Vietnam 8th April

HI - We are on the Vietnam Trip - setting off 8th April with 9th April first day - anyone out there on this trip?

Hi Roger

My husband (Rob) and I are off on Monday.  We are looking forward to it although slightly apprehensive about the hills (we're from Cambridge - it's very flat round here!).   I've been on the other thread about cycling in Vietnam and have got lots of tips from a guy called Pete on there, especially about how much stuff to take to Whale Island etc.  

I'm away with friends this weekend (bad timing!) so have just packed my case for Vietnam and seem to have too many clothes.  I'm hoping my husband has some spare space in his case but won't be seeing him now until Sunday evening. 

I'll look forward to meeting you, on Tuesday if not before. 



Hi Alison and Rob - getting very excited now - but lots going on also between now and Monday flight (we are flying direct with Vietnam airlines) Went with Exodus to South Africa (lots of hills) - don't think this one is so bad. Saw the tips on the other forum - v helpful - had too much stuff on the SA trip so trying to take less. Met a couple in SA who had been on the Vietnam trip - highly recommended so we are in for a great time I think. See you Tuesday - safe travels!

My wife Helen is coming too ;-)

flying direct sounds sensible, we are going via KL.  Not too bad on the way there but long changeover on the way back.   I have booked an additional day off work to get over the jetlag! 

This si the first cycle tour holiday we've done, so I'm hoping we can keep up but I am not going to push myself if the ehat is too much - I will just climb back in the minibus.  Rob is better equipped to deal with humidity so he will push through regardless I think.  

I don't know anyone who has done cycling in Vietnam but lots of my friends have visited and say it is truly beautiful, so we have high expectations!

We'll see you and Helen on Tuesday, best wishes Alison
