I decided to go on this trip very quickly. When I heard that my friends were going to make their motorbikes trip from the South of Vietnam to Ha Noi, then started exploring the beautiful highland province in the North, and they welcomed me to join if I could find myself a driver. And after a little time persuading my flatmate, we eventually joined them from Ha Noi. And that was the most amazing 2 weeks I have ever had until now.
The North of Vietnam has many different themes of beauty at the certain time of the year. It blossoms with apricot flower in Spring. Or green will cover the whole fields when the rice fully-grown. It is dyed with yellow the whole terrace field during harvesting time. We arrived there at the beginning of November, the time was not really right to see any particular scenes, but, for some reasons, we had a chance to see a little bit of everything. And that how lucky we were.
After landed in Hanoi, we started exploring this traditional and ancient city. Hanoi is very different from Ho Chi Minh city. But I cannot tell yet what exactly is it. I will surely spend more time exploring there one day.
The main point of this trip is riding. We spent a lot of our time on the road, on bikes, wandering through all the most beautiful mountain pass under crazy sunshine, fog, rain, and sometimes all of them at a time. It was a fantastic time and I guess we had our best luck that the weather supported us. I only brought my film camera and Iphone 5s, so I didn’t really have many great and amazing photos of these places. But all my photos from my vintage film camera and Iphone do remind me of those happy time. I will write more details another time about each place I have been to in this trip. Now enjoy my photos, maybe this will become your next trip this spring.
