Vietnam (#13)

The next day started with a 3 hour boat trip (for a whopping 8 dollars) through gorgeous scenery near nihn binh. Here are some pictures of the boat trip at Trang An.

Fun fact about the area, it was actually a filming location for the movie King Kong skull island.

Many of the caves we went under were quite a tight fit. 20180423_120342

Tranquility

The silence in this area as we rowed around was so wonderful.

If you look closely at the pictures you can see that the people rowing would even switch to their feet sometimes to give their arms a rest.

The next day I set off for Hanoi. This was a big milestone for me as it was the last place on my map that I had originally planned on going to. I could sense that feeling of change in the air. It is kinda exciting and scary at the same time not knowing exactly what is next or how much you will miss what is starting to come to a close.

It was quite a short ride from Nihn Binh at around 3 hours. The road had some very intense cliffs.

I honestly don’t know if I am going to be able to drive without getting tons of tickets back in the U.S. The way that people can and do drive wherever there is room on the road here is the most amazing thing. One way street? Nope…. That’s a two way street for motorbikes. Its going to be so boring having to stay inside the lines and not see fun things while going down the road everyday.

There is constantly so many people I bump into who I have met further South. Always so much fun seeing familiar faces.

There is a really neat game here that people play using their feet, a net, and a little hacky-sack like thing. These guys were very skilled and played right outside of my hostel. 20180426_154519
