good motoring, vietnam

08 November 2016 — 03 December 2016

For all its individual merits, my Philippine road trip was primarily a dry run for the bigger ride I wanted to do: Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh.

So, just a month after coming back from the Cebu-Manila loop unscathed, I was on a plane to Hanoi, where I bought a motorcycle and met up with two guys I’d met on Couchsurfing before setting off on the 1500km ride together (like ya do). And while the following weeks were hardly enough time for everything I wanted to do and see (it never is), it was still filled with fun adventures, amazing landscapes, and great friendships I maintain to this day.
