Downstairs and out into the still fairly quiet streets of Hanoi to do something I should have done yesterday; … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 4

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 3

4 October 2017 - Ho Chi Minh City - Hanoi Up reasonably early.  And there’s a few reasons for that. One, I have a 12.00pm flight to Hanoi. Two, I want to make the most of my limited time here. And three, I need to do something that we were unable to do on our … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 3
