    Good bye my friend and Vietnam

    February 24, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Our last days we spend on Phu Quoc island, which was a really nice ending of the Vietnam trip. We met so many nice people, saw how people live and work, experienced beautiful places all over the country and swim in the sea with the little shining plankton, showered in the jungle under the stars,...

    It was also time to say good bye to Martina who joined me on the Vietnam trip. Thank you very much for beeinf just an amazing travel buddy, it was a blast and I will never forget it! 😘

    Next step: walking through the Cambodia border and waiting hours for the visa... after that I arrived in Sihanoukville!

    Fisherman's friend

    February 23, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Phu Quoc is really a fisher island. Unfortunately I don't like seafood, but for people who like it, I guess it's a paradise. You can eat everything what comes from the sea. They also offer you shark everywhere, that's a sad fact because as far as I know there are not a lot left.

    If you are driving around the island with a motorbike you will pass a lot of fisher villages. The smell is maybe not the best, but the atmosphere is barnstorming.

    Do you see the sea stars in the water?

    Since 3 days, we are on Phu Quoc island. It's also my last destination together with Martina.

    Today we went to a bee farm. While we ate breakfast there, the friendly staff explained us a lot about the "circle of life" from the bees. It was so interesting!!
    They also have a lot of local fruits and plants, that's why the honey tastes soo good. :) Another nice attractaion was the little mushroom tent, where they grow shitake in a very special way. Just great!

    The place is very lovely and definitely a visit worth!

    Ho Chi Minh city

    February 19, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Our last big city visit in Vietnam is late Saigon. It's also a place, where they still wishing you a happy new year. :)
    We think the city is very different to Hanoi. You can feel, that there was a big war not a long time ago. The city is also a bit more modern and has more "western" shops and restaurants such as starbucks etc. (Which you can only find there) There we went to the war museum, which is very interessting and at the same time very sad.

    The traffic is massiv -the scooters even drives on the sidewalk during the rush hours. But otherwise we thought it's much easier to walk around then in Hanoi.

    At 22.30 we took the local sleeping bus to Hatien, where we arrived at 5.00am. So we waited 2 hours in hammocks until the first ferry drove us to our last destination in Vietnam - PHU QUOC

    Le petite Paris / Dalat

    February 13, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    After a lazy day at the beach we went further to Dalat. They say it's like little Paris because of the architecture and the french colony. It also reminds me a bit to the Engadin. No more palms but fir tree and a amazing view to the mountains. We enjoyed it very very much.Read more

    Nha Trang

    February 11, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌬 25 °C

    Not a lot to tell about this city, except that it's full of Russian people. Locals can speak better in Russian then English. Look kind of funny though!

    On the second pic you see a typical sandwich from Vietnam. They sell it everywhere in Vietnam on the streets. It's as famous for tourists as for locals... delicious and nice midnight snack!

    And not only Asia people love to make selfies everywhere;)

    Cheers, you will hear from me in Dalat! 😘

    Mount Marble

    February 10, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Because the wheather was really bad on our last day, we decided to rent a scooter and drove to a little mountain around 20km away.

    This mountain is very special because there were only women praying and all the Buddhas were female. Nice day trip, but very cold.

    Now we are ready to go to the south, hoping the sun is wiating... another 12h night bus drive brought us to Nha Thrang.
