  • Cai Be to Sa Dec - Wednesday, 1 February 2017Went to bed reasonably early last night and Phil started watching some harrowing movie called "No Escape".

  • Old Town Hoi AnAfter breakfast at our homestay, we set out to find a drugstore (to refill my Imodium stock) (which has worked finally!) and to visit a tailoring shop recommended by our hostess, Duy.

  • Sick in Ho Chi Minh CityWell, the silence of the last couple of days is not due to a lack of internet. We've both been under the weather with digestive issues. Got up New Year's Day and didn't feel too well. First thing I heard Posted by katdill in Adventures in SE Asia 2017 | Jan 29, 2017
  • Ho Chi Minh City - Sunday, 29 January 2017We had a good night's sleep and while we were at breakfast, made contact with Mao, our Cambodian guide for the next 13 days.

  • Mandalay - Bangkok - Ho Chi Minh City - Sat, 28 Jan 2017We had a great sleep last night and a big sleep in this morning.

  • Second week in Vietnam...I seem to have found, on Friday, the Bahn Mi sandwich that tickles my tastebuds the best to date!. The stall is not too far from the beach, so easy to stop by and pick up a picnic lunch. What Posted by hermanita in Winter 2017 | Jan 31, 2017
  • Day 13We woke up in Hanoi, a city that was impressed upon my consciousness in the early 70's as the USA's Vietnam war grew closer to an end. This visit has been a total learning experience in terms of why that Posted by RogerLaHaye in The Asian Adventure | Jan 16, 2017

  • Häng med Högströms i Mui NeFrämsta anledningen till att vi valde stränderna just i Mui Ne som nästa stopp var att Lisa med familj skulle vara där över jullovet. Sen var det ju ett stort plus att området är vida känt för sin kitesurfning :). Posted by Stefan Hök in Hok Family Trip | Jan 11, 2017
