Day 1: French Polynesia

Last summer, I travelled to French Polynesia ☀️🌍. I left my home in France 🇨🇵, and I spend more than 36 hours on the plane ✈️ before I arrived in paradise. When I walked out of the airport in Tahiti, I was already in the Tahitian ambiance, directly I had a beautiful flower 🌸 necklace…

Vietnam : Day 14 “The 3 Islands”

We got up at 8am to catch a bus to get to the Mekong river, the biggest river in the world. At 4500 km from Tibet to Vietnam, this river crosses through 6 different countries such as China, Burma (Myanmar), Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and of course, Vietnam. We had a day tour to visit 3…

Saigon (Part 2) : 300 Years

After shaking off the sadness from the War Museum, we visited the “Notre Dame de Saigon”, which was a gift from the French to spread Roman Catholicism. We also visited the local markets, which were a bit nicer and cleaner than the ones I have seen earlier. After the markets, we saw the opera building…

Vietnam : Day 12 ” Monkey Mountain & Train to Saigon”

At 09:00 we Berkeley got ready and jumped on our moped to the monkey mountains which was 30 minutes from our hotel. As we got closer the road was getting higher and higher and he became harder for the motorbike to go further. I’m top of that our vehicle was forcing so much gas but…

Vietnam : Day 11 “Ba’na Hill: The City of Clouds”

The receptionist called us porkers.🐽 Why? I don’t know. “Don’t go by wheels” it’s too far, you’re going to spend 1 hour and a half because of the bad conditions of the roads, and traffic too! It’s dangerous”, she said. “It’s better to call a taxi…look, here, I have number!” WRONG! The roads were in excellent…

Vietnam : Day 10 “Da Nang”

After these intense last few days we rested the whole morning before grabbing a shuttle to Dan Nang, which is the 3rd economical city of Vietnam. As we arrived, we noticed that it was not a big city, the population was roughly a million. We found a hotel near the beach and they were renting…

Vietnam : Day 9 “My Son Temple”

At 07:30 in the morning I went to visit one of the oldest Hindu temple in Vietnam called “My Son Temple”. It was about an hour away from Hoi An. The reason why we got up so early to get there was because around noon the heat would become so intense. As soon as we…

The tour guide fetched us at the hotel reception at 8am and we sat in van with 10 other people and headed straight to Hoi An port where a boat was waiting for us. In total we were 25 people altogether and the driving instructors were Australians. We sailed for about an hour before reaching…

Vietnam : Day 7 “Hoi An”

We left our hotel around 8am to ride a 4 hour bus ride to Hoi An. Damn, Viet buses are so unusual and why are they always 4 hours long to get to anywhere? But besides that the buses don’t have regular seats. Instead you lay down than sitting. I felt like I was riding…

Vietnam : Day 6 “Bach Ma National Park”

We woke up at 8am and our tour guide took us to a park that was highly recommended by Dam. Damn, I miss her. In the bus there were 4 other guys – 2 English men and a couple from Iceland. It took us about an hour to reach Bach Ma National Park. We drove…
