Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 21

Tuesday 27 September - Hanoi 7.00am, eyes open. Yeah, not a chance that that is happening. Lay there, doze, lay there, before making an effort just after 8.00am. I feel okay, but at the same time, there is an element of tiredness, and a general feeling of flatness.  It didn’t feel like we did a … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 21

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 20

Monday 26 September - Hanoi Awake at 7.00am. Nup, not happening. Doze for an hour listening to the usual noises of Vietnam; cars and bikes, and their horns, as well as voices. Eventually make the effort to become vertical, and we’re downstairs around 8.30am where we meet up with Kerstin again. She doesn’t really have … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 20

19 september - hanoi Awake at 5.00am.  That is most definitely not going to happen. But true sleep never returns, and instead, it’s just of the dozing variety. I just feel wrecked and my neck hurts.  Both those things are probably a result of last night.  First, the late night, which I really need to … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 13

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 12

18 september - hanoi Up just before 8.00am, and having turned the air conditioner off, the room is pretty warm.  But the feel of it, on the other hand, is still rather frosty. Oh well….. Out around 8.30am, and my goal is to find breakfast; hopefully a banh mi opla, or similar. Not for me, … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 12

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 10

16 september - hue Awake around 6.45am.  Not a chance that that is going to happen. Manage to eek out another hour, and then make a move.  But only because we really should. We get a message from Eva, and yep, we’re doing the coffee thing after breakfast.  Hue is finishing far better than it … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 10

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 9

15 September - hue Wake up about 7.00am, just like yesterday.  But unlike yesterday, I don’t feel the need to check on our belongings, nor do I have to move any beer cans that were strategically placed near the door. It’s a nice feeling. We get organised, and head outside by 8.00am.  It’s hot already.  … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 9

17 September - Chau Doc - Can Tho Awake.  Again. But at least this time it’s reasonably light outside. However, it’s still only 6.00am, which means I’m awake a bit earlier than I wanted, or needed, to be. While some sleep was achieved, there were certainly lots of times that I woke up during the … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 13

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 12

16 September - Chau Doc Wake up about 7.00am, and I guess the good news is that I did manage some sleep. But geez, waking often, and either feeling hot, or cold, coupled with bouts of profuse sweating, and then dealing with a nose running like a tap; it wasn’t heaps of fun…. So yeah, … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 12

Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 11

15 September - Chau Doc I wake up a bit before 7.30am.  Which is good, on two counts. It means I actually got some sleep, and it also means I’m still alive. It was a rough night, though. Fortunately, I suppose, it was all about the high temperature and the just generally feeling like crap.  … Continue reading Cambodia / Vietnam 2019 – Trip Report 11

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 18

19 October - Can Tho   Wake up just before 8.00am. Hmmm, almost ten hours sleep.  Must have needed it…. And off in the distance, the muffled sounds of karaoke. It’s funny, our first ‘experience’ with karaoke was down here three years ago.  You’ll find it all over Vietnam, but perhaps it’s a little more … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 18
