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, … 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 … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 17

20 September - Can Tho - Soc Trang   I actually get woken up by the alarm, which doesn’t tend to happen that often.

I only got up once during the night, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 16

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

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 15

16 October - HCMC - Ben Tre  (Mekong Delta tour) Damn it!  A ‘goodbye’ day. All packed up and downstairs before 7.30am. We do the ‘goodbye’ thing with Tung and Vy.  It’s hard. Hopefully it’s more a ‘see you soon’ type of farewell, rather than the more permanent sounding ‘goodbye’. I just don’t know when … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 15
