So as you all know we spent an extra night in Ninh Binh and decided to visit some caves and go for a bit of an explore. we headed to Tam Coc as this is a it more country side and also a popular tourist destination. We had a really nice day looking at the pagoda and hiking around to various view point the weather is still pretty rubbish but it didn’t rain today. Successful day i’ll follow with some pictures…
After this we vowed to get up early the next day (which we didn’t but we’re on holiday after all) so that we could head to Vinh, the plan is to stick to the main road now to try and make he most of the sunshine when we get further down south. It was all going well, few navigational problems as Joe thought we’d taken a short cut by going 50km out of our way but you can’t help that. Then we got stuck in a torrential downpour and I have never been so wet in all my life. Joe seems to think he’s some outdoor expert and thats why his stuffs all dry! He has a point he does have a degree in outdoor pursuits, and I thought I was coming on a 7 month holiday in the sun not some kind of arctic exhibition therefore am less prepared. Overall not a bad day though, we made good time and got here safely Vinh is just a city and not much we want to do here so I think i’ll get my head stuck into my book and pray it doesn’t rain tomorrow! Fingers crossed!!
PS. I think i’ve finally caught up with blog posts so unless the internet is rubbish in the next few days there should be one every other day or so.
