Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 28

29 October - Hanoi   A sleep in of sorts, by getting up a little after 8.00am. Three full days left in Hanoi, which means I only have three mornings in which I can fulfil my desire to have breakfast down on the street. Today was certainly an option, in fact it was probably more … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 28

28 October - Hanoi   Once my brain kicks into gear out of the fog of just waking up, the possibility of having a bit of a nothing day today is pretty much confirmed. I feel ordinary; sort of hungover, but I’m not sure that’s all it is. I thought today might have been the … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 27

27 October - Hanoi   Actually had a bit of a sleep in, which doesn’t happen too often, and then headed next door for breakfast. Back on our balcony, enjoying some fruit, but enjoying the goings on down below, more.  Loved it three years ago, loved being back 18 months ago, and now, just rapt … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 26

26 October - Hoi An - Hanoi   Just for a change, we’re up about 7.00am.  But this time we sort of need to be. Do a bit of packing and tidying up, and then head downstairs for the usual breakfast of fruit and caphe sua da. That done, we finish off the packing and … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 25

Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 24

25 October - Hoi An   Up at our fairly usual time of 7.00am, give or take a few minutes, which seems to be a recurring theme. I’m not sure why it always seems to be around 7.00am, because it’s certainly not a conscious thing.  It kind of just happens. Anyway, whatever the reason, we … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 24

23 October - Hoi An   7.00am, and fortunately, there’s no urgency to find the bathroom. But, in the haze of those first few seconds of waking up, how do I feel? I’m not sure. I think I might be okay, but I’m a little nervous calling it this early. Off to the toilet to … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 22

22 October - Hoi An   Wake up about 7.00am, which is a little earlier than I planned, or wanted. But, when your body decides that it no longer needs, or wants, something that it’s retaining, you kind of need to get up. And because it seemed to be in a bit of a hurry, … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 21

21 October - Can Tho - Hoi An   The alarm does its requested job at 6.30am, and we get ourselves organised doing the final pack up thing. As well as try and prepare for those goodbyes that I hate so much. We head out for a breakfast of banh mi with cheese spread, some … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 20

20 October - Can Tho   Back to the alarm thing…. Up at 5.15am; fortunately it’s not raining; and by 5.30am, we’re on the back of motorbikes heading over to Green Village 1. ‘T’, who we met yesterday, is taking us.  Interestingly, he’s not really a morning person…. Coming with us are a couple of … Continue reading Vietnam 2017 – Trip Report 19
