Our Last Night in Vietnam: Hanoi

When we arrived to Hanoi we knew our motorcycle adventures were soon to be over. The month had gone by so quickly. It was hard to believe we had just traveled all the way from Saigon. Traveling by mostly motorcycle and two trains we went over 1,500 km or almost 1,000 miles! Now spending time to […]

Cat Ba Island and Ha Long Bay

-Written by James Just a 30 minute ferry ride away from the industrial harbor town of Hai Phong is a quiet island called Cat Ba. It is the gateway to Ha Long Bay. The area is really stunning. Massive limestone cliffs and spires jut out of the sea for miles. We were really eager to […]

Thiên Đường Cave (Paradise Cave): Phong Nha

Wiping sweat from my forehead I walked down the steps becoming instantly cooled from the cave. Paradise Cave is one of the many caves in this part of Vietnam. Phong Nha is home to the largest cave in the world, Hang Son Doong. Let’s all take a moment and admire these outstanding photographs of the […]

Ho Chi Minh Trail

We followed the little winding roads up and around the mountain. Luscious green trees provided plenty of shade. The road was narrow but well paved. After leaving Khe Sanh there was no one else on the trail. It was just me, James, and our little Honda Blade chugging along.

Huế, Vietnam

Let’s Stroll Through Hoi An

Hoi An is a rustic, quaint city divided by a slow moving river. The streets are lined with tailoring shops. It’s the go-to city to have any suit, dress or clothing piece custom designed and sewed. Hoi An is a colorful city. Most buildings are painted yellow detailed with wooden shutters.

Back to the Beach! Nha Trang, Vietnam

Nha Trang has a nice, long beach that is surprisingly empty during the day. It sits next to one of the busiest streets in the city. Although empty, it was a noisy beach. The honking becomes background noise and peddlers sell quite persistently. After the fifth or sixth No they continue on down the beach. We […]

Our First Stop: Dalat, Vietnam

The route to Dalat consisted of winding roads up and down along mountainsides. The temperature changed from cool to warm to hot and back to cool again. The roads were smooth with practically zero potholes or loose gravel. The motorcycle climbed up the mountain causing me to shiver. It was a lot of fun riding […]
