Indo China – Day 33

Other than one of the overnight trains which had us up at 4.30am, this morning was the earliest start to a travel day yet, with a 5am alarm. We showered, changed, and packed the last of our things, and then headed down for the included breakfast at 5.30am. Vinh is not set up as a…

Indo China – Day 32

A 7am wake up seemed like a sleep in to us, not that we used it, as we are becoming rather accustomed to naturally waking up sometime between 5 and 6, and this morning was no different. Instead of getting up though and grabbing breakfast, we just stayed in bed a bit longer, as we…

Indo China – Day 31

This morning we woke knowing it was the official last day of one trip, and the official start of the next one, and we were excited to keep seeing what this trip had to offer. Because it was a transition day meant it was a free day, or until 6pm when we had the orientation…

Indo China – Day 28

Another night train and another bad nights sleep, though at least this sleep was just bad due to the noise and bumps, rather than bugs and fear of derailment, and luckily the mice didn’t mess with us during the night, or at least not that we knew of. The train itself was meant to arrive…

Indo China – Day 27

With another decent sleep, we wondered what to do with the day as it was going to be a little broken up due to us leaving the hotel slightly earlier than we normally do when taking an overnight train. We also had to checkout at 12, but once again we thought it best to extend…
