A “Lockdown Break” to Southern Bohemia – August 2020 The year of 2020 will long be remembered for the disruption and dismay caused to all our lives by the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. With the benefit of hindsight, it is easy to see now that a lot of things were done wrongly, but in […]
Thursday, August 27th, 2020 – Český Krumlov to Prague Distance travelled – 302 kilometres As always, I woke up very early – but it was already quite light and the sun was giving serious thought to rising. I left Lucie sleeping, grabbed the camera and headed out. At that time in the morning, it […]
Vietnam on two small wheels – 2013 We love to travel to unusual and far away places and we very much prefer to do it under our own schedule. Organised holidays, like sitting on a beach for two weeks, are really not for us. We do like, if possible to have our own transport. This […]

Distance travelled today 0 kilometres – Total distance travelled 176 kilometres We woke up, still in Vinh Long, to another beautiful morning.

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013 – Vinh Long to Ho Chi Minh City Distance travelled today 142 kilometres – Total distance travelled 318 kilometres In the morning everything went well and we finally said goodbye to Vinh Long at around half past eight.

Thursday, March 14th, 2013 – Ho Chi Minh City to Bao Loc Distance travelled today 208 kilometres – Total distance travelled 526 kilometres Today, I will start the narrative from the very end.
