an hour of just laying there, listening to the sounds of Hanoi waking up. As … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 35

8 October - Hanoi   Wake up around 7.00am, and feel okay. Which is good.  And even better, I don’t actually need to get up yet.  With no real plans for the day, a bit more sleep is the preferred option. I set about trying to achieve that, with what, in the end, is probably … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 34

7 October - Hanoi  (Incense Village) Eyes open about 6.30am, which is kind of good, as the alarm is still not due to go off for another hour. And I could do with another hour, seeing as six hours sleep – due to my inability to follow through with my good intentions of an early-ish … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 33

6 October - Hanoi   Wake up about 8.45am. The good news? I actually feel pretty good. Although I did have some really strange dreams during the night. Of course I can’t remember them, but yeah, they were definitely weird. The same thing happened in Can Gio, so apart from beer, there’s only one other … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 32

 5 October - Hanoi   Awake a bit after 8.00am.  A small sleep in, and, as an added bonus, I feel good. Well, I do for about 15 minutes, when the urge to use the toilet becomes a priority. Back to feeling closer to good, we head over to the balcony around 9.00am.  It’s been … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 31

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

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

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
