Cycling Vietnam local start date 22 December 2019

Hey guys,

Almost time for our epic journey to begin. I think it would be a nice idea if we all arrannge a dinner on our first night in HCM so we can get to know our fellow crew. Anyone have any ideas of where to go for dinner?

Hi Sean,

I was in HCM last Summer. There are lots of restaurants/cafes/street vendors near the Hotel. The Hotel also has a  nice roof garden that serves food and drinks also. Reasonable prices, but food is mediocre in Hotel.

This Exodus blog is a great idea, but uses very old "technology" and difficult to navigate, so I think most do not use or see this blog.

Anyway, I am realy looking forward now. Weather is really bad here, so training is none existent, but hopefully not resorting to the bus that much. The suitcase is half packed already, and hopefully stays that way, so I can come back with some Vietnam souvenirs. 

I'm not sure what to pack for the cycling in the hills of Dalat or Hanoi, as I read that it may be cooler, but sure I'll work it out.

Hey David,

Yeah its a shame more of the group arent more engaging so we can get some banter going before we all meet up. I'm sure there is plently of time later for that. Do you know how many have signend up for this trip?

I'm starting to wind down from a very busy period at work so cant wait to get away for a bit of sunshine now. I see on the weather apps, its a lot cooler up north so I'll pack appropiately for the colder maybe wet conditions.

Cheers,

Sean

In 42 hours, I should be on a plane from Paris to Saigon..... If I can get to Paris. It seems like everyone is going on strike in Belgium and France tomorrow.

When I booked in October, there were 7 and the price of flights from Europe was already high, I think there will not be many more. 

Nearly packed, half a day of work tomorrow followed by our Xmas party, then wondering towards Paris for my flight.

 

Hi  Im Janine

Would love to join group for dinner first night. I understand there are 13 in our group.

Hey guys,

It's almost time! one more day of work for me! its been crazy busy this last few weeks I'm really looking forward to having a nice break, saying that cycling the whole length of a country isnt exactly relaxing! We can arrange the dinner on the first night once we all get to the hotel. I'm sure there are lots of options as we are quite central. I'll be going out later to watch football in one of the many sports bars too.

Hi guys,

The trip is almost upon us, my last day in the office before I can start enjoying my holiday. I'm sure we all can arrange dinner once we all get to the hotel. There are apparently lots of options so it will be cool. I'm going out later to watch the football if anyone wants to join me? :)
