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

Saturday 24 September - MỘC CHÂU - Mai Châu The alarm in my head goes off around 7.30am, and we’re downstairs by 8.00am.  I think it’s fair to say we have the routine down pat, now. Outside, and it looks, both in appearance, and because I heard it, like it’s been raining most of the … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 18

Friday 23 September - MÙ CANG CHẢI - Mộc Châu Up around 7.30am, which is the good news. The not so good news is that it’s taking a while for my muscles to overcome the issues associated with sleeping on another bed that consisted of one of those ‘concrete’ mattresses. The other not so good … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 17

Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 16

Thursday 22 September - Tú Lệ - Mù Cang Chải   Up around 7.30am, and the first thought is to try and stretch various muscles that aren’t overly enamoured with having had to lay on something for 8 hours, that can’t be depressed by a standard human body. While the muscle aches may also be … Continue reading Vietnam 2022 – Trip Report 16

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

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
