Winter 17/18 From Phố Ràng to Nà Hang

It was a gray day again. Light rain in the morning so I took it easy and had two coffee. After the rain stopped I finally started to pack the bag on the bike. Drove out of the hotel at 10:28 for the next part of the trip.

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.
