What you’d rather be seeing – Vietnam

Six weeks riding motorbikes from Saigon to Hanoi was one of the best things we’ve done on our year, an adventure within the adventure that delivered memories for a lifetime.  The Ho Chi Minh trail in the mountains bordering Laos was incredible but the countryside was at its most amazing due to the people and […]

Top 10 – Vietnam

 A Top-10 means a top ten, not two top tens but we’re all about breaking out of strict rules and living dangerously after a road trip too big to fit into just one. In a country that’s basically the worlds biggest food buffet placed into dramatic scenery with inspiring people we ate, we saw, we […]

Coming out was a long time ago for us and although we remember the time it’s impact has been dulled […]

While you were working – A Look in a Mirror, Hanoi, Vietnam

 Wandering these streets seems too familiar too quickly in the storm of chaos that describes them. Yet familiar they seem more than they ought, a travellers adaptability or maybe a human resilience we all have but so rarely grant an opportunity to shine? Tung is leading the way as he tends to do; being a […]
