Found a vegetarian restaurant in Kon Tum!

When I checked in there where 5 girls cleaning the stairs and I had to pass all of them with the girl who showed me to my room. “Hello Sir”, “Good afternoon” and “Hello” – Happy welcome!

The room at Hong My Hotel - small but clean

The room at the Hong My Hotel – small but clean and the air-con working very good. I did need it – we had 39 degrees outside today.

The next morning the girl at the reception was a bit confused. She wanted 200.000 Dong (8,20€) for the room and I told her I had two 333 beer and two Heineken as well as some Bird whatever that looked like Ice Coffee but tasted like Bubble Tea – so it went down the drain since I could really not drink more than one sip.
Somehow she did not understand nothing. After I wrote down 333 x 2 and Heineken x 2 and 1 x Bird something drink she understand and went to work. While she was busy with her calculator she walkie-talkied somebody of the stuff to check the mini bar. Than she was ready and I gave her the cash – the same second the girl on the other walkie talkie reported back from the room – saved me 5000 from the Bird drink since is was only 25.000 and not 30.000.

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
