Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 16

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 15

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 14

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 13

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

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – The Planning

The Planning..... Seriously, how did we get here? And not just to planning a fourth trip, but to planning a trip that is going to involve things that we could never have imagined way back in 2014, when on the initial adventure. Interestingly, there was never any thought that there was to be a subsequent … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – The Planning

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 20

21 October - Can Tho - Hoi An   The alarm does its requested job at 6.30am, and we get ourselves organised doing the final pack up thing. As well as try and prepare for those goodbyes that I hate so much. We head out for a breakfast of banh mi with cheese spread, some … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 20

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 19

20 October - Can Tho   Back to the alarm thing…. Up at 5.15am; fortunately it’s not raining; and by 5.30am, we’re on the back of motorbikes heading over to Green Village 1. ‘T’, who we met yesterday, is taking us.  Interestingly, he’s not really a morning person…. Coming with us are a couple of … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 19

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 18

19 October - Can Tho   Wake up just before 8.00am. Hmmm, almost ten hours sleep.  Must have needed it…. And off in the distance, the muffled sounds of karaoke. It’s funny, our first ‘experience’ with karaoke was down here three years ago.  You’ll find it all over Vietnam, but perhaps it’s a little more … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 18

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 17

18 October - Soc Trang - Can Tho (Mekong Delta Tour)   The alarm goes off at 4.00am.  That hurts. But not as much as the ‘goodbye’ that’s coming. And Wang’s Mum is now making that just that little bit harder. She’s already up and in the kitchen, and because she knows how much we … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 17

Vietnam 2014 – Trip Report #3

These reports are from our very first trip to Vietnam in September 2014, so therefore prior to the previous trip reports! Originally posted on TripAdvisor, this is Trip Report #3...   23-25 September 2014 Time to leave the Mekong. And that wasn’t easy. What was even harder was saying goodbye to the people. Not just … Continue reading Vietnam 2014 – Trip Report #3
