    Day 6 - Meo Vac Sunday market

    September 23, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We decide to head to the next big town Meo Vac, a scenic 45min drive away to visit their Sunday market. We arrive and the market is bustling with activity. They are selling very much the same things, however it seemed to us to be a lot more lively than Dong Van (but that could have been because of the time we arrived). There is an amazing eating area, sectioned off to different small stalls with their own soup broths in big well used pots on wood fire. There is the area outside with tables and chairs of big groups of people enjoying 'happy water'. An area of people selling traditional clothes and tailors with old sewing machines tailor making clothes. We really enjoy walking around this market and absorbing the surroundings. We return towards the end of the market when people are packing up and enjoy a slightly sweet yummy soup with soft chewy dumplings.Read more

    It always takes longer than you think...

    May 9, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    So we are about 30 km behind what we were hoping, but we headed off early for breakfast and to see the sites of Lung Cu including the fake and real most northern points of Vietnam and to see China! Its funny, when someone said we could see China I had this idea in my head that it would look completely different and there would be a Chinese flag etc. Nope there was nothing... Just another mountain on the other side of the river 😂

    We went back to the homestay packed, filled up petrol and even though we got up for 6am it was somehow 10:30am already! The original plan at the start of the journey was to do a very big loop which incorporates the famous Ha Giang loop, Ban Gioc Waterfall and the beautiful Ba Be Lake. The owner of our first hostel said it was easily doable in 6 days. Today was decision day whether we did the big loop or just the Ha Giang loop. So we had a quick look at the map and realised it was completely impossible. The Ban Gioc Waterfall was over 300km away. We were averaging under 100km a day so if we did everything it would take us about 8-9 days and Svenja only had 6. So we took the decision to do the smaller loop which was still going to take us 4-5 days. We had about 113km to drive today... The aim was to get to Du Già via the famous, beautiful, but most dangerous pass, the Mai Pi Leng Pass. So off we went via a few sights and we finally got to Dong Van and had lunch. It was now 2:30pm and we still had 90km to drive...

    We carried on to the beautiful Mai Pi Leng Pass and wow. Round every corner it got more and more spectacular. I just can't describe how stunning it was! It was a bit hazy so the photos might not do it justice but just wow!

    We finally got to a little town Meo Vac which was the last town/ place for accomodation until Du Gia which was still 72km away and it was now after 3:30pm. So we decided to stop here and find a hostel instead. It was a really lovely evening. We met lots of other people who were also doing the loop. Will chatted and drank with the guys and me and Svenja went for a wander and dinner out of the hostel. It was a nice and relaxing evening what felt like quite a tough day.

    Little Yans Homestay, Vietnam

    May 20 in Vietnam ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

    Für unserere zweite Nacht des Loops mieten wir uns wieder bei einem Homestay ein. Hier treffen wir noch auf eine andere Gruppe.
    Zu Viert teilen wir uns ein Dreibettzimmer: Lotte und ich teilen uns ganz wie in alten Neuseelandzeiten ein Bett.

    Während Jan und Lotte die Lokalitäten auschecken bleiben Christian und ich im Zimmer und starren an die Decke. Das hat auch guten Grund, denn irgendwas stimmt hier architektonisch ganz und gar nicht. Es handelt sich um eine Decke, die nicht gerade sein wollte und auch die Wand ist ein wenig schief. Lachend und über Hauseinstürze scherzend finden die anderen Beiden uns vor um zum Abendessen zu rufen. Der Hot Pot könnte mit einer zehnköpfigen Familie geteilt werden und so schaffen wir es kaum die Massen an Essen zu vertilgen.

    Mit der anderen Gruppe spielen wir später noch "Cards against Humanity", wobei wir doch einiges interessantes Lernen und vor allem viel Lachen.

    tt. Mèo Vạc

    September 13, 2016 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Entlang des Ma Pi Leng Passes „Weg des Glücks“.
    Der 20 km lange Streckenabschnitt wird der Bedeutung wirklich gerecht, da man sich
    auf diesem Weg mit solch atemberaubend schöner Landschaft einfach nur richtig glücklich fühlt.

    Meo Vac, Vietnam

    March 23, 2015 in Vietnam ⋅ ☁️ 6 °C

    Gestern musste ich die Fahrt von Dong Van nach Meo Vac wegen des schlechten Wetters abbrechen und wieder umkehren. So blieb ich noch eine Nacht in Dong Van und startete heute erneut, allerdings war es kein bisschen besser. Nebel, Wolken und Nieselregen sind auf bis zu 1.800 Meter wahrscheinlich nichts außergewöhnliches. Die Fahrt wurde somit etwas abenteuerlich. Es ärgert mich vor allem auch, dass ich auf der Passstraße zwischen Dong Van und Meo Vac absolut nichts gesehen habe... die Strecke soll nämlich zu den schönsten Bergstraßen der Welt zählen...
    Auf bayrisch gsagt: "A richtigs Sauwetter ghabt"! Naja, gehört auch dazu!

    Die Bilder sind von gestern:
    1. Arbeit in den Bergen
    2. Eines der unzähligen Kinder, die am Straßenrand winken und "Ello" rufen ;)
