Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 7

13 september - can tho - hue Alarm did its thing at 7.40am.  Slept okay, but did have really strange dreams. Including one where we were already home. Fortunately it was just a dream, but I think it says a bit about what my brain is spending far more time thinking about, than I’d like. … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 7

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 6

12 September - can tho Slept okay.  Sort of. Probably shouldn’t have had those two beers when we got back. Up around 8.00am, and then head down to have breakfast. While waiting, I check a WhatsApp message on my phone, from a person called Hanh, who I assume is from the Easyrider group who will … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 6

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 5

11 september - can tho Those sounds of the Mekong, mostly frogs and crickets, worked well, with sleep, unusually for me, coming pretty quickly. Up a couple of times during the night, to do what has to be done when you get up in the darkness, and then up a bit before 8.00am. I head … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 5

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 4

10 september - ho chi minh city - can tho Yep, 12.50am was too late.  I really need to be better, but there were two beers still in the fridge, and I didn’t want to leave them there, nor take them on the bus trip with us. A job needed to be done, and the … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 4

Vietnam 2022 – The Planning

It's finally happening again! 2022 arrived, and while Covid lockdowns appeared, hopefully, to be a thing of the past, the new year didn’t feel that much different to the previous two. Overseas travel not only still seemed an impossibility, but it also felt like it would be that way for significant time to come. Vietnam … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – The Planning

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 18

22 September - Soc Trang - Saigon Awake around 7.00am, and I feel good.  Well, health wise good, but not overly good knowing that we have one of those dreaded goodbyes that needs to be done, this morning. Not to mention that five hour bus trip, as well….. And just like the night before, I … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 18

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 17

21 September - Soc Trang Slept really well, and didn’t wake up till it was light.  But it probably wasn’t the light that woke me up, more some kind of chanting, or perhaps a Khmer call to prayer???, being played over a loudspeaker.  Not really sure. It went on for a little bit, and when … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 17

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 – 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 16

17 October - Ben Tre - Soc Trang (Mekong Delta tour) Up early, which wasn’t too bad this time, seeing as we’d had a relatively early night.  Get our stuff organised and then went for a bit of a look around the homestay, Gite Nha Vuon Nam Hien. It has heaps of character, and it’s … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 16
