Travelling back in style on the Emirates new Airbus A380

11 June 2018

Taken some good drugs out here in Vung Tau Vietnam :-)

8 June 2018

Had a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels. I haven't got a clue how they went down the hole in the first picture. The actual tunnels are well made but very small. My legs still hurt 2 days later after trying to walk 300 meters in them.

7 June 2018

A trip up the Skytower in Saigon where there is a Heineken tour and they gave me my own bottle of beer at the end. That is how to park cars.

Coffee plantations and another great road from Dalat to Bao Loc.

2 June 2018

In the mountains on my way to Dalat. Then some of a silly hotel called The Crazy House ( we've all lived in a Crazy House ). Last pic is of Dalat night market.

29 May 2018

I saved a bit of bum ache and put the bike and myself on the train for 10 hours or I could have rode from Danang to Nha Trang for 3 days....These are some views of Nha Trang.

27 May 2018

Hai Van pass, one of the best biking roads I've been on. It's between Hue and Danang. Some pics of Old town Hoi an and Danang.

25 May 2018

I went into this cave on a boat for 1km and it is not the biggest cave here but it was too expensive to do. Although it makes the Cheddar gorge look like a rabbit hole...After that I went down to Hue but after taking the wrong road I came across such a good biking road and the views were amazing again. It made the journey 6 hours instead of 4....numb bum again :-)

24 May 2018

Just arrived at Phong Nha. Amazing ride and views.

22 May 2018

I stumbled across this waterfall whilst going down the Ho Chi Min Trail.

21 May 2018

I flew up to Hanoi and hired this bike. It's only a 125 but goes really well. I started riding north and saw these views but realised I have got to get too Saigon in the south soon, so I'm heading down there.

15 May 2018

Kampot pepper plantation and then some views from around Kep.

12 May 2018

I had a sunset cruise down the river in Kampot. Then I hired a motorbike and went into the mountains. The photos do not do the views any justice...sorry :-)

9 May 2018

Just to show how versatile the moped is and a guest at the hotel joined me for breakfast.

8 May 2018

A trip to the killing fields....what a couple of fun days I had in Phnom Pehn.
