Trekking in Sa Pa

First on the agenda was a 3 day trek in Sapa- so we boarded the overnight train form Hanoi which took about 9 pain filled, dirty & hot hours (my tolerance for sleeper trains was fastly deteriorating). But thankfully the Mountain town of Sapa was totally worth it- surrounded by rice fields and...

Cumpleaños Feliz al Fresco

De la costa nos fuimos a la montaña, concretamente a Sapa, donde termina la cordillera del Himalaya y hace frío en noviembre. Sapa no es un pueblo grande, pero sí agradable, con lago incluido y el más grande de la zona que está principalmente habitada por pueblos indígenas de las tribu Hmong...

Northern Vietnam

We are currently in the northern mountains of Vietnam after finishing a two day trek and spending the nights in local villages. It was a great experience, something I will remember for a long time to come. That said, I continue to get the feeling that Vietnamese people are not quite as warm...

Sa Pa Trekking Adventures

We are back from our 2-day trek into the hill tribe areas around Sa Pa, and it was great! We had very good weather until this morning (when it rained), and the scenery was gorgeous. I think it was the same route I did years ago when I was here, but it was remarkable how much things have...

Hiking in Rice Fields

Sapa has been an intense and amazing 4 day excursion. I am traveling with Vivian, Jocelyn, Carl and Aaron. Getting to Sapa involves an overnight train from Hanoi. There was excitement right from the start when the train started moving while some passengers were off the train. A brief chase...

Honk honk!!

If there's one thing I've noticed since arriving in Vietnam, it's that people like honking! The honk filled cacophony of Hanoi, Sapa, and even the trail through the different villages due to motorbikes has been amazing...and trying on the head. Carl, Joc, Ben, Aaron, and I wrapped up our 3...

Into the Jungle!

T minus two hours to departure for our Sapa trek. After a sweltering overnight train ride during which we all got very little sleep, we arrived safely in Lao Cai (on the Chinese border) and then took a one-hour bus to Sapa. The countryside here is absolutely gorgeous, and I am looking forward to...
