New month new Country!

Yes, that’s right I am now in Vietnam ( 9 months later than planned😂) but as British Rail used to say better late than never.

Okay, I am only staying for a few weeks but this is a reconnaissance mission for next year when I will travel for 3 months from south to north.

So a few days in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi. Go to Sapa and to climb a mountain called Fansipan the highest point in Indochina which at 3.143m is called “the Roof of Indochina”

Also, I paid my first visit to Myanmar and visited a beautiful city called Yangon. Which has some of the nicest people I have met and the best food in terms of taste in South East Asia so far.

Hanoi, Vietnam

A beautiful and unique city where love is really strong, well for me at least.

The streets are crazy and chaotic but have a charm about them. I can sit and watch the world go by for a long time here. It gives me a peace I cannot explain because it is a place that is unlikely to look anything but peaceful.

Sit on the side of the road and try local cuisine. Whilst others dodge the moto’s and scooters as they walk around you on the little side roads. Traffic here has a way of just avoiding everything.

The lake in the centre of the old quarter has a charm that is again unique. I am told it comes to life at the weekends when all the locals visit and picnic around here making it a special place.


Street Muriels are a big thing in many large cities, Hanoi is no exception
