The adventure has been continuing, and what an adventure it is.
It started with our first night train to Nha Trang. Night trains are an experience in themselves. This one was a good one, we went to the restaurant cart and played uno and cards for hours before finally going to bed. The train was also delayed so we had two hours extra sleep. So Nha Trang, great couple of days. We arrived early in the morning, had a couple of hours to chill beforer heading off to the mud baths and hot springs. Well five of us went instead of the seven because of illness, so it was me, Matt, Danceski, Mark and Kerstin. This place was amazing, the mud was awesome, the hot spring bath was awesome and then we just chilled out.
Back to town for food and a walk on the beach, then to the hotel for a quick dip in the freezing pool in the rain and then off out for the night. We ended up at Why Not? Bar where we stayed for most of the night after having food and playing connect 4 at an Australian bar. At Why Not? Bar we just chilled for a bit, played some pool and had a bit of a dance. We were just about to leave when Danceski but his foot down (well more like slapped Matt in the face lol) and said we were staying. That guy is hilarious. So we stayed and partied hard for a while before finally setting off home via the Sailor's Club leaving Danceski behind to party the night away.
Next day we went to Vinpearl Land. Possibly the best day so far. This island has all sorts of things, including waterpark, arcade and fairground rides as well as a cable car to get there and an aquarium. The five of us again spent most of the day in the waterpark which was so much fun. I got a little injury, no surprise there, as me and Matt went head first on a double doughnut down one of the slides and i came off and burned my elbow on the slide. Good times all round lol. All the slides and wave pool were good but we eventually left to go to the aquarium. This was pretty good, lots of interesting stuff to see before going to the rides and arcade before leaving.
That night we took our second night train to Hoi An. This train wasn't as good as the first. There was no restaurant cart and as we went looking for one we saw some people sleeping in pretty poor standards and comfort level carts. Hoi An was good though, this is the place where the suits are made, which a few people had done. I just lazed about after an early lunch on the first day before setting out in the night for food and then to wait till 12 at a bar for Mark's birthday. This one was Happy Why Not Bar lol. We eventually set off home getting lost and eventually jumping in a taxi. The next day I went for a wander to get some lunch then went looking round Cam Nam Island for forty five minutes trying to find the beach. I never got there as the beach was on the main island. So back to the hotel agin to chill and sit at the pool before going to a cooking class. We were taken to the market to buy some of the ingredients and learn about the food before heading to the restaurant to do the cooking. This whole thing was fun, as the cooking was fun and the girl taking the class was funny. This was also the best food we have eaten since we have been here.
Now since it was Mark's birthday we went to the terrace to play drinking uno. Unfortunately i drank too much and was sick and got taken to bed. Thats the last time i play drinking uno with rum and vodka. Was still a good day though.
So I am now in Hue. As you can imagine i havent been too good for most of the day but i still managed to get lunch, go to the forbidden city where i took some photos and now i feel fine so we have just got back from dinner. Thats about all for now. Just heading to Halong Bay tomorrow, which is going to be a thirteen hour train leaving at 2 in the afternoon followed by a four hour bus ride. Long day ahead of me.
So i will catch up with all of you when i can, im going to bed now cos im shattered.
