Less Baggage Less Stuff Less Procrastination

A different kind of travelogue. As an avid young traveller I often wondered what would it would be like when I got older, gathered commitments, created children and accrued debt. This is what it's like.

Grand Tour 2015 #7; Joining the main stream

Good Night to the sun. And hello to the next phase. We left our two faced world of Ho Tram Beach; rubbish and fishermen versus luxury and protected community. I could drink a beer at my accommodation for 30000 Vietnamese Dong or walk down the beach and join this guy for the same beer for less than a quarter of that. He was rarely having a beer.he was gathering shellfish.

No one spoke english except the staff to the Resort. the Village, one hundred metres away, was an english free zone. 90% of the clients at the resort were Vietnamese. I’m not sure what part of a genuinely communist system generates enough personal wealth to allow one to spend $1600 a night on accommodation but apparently some part does.

We got in a car. We made our way north. We climbed onto a train; “Hard Sleeper.” 12 people in a 6 person cabin. Now you’re talking.


4 hours north is Nha Trang. We are told its full of Russians. I like Russians.

Lets see.
