Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 20

Monday 26 September - Hanoi Awake at 7.00am. Nup, not happening. Doze for an hour listening to the usual noises of Vietnam; cars and bikes, and their horns, as well as voices. Eventually make the effort to become vertical, and we’re downstairs around 8.30am where we meet up with Kerstin again. She doesn’t really have … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 20

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 13

19 september - hanoi Awake at 5.00am.  That is most definitely not going to happen. But true sleep never returns, and instead, it’s just of the dozing variety. I just feel wrecked and my neck hurts.  Both those things are probably a result of last night.  First, the late night, which I really need to … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 13

18 september - hanoi Up just before 8.00am, and having turned the air conditioner off, the room is pretty warm.  But the feel of it, on the other hand, is still rather frosty. Oh well….. Out around 8.30am, and my goal is to find breakfast; hopefully a banh mi opla, or similar. Not for me, … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 12

17 september - hue - hanoi Eyes open, time checked.  It’s 5.45am. Good, plenty more time to sleep. Five minutes later, it’s 8.00am. Obviously needed it. Into the upright position, and make a start on that packing thing, which, because we’d had laundry done yesterday, was quicker and easier than it usually is. Downstairs, and … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 11

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 35

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 34

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 33

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 32

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 28

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 27

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 then … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 27
