Xin Chao!!! (hello!)
We are currently in Hanoi (capital of Vietnam).We spent the first 2 days of our trip in the madness of Bangkok, where we went to the Grand Place, which is basically a massive house that the king built, all very lovely and shiney!!! They are mad about the king in thailand, who's been king for 61 years (for all u boffins!). We had our first encounter with an elephant walking down our road, just a normal day!!
On arrival to Vietnam, we were in for a bit of a shock to exactly how crazy the place is, there was too much to take in!! Now we've found our feet, we've been chilling out and absolutely love it already. Simple things like crossing the road are (were) an adventure, but think we've mastered it now, touch wood!! We've got a cracking little hostel next to a beautiful lake, that u could wander round all day and night. We will try and upload some photos, however somebody forgot the connecting cable, leave you to guess who (the unreliable one!).
Lots of love xxx
