Winter 17/18 From Sìn Hồ⁩ to Điện Biên Phủ

Monument of Victory

Today we started to drive South again. Starting on the DT 128 over the mountains with lots of mountains to see. Quite easy once you on the QL 12 which is a bigger road. It was hazy but dry with blue sky over us. A nice day riding towards Điện Biên Phủ.

That worked like clockwork again. Riding into town – took a right into that street and stopped at this place. Guess I liked the paint job? And we found a super place – as usually.

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.
