Vietnam: my personal backpacking highlights

Short personal highlights of Vietnam: 2 months backpacking review. Traveling is not something you are Good at. It's something you Do. Like Breathing.
"How you feel if registered Hanoi Taxi driver would point UZI machine gun in your head? Would you like to write an open letter now, thanking somebody who saved your life?"

UPDATE. I've spent 2 months in Vietnam only and you know what... it was different Southeast Asia experience. It's like Love & Hate feeling at the same time. Adventure pumping through the veins. It's not party time, it's not only amazing sightseeing or East beaches.. the best word to describe Vietnam is Adventure. Doesn't matter what you are going to read in few moments.
Trust me. It's worth to visit Vietnam.


How you feel if registered Hanoi Taxi driver would point UZI machine gun in your head? Would you like to write an open letter now, thanking somebody who saved your life? Well this one is on my shortlist. It will be difficult to express Thank You, cause it happen so quickly. Thank You Claire for saving my life.

Adventuresome: it's a real word
Option 2. Get in to serious motorbike accident in the middle of Vietnam. It's raining cats and dogs here. At least 50 locals around me. Some just watching, some trying to find my missing shoe, some recording taking pictures, some asking " you ok! you ok! you ok!". I look around. I am trying to in-hale. I have no idea what's happening around me at the moment but little loud people mean no harm to me here. 10 meters away my motorbike laying on the side in the middle of the road. Huge oil leakage. All front side absolutely wrecked, front lights gone, suspension, front bar, tire... I guess I'm not riding tonight. Weather isn't Purfect.


Wait. Wait fooor it. Adventuresome.

You are backpacking. You are NOT on  package holidays. You might be unlucky once or few times. But it's worth the risk. At some point we all need this. We all need this to understand: we can inhale and exhale.
Traveling is not something you are good at. It's something you do. LIKE BREATHING.

Ps. Vietnam Travel Guide is coming soon (promise to be more serious than highlights).
