Indo China – Day 44

As far as uncomfortable nights go, this was up there, as my hip was causing me all sorts of issues, and as Mollidy and myself were sharing the equivalent of a bed slightly bigger than a single, meant there wasn’t much room for me to move around to find comfortable positions. Add into the mix…

Indo China – Day 43

6am was the time the alarm was set this morning as today we were getting up bright and early to do something I had been looking forward to since booking the trip, and that was riding and interacting with elephants! We ate at the hotel, which was overpriced and average in general, and then at…

Indo China – Day 42

With it being a travel day, we were up at 7am to shower, change, and pack, before hitting the restaurant for breakfast. It was a typically simple meal, but as I’ve stated many times before, it did the job. Then at 8.30am and pretty much on the dot, we were in our private minibuses headed…

Indo China – Day 5

Our body clocks must be starting to adjust, as it was 6am that we woke up today, which was a big improvement on 5am the morning before, and 4.30am the morning before that. So we both felt fairly refreshed, and we also knew we were on the right track, as with the group trip starting…
