    February 7, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    The most cheapest public transport way to travel is to taking the bus. So we went from Halong Bay back to Hanoi and then further to Hoi An. We started at 10.00am and arrived at 12.00pm the next day🙈 Food wasn't the best we had, but we're still alive and as soon as we checked in in our very nice hostel we took the bike and drove to the beach. FIRST TIME FOR ME SINCE I AM TRAVELLING. :)

    But we realized very soon, that we were the only people. Maybe because it's winter for them, but we still got sun burned.😂

    Meeting local rice farmers

    February 8, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Because Hoi An is surounded by thousands of rice fields, we wanted to see how this works!

    Best idea we had, just go to the fields and asked one of the farmers to help them out. Feeling on our own body how it is to put the rice seedlings in the water under the hot sun. With a little help for the communication from our guest house "mother", they showed us how it works and we helped them.
    Nice to have a private tour and speak with the locals, I just loved it!

    Jim (the guy from the photo) passed by and took us to different rice fields and to his familiy afterwords.

    Btw: Martina and I did the front of the field from one of the photo. Guess you can see from 100km that we are beginners :) And is it just me or does Martina already looks like an Asia girl? ;)

    Lunch @ Jim's familiy

    February 8, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    After the rice fields, Jim brought us to some friends where they showed us how to pottery a cup.

    Then he invited us to his family. A lot of people for such a small house but everybody was very friendly. They played cards and gave us homemade rice schnaps. After the grandfather prayed for all the food they served a big variation of Vietnamese food. Not sure if everybody belongs to the family, or if they only came because they had 2 blonde girls at their house. :) Anyway, it was delicious and something I will never forget. A lot of vegetables and fruits (even from the tree in the garden) I never saw in my life before.

    That's the way you experience the real side of a country!

    Hoi An pottery village

    May 8, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 35 °C

    Nach einem leckeren Frühstück gings mal wieder mit dem Fahrrad los. Mit Catherine (Canada) gings ab zur 'Töpferstadt', wo man sich auch mal selbst probieren konnte. Danach gabs krass leckeren Streetfood und eine Art Vietnamesisches Dessert. Da werden unterschiedlichste Früchte in einen Becher getan, sweet milk dazu, natürlich darf der Zucker auch nicht fehlen und Eis. Und das ganze wird dann einmal durchgemixt so gut.😍 Abends habe ich dann noch mit Aril & Acan und natürlich KS telefoniert.Read more
