Ride day 9: Ride to Thành nhà Hồ to Xa Te

26 May 2016 An early Nha Nghi start to the day (out before 8.00 a.m.) and nipped up the street past the buzzing markets to a bakery we’d spotted the night before. The wood fired oven was in full fire and fresh bread rolls were pulled straight out and put in a bag for us. […]

Ride day 3: Sa Pa to Viet Quang (via Chinese boarder at Lao Cai)

We’d picked the […]

Ahoy Hanoi!

Landing in Hanoi we were in need of a bit of rest and recouperation! This was our second visit to Hanoi and we’d already seen a fair few tourist sights (the prison is definitely worth a look if you’re interested in history and the French and American wars), so this time we were more focussed […]
