Thanks for taking us along on your incredible journey! My girlfriend, who grew up in Viet Nam, and I enjoyed the photos and really brought back some memories for her as well as inspired us for a possible trip in the future. Thanks again!

More Photos

In addition to the photos I have already posted I have many more pretty good shots. My favorites were the photos of the people, so here are a few more that did not make it into the ride report. Hope you enjoy:

A few from the day we spent in the area to the west of Ninh Binh.
We passed this man in the rice paddies on our hike:



This lady was walking by the house where we parked our bikes - note she is chatting on a cell phone!

Vietnam bike rental info:

I have received a number of inquiries about our bike rental. It is very difficult to locate anything other than 125cc bike rentals, with a few 175cc options.
We rented the 250 XL's from Phungs Motorbike at
2wheelsvietnam.com
Email Phung at huyphung0507@gmail.com
Phungs cell # is 0904-253-491

If you plan on renting from Phung send me an email as I have a few good suggestions about additions to the toolkit he will provide

For any other info feel free to email me, click on my avatar for link

Great photos and writing. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.
I loved seeing all the curious faces and lush places.

Your journey Makes me remember all the great times with my father and inspires me to create memories with my son.


Cheers!

Inspirational Adventure

A great, informative and exciting report. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, especially about the parts of Northern Vietnam. The photos are also really spectacular conveying just how raw and untouched the North of Vietnam still is.

At the moment I am planning on doing something similar with a Friend next summer.

A big shout out to Stan for sharing this with me.
