Ho Chi Minh (most Vietnamese still call it Saigon) was not my favourite stop on our 7-day trip in Vietnam but it wasour best option to flight back home. And indeed, we felt the city was very busy and noisy and unfortunately not charming but I was still happy to pass by: Ho Chi Minh has a vibrant night life and an interesting history. We … Continue reading 2 days in Ho Chi Minh
Nha Trang is a beach town packed with Russian tourists (don’t be surprised to see signs in cyrillic at every crossroad) but with a micro climate that makes the weather particularly good. We arrived in Nha Trang with a night train (SE5) from Hue during our 7-day trip in Vietnam. We took the most expensive tickets in a 4-berth air-conditioned cabin to maximise our chances to have … Continue reading 2 days in Nha Trang
Hue was the second stop on my week-long trip to Vietnam. We took a bus with The Sinh Tourist from Hoi An to Hue. The trip lasted only 3 hours (instead of 4) and was very nice. I discovered sleeper busses… and slept pretty well! Hue is a big and busy city that feels much less cozy and traditional than central Hoi An. A small shock … Continue reading 2 days in Hue

I got off in Málaga Centro Alameda (2€70). The good thing about Spain is that the shops are open late. Finally got a bit of time to go to the sales! I really like the atmosphere … Continue reading 1 day & 1 night in Malaga

Lakes, rain forest, orchid gardens, walk of giants… The Singapore Botanical gardens are truly a perfect place to escape from the busy town. I arrived from Bugis MRT to Botanic Gardens MRT station in only about 15 minutes. The weather was not great on that day but when discovering the map, I was thrilled!

Here’s a short recap of the key moments of the trip! Great Ocean Road Landed in … Continue reading 3 weeks in Australia
