Due to freak weather conditions that have been going on in China and the fact me and Louise are only really fully prepared to enjoy cold weather down to about 10 degrees, not minus 10 as it is in Beijing, we have had to make a decision to stay in Vietnam longer and miss out China altogether along with Hong Kong. We are very upset about this as it was something we were very much looking forward to, but because of the cost to buy extra gear would mean we wouldn't have as much money to enjoy the places and so financially it makes sense. It also means that we will have to come over here again which is a brilliant excuse for another holiday but just maybe in the summer time. This means we are spending more time in Vietnam travelling down south, we are then going to Cambodia and finally flying to Tokyo at the beginning of April. We are sad but happy that we get to see so much more of this beautiful country.
