Saturday 30th June Touchdown Hanoi! Due to a few delays at the airport we arrived much later than expected. First impressions of Hanoi as the capital of Vietnam? Pretty cool and chilled. Our hotel was situated in the old French quarters which was ideal and right at the heart of the action. As the name suggests, this part of Hanoi serves as a throwback to how the architecture and design of the city was whilst under French ruling. Nowadays it is a thriving commercial area of sorts that caters...

Wednesday 27th June Nha Trang was the place that we chose as our relaxation spot so I really did not do much, if any 'touristy' things. Our night train arrived in the early hours of the morning and the hotel was not ridiculously far from the station which was good. The vibe was so different to that of Ho Chi Minh, understandably so. We were conveniently located near the beach though I would say that it wasn't the most beachy place I've been to. There was another area that had more room but of a...

Sunday 24th June After a long coach journey I have finally arrived in Ho Chi Minh.

The coach used travelling to Phnom Penh was great and the best coach I've been...

Be careful where you buy your tickets and make sure that it is an official place as there are counterfeit ones. Luckily our hotel was able to hook us up and we went to the right place. You'll have to take a photo at the venue using a...

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17 (NIV) Iron sharpens iron. If God is indeed our friend and our God, He should be able to sharpen us. Have you watched a video of a blacksmith beating iron into submission? The beating is not meant to cause pain or damage but rather to refine the object. Now, imagine that you are the iron and God is 'beating' you into submission. Painful, right? Thing is, we are not objects but beings with flesh and a heart that beats and...
