Our 8 hour round trip to Halong Bay was certainly an adventure, but completely worth every second. Olly claims he was sat next to a gay Greek who was touching his leg on the cramped bus but I beg to differ.
We enjoyed a sea food lunch on the cruise (not quite P&O G’ma), and Ol managed to eat a bowl of rice, and cheekily asked the table next to us if he could have there’s, too. The ship is empty because everyone is on the top deck admiring the views whilst Olly remains transfixed by the food!
We then went kayaking on a two man boat and Olly almost capsized us, not realising you’re not supposed to lean over the sides – Shaun we nearly said goodbye to your waterproof camera!
When we got back to Hanoi at 8pm, we were starving. Olly ordered his usual sausage baguette but saw the girl who was making it eat the majority of his sausage haha.
We’re planning on exploring the old town tomorrow but Hanoi was thunderstorming this morning so not sure yet. I’m determined to try some ‘egg coffee’ tomorrow, with raw egg floating on the top of cold coffee.
