Take a day trip to the Mekong Delta!

Ho Chi Minh is amazing, but after a few days in the city I was eager to see more of Vietnam and explore the countryside. We originally booked a day trip to the Mekong Delta river for Boxing Day but it was cancelled due to the aftermath of a typhoon in the Philippines which was heading to Vietnam. Luckily the day trip went ahead on the following day and we could just about squeeze it into our schedule before heading to Cambodia.  Continue reading “Take a day trip to the Mekong Delta!”

Cali Road Trip: Santa Cruz

After changing our plans due to the mega landslide on the Californian coast at the time of our travels we had one night spare and needed a new destination to visit, we chose Santa Cruz and I’m so glad that we did. Our original plan was to drive down from Monterey to Cambria and then up to Yosemite National Park.  However, with the road damage it was possible to still get to Cambria but it would have meant a 40+ mile diversion in land and no scenic coastal drive for us which would have been a huge shame. It turned out that our hotel booking in Cambria was the only hotel that hadn’t been paid for and we had no problems cancelling it – it was almost like it was meant to be!
