Leaving 'nam

This post is rather lacking in photo's due to me stupidly letting a kid play with my camera, they formatted the card, shame, had some great photo's of me climbing up a small waterfall and driving my motorbike on the beach.

I am finally returning home, I have had a really great time and met great people, as you would expect. Think I might have even learnt something!

In a lot of ways I will be sad to leave 'nam, as it's a lovely place and the people are so wonderful.Some of the best people I have met have been via CouchSurfing.org which I recommend to anyone that likes bimbles.

Over all I have stayed on budget, possibly minus the plane to Mongolia, Mainly as it is so amasingly cheap to be in South-east Asia, I mean to the level that I can hardly believe it.

I shall be home by the 1st of March, should be good to see people :)

I will continue to post up any amassing bimbles I partake in.

More from 'nam


Relaxing almost to much....almost.


Love the general attitude here, everything is pretty relaxed and people are quite straight with you, for example if you are buying something at a shop and you are too annoying they tell you to get lost and refuse to sell you anything! which I love.



If it ain't broke don't fix it, if it is broke fix it with duck tape! everything in Vietnam has broken at least twice and been taped up, melted back to shape or just ignored. Love it!


Was having a good time on my bike, but it eventually got to the point that it was almost not worth fixing anymore when I had broken almost every part, the easiest way to explain is I had broken the engine away from the frame twice and got it welded back in! and both the front and back brake were fixed with bungy cord! that's only some of it, it is easier to list what still worked than what was broken by the end *grins*.

Been Couch Surfing a bit, and have had a good time (except one person), and met some lovely people. Thanks guys :).

anyway, going to go back to the real world. Too lovely outside.
