    Hanoi

    October 17, 2015 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    It was our last day in Hanoi as well as Vietnam before flying to Bangkok tomorrow. We spent it leisurely packing our bags and completing minor bits of 'travel admin' in preparation for the penultimate section of our adventure.

    We have not stayed In one place for so long since Cairns, Australia and that was 3 months ago now. Before then we were back at home. In the time spent here we have grown increasingly confident in navigating our way around the busy streets. It must show in our body language as we find ourselves approached less by the city's hawkers and hustlers seeking to make money from tourists. That said we are not immune, Alex still got his leg grabbed by a flip flop repair scammer but he didn't even break stride when telling the man to let go.

    We've posted a number of playlists along the way but this is a compilation of our favourites, a soundtrack of sorts to our adventure around the world (https://open.spotify.com/user/somebodyalreadyhasit/playlist/4rDw8yS6CxtxXSLQbR4lvL) -
