Last Days in Hanoi for my Winter 2017 Trip

Two more nights to go before the flight to Bangkok.

Hanoi Lucky Guesthouse

Booked at the Hanoi Lucky Guesthouse in the “Backpacker Quarter”. This is the best place in Hanoi if you ask me. Lots of small streets with still a lot of original stores and in the weekend they close down a few streets and it turns into a big open air bar and shopping district. Let’s talk about shopping – if you go to 10 different shop you saw it all. Lots of fake cloths and bags and other tourist bullshit. If you skim the “Art Galleries” you might find a pearl in all the “same same but different” copy works. I found one last year and I am quite happy with it – still!

Not really big but very good for 11$ a night – with breakfast. Which I skipped to get a tasty one in a sandwich shop.

Pictures like this on as well – It was Sunday and the road next to the lake is closed for traffic. Great for a walk and to do some PPL watching.

Mailin and her boyfriend was in town – finally reunion. The poor boy was sick and stayed in the room. We had dinner and a few local brews at a small place at the corner next to my hotel. Later we walked to the hotel to have a beer on their rooftop. Great view and nobody else up there.

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.
