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

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 32

2-3 November - Kuala Lumpur - Melbourne   A sleep in, of sorts.  Up about 8.00am, but don’t actually get downstairs till a bit after 9.00am.

Oh well, don’t ever really expect to get any, so any that … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 2

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 1

2 October 2017 - Melbourne Three years ago to the day, on our very first trip to Vietnam, we were in Hue. We’d spent time in HCMC, the Mekong, Nha Trang, and we’d just come up from Hoi An. And at that point, we still hadn’t seen Hanoi.  Along with a few other places. Three … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 1

Vietnam 2014 – Trip Report #1

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 where it all began…   19-20 September 2014 Ok, Trip Report time. Trip Report doesn’t sound exciting enough. Sounds mundane…. Maybe “Summary of an Incredible Adventure”? Call it … Continue reading Vietnam 2014 – Trip Report #1
