Hanoi and Halong Bay

There are nine trillion motorbikes in Hanoi 🎶 

That’s a fact 🎶

They’ll run you over and you’ll die 🎶

They’re on the pavement;

and it’s too late to ask why 🎶

My totally original song, to be sung to Katie Melua’s tune


I’m heading east from Hanoi. I can’t recommend the street menu, as the added food poisoning was not the greatest thing to ever happen to me. Two stars.

This is as close as I could get to Lucozade and Digestive biscuits

Everyone is burning money in the street. I asked around and it’s a local superstition, for the beginning of the lunar month.

I’ve made my way to Ha Long Bay. I’ve checked into my favourite type of hotel – one undergoing redecorating. Half price, and I get all the ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️’s to myself.

Ha Long is foggy today. I’d love to show you the towering limestone cliffs, but I can’t see them myself yet.
