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. … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 35

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

 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

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 … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 27

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 25

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 … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 25

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 29

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 … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 29

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 28

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 … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 28

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
