    Thahn Binh Tuy Hoa

    December 31, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    Thomas hat nochmal Glück gehabt, die Wunde hindert ihn nicht am weiter fahren. Auf der Fahrt nach Tuy Hoa ist es windig, so windig daß sich die Palmen biegen und wir beinahe von den Maschinen gefegt werden, in Kombination mit Regen ein wahrlich wunderbares Erlebnis. Das Nau House ist der ersehnte Hort der Ruhe und hat die besten Betten soweit. Zu Sylvester gab es Hot Pot, der anschließende Versuch feiern zu gehen ist Fehlschlagen. Die Stadt hat keinerlei westlichen Tourismus, in einen aufgesetzten Club werden 2 Wunderkerzen gezündet. Vergleichbar mit Silvester ist das Tết fest, es wird gefeiert vom ersten Tag des ersten Monats des chinesischen Mondkalenders bis zum dritten Tag, nach europäischer Zeitrechnung etwa im Tierkreiszeichen Wassermann (zwischen dem 21. Januar und dem 21. Februar). Vietnamesen besuchen zu Tết ihre Familie und die Tempel, es werden eigene Festspeisen zubereitet. Tết markiert gleichzeitig den Frühlingsbeginn.Read more

    Thiện Chánh Quy Nhon

    January 3 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    Natürlich sind wir wieder zu spät los gegurkt, natürlich hat es wieder gegossen, immerhin ist es bis zum heutigen Tag die letzte Fahrt im Regen gewesen. Das Life is a beach hostel überzeugt durch rustikalität, inclusive Stromausfall. Nachts hören wir wieder das aufgewühlte Meer gegen die Steinklippe peitschen. Den nächsten Morgen wollte ich voller Elan zu den nächstgelegenen Strand fahren und Joggen, Schrotti hatte etwas dagegen. Die nächste Werkstatt ist ca. 3 km weit weg. Sport ist Sport, nach den ersten Berg schiebt mich ein Einheimischer von seinen Roller aus an, ich gleite elegant in die Werkstatt. Andy hatte die Vermutung dass es sich um die Zündkerze handeln könnte, der Austausch geht sehr schnell. Die Wolken verziehen sich für einen Moment und ich fahre weiter zum Strand. Eine Menschentraube hat sich in einer kleinen Hütte, in der Nähe des Standes, zusammengefunden. Ein Mann winkt mich zu sich, ich nähere mich dem Geschehen, plötzlich Hahnenkampf, die Tiere sehen schon mächtig erschöpft aus, umkreisen sich und scheinen zu clinchen. Die Runde ist vorbei, die Hähne werden zusammengenäht (im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes), Geldscheine wechseln die Besitzer und es wird sehr viel Reiswein konsumiert. Im Publikum befinden sich ausschließlich Männer. Eine neue Runde beginnt, die Hähne haben sich schnell regeneriert und gehen aufeinander los. Das Spektakel das mir zu Beginn so blutrünstig scheint, wirkt bei genauerer Betrachtung nicht mehr so grausam, das Verhalten an sich ist natürlich und wer würde seinen besten Boxer, mit den sich gutes Geld machen lässt, bis zum Tode kämpfen lassen?Read more

    Checking out Nom beach

    September 28, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    As we had arrived in the dark last night, it was almost like a little surprise to wake up and see the beach we were at. This morning we decided to take the motorbike and explore some surrounding beaches before it may get a little busier on the weekend. We past a temple who looked like they were cleaning from moon festival celebrations and Lila tried the lion. As we drove through the villages and on the roads which hug the sea, you see nets, traps, round boats, traditional boats and unfortunately a huge amount of fishing and non fishing related waste. We see people sorting sea snails and small roadside fish sellers.

    We pass through a small village with skinny streets to find Nom beach which was pretty It's empty, except for a steady stream of fisherman coming to take their boats to sea. We had a swim in the incredibly warm water and some snorkeling uncovered some lovely corals and small fish.

    Another treat today was finding lots of little small street food stalls or restaurants. There were many small restaurants in people's houses set up with a few tables and chairs in very relaxed settings. We found a lovely woman and her baby for a great coffee stop. We had Bahn mi (bread roll) in the front yard in a small village. We were treated to some yummy rice paper rolls made on the spot and banana fritters and then later we found a yummy roadside Che (sweet drink/dessert) with some pancake type thing made of rice paper topper with egg and other toppings cooked on coals.

    Visiting Om beach

    September 29, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Today we took the motorbike to visit nearby Om beach. On our way we passed the feather duster seller on her motorbike and again passed through a small fishing village.

    We get to Om beach, and it is beautiful, however like many places here, you need to get used to seeing quite a lot if rubbish around. The water however, is generally clean and today it is transparent :) Jean has a snorkel around, however says most of the coral is destroyed and there are few fish.
    For lunch we find another great street stall selling Bahn mi (bread rolls) and avocado shakes... delicious!

    Before we leave we check out the neighbouring Om beach in the next bay. We had a lovely local kid show us the way on her bicycle. This bay was more sheltered and would have been stunning, except the sheltered bay also meant to rubbish stayed there and there was noticeably more concentrated rubbish at this beach.

    On our way back we drove along the inside of the bay, seeing what looks like the beginning of lobster farming season. There were many people making (here and everywhere else we have passed through), big netted cages, which we assume are for lobster farming. Unfortunately the waste product of this is also clearly evident too.

    We stopped by for some yummy Che at the roadside stall we found yesterday, which was the perfect way to end the day :)

    Tuy Hoa

    April 9, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    In the morning I woke up with horrific cramps and stomach pains like when I was ill before... At the crack of dawn we went to get our bus to Tuy Hao. It seems all buses have weird lying down seats and once again we were in in the top back corner. If I'm honest the whole journey was horrible. The driver was driving very carefully for once but the roads were horrifically bumpy and windy and I was constantly being thrown out my seat. But we eventually got their safe and sound to our lovely hotel and had a bit of a rest before heading out. We hired a scooted for the evening and next day so that we could do all the must sees. That evening we went to the beach which had huge waves, watched some fishermen, saw the one "must do" in in the town (Thấp Nạn) and ate fresh grilled mackerel ở nướng (mackerel summer rolls). I could barely eat so just nibbled and the headed to get some water. We only went for water and came out with so many treats... Wups...

    I had the best night sleep in a very long time! The stomach cramps were still bad but we only had the day to site see before our 10pm sleeper train so we jumped on the scooter in search of some breakfast. We did our daily "I don't know what your are saying in Vietnamese, but I would just like some food", which always seems to work and then we headed to Vietnamese Giant's Causeway. The weather was really lovely again and although sitting on a scooter for an hour and a half isn't the best it was lovely when we got there. We then took a few detours to see some other local shorelines and villages and it really was a lovely day. Only problem was my stomach was just going mental all day so Will had to do most of the exploring on his own while I just sat on the rocks practising Vietnamese. But hey I had a great day.

    For dinner we wanted mackerel, rice and salad. So we headed to a different local restaurant. After about 2-3 mins they eventually understood what we wanted and we understood what they meant however they didn't have what we wanted. So we had mackerel ở nướng again. The locals were so lovely. They insisted on talking to us fully in Vietnamese even though we didn't have a clue sometimes but it was great. When we got back to the hotel they were absolutely lovely, we had a couple of hours till our train and they let us in one of the rooms to just chill out and shower until the taxi came. Honestly hospitality of the Vietnamese is so lovely. They treat everyone as family and its just so lovely. After resting and finalising our next two days accomodation we headed to to the train station for our first time on a Vietnamese Sleeper Train...

    Well as we have been super under budget for the last couple of months we decided to go first class (4 births in a room instead of 6). The bed was long enough to fit Will and overall people were generally quiet. However the announcement is in Vietnamese and having read online the arrival time can be 1 and a half hour early or late... So I was terrified of sleeping through our stop. But I got some kịp and we arrived safe and sound to Danang.

    Auf den Berg

    October 30, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌬 29 °C

    Die Sauberkeit in unserem Hotelzimmer lässt zwar zu wünschen übrig, der Ausblick auf den Hafen ist dafür nicht schlecht. Mieten uns bei unserem Hotelbesitzer Mr. Victor(?!) einen Roller und fahren zum Nationalpark um dort wieder einen Berg zu erklimmen. Diesmal sind wir etwas bergsteigerischer ausgestattet mit Turnschuhen und Wasser anstatt Flipflops und Bier. Oben angekommen ist der Ausblick echt Hammer :-) eine Höhle gibt es auch noch zu erkunden :-)Read more
