For some reason I have found myself more scared of driving a moto (moped) than I thought I would be, this is probably because the first hotel that let me try gave me a heavy bike which could be manual and I dropped it when I tried a u-turn. Now I think I’m going to fall over whenever I stop. Luckily, however, my travel partner has embraced it and not yet fallen off even with me clinging on the back like a cat clings to your favourite jumper. It also halves the costs which is more important.

The Kindle seems to me one of the most essential things in my backpack, for those empty hours or long journeys on the train. The device itself is cheap, small, has long battery life and is hardy. There are so many books available for free that if you choose to read them you will become well versed in classic literature, and that can never be a bad thing, you will also get to read some of the best stories ever written free of charge. Despite thorough use I have charged the Kindle a maximum of four times in three months. A tablet computer does not compare when it comes to readability as the e-ink is essential in the sun when a tablet would only provide you with a white glare.
After travelling from hotel to hotel/hostel to hostel for three months we
decided it was time to take a holiday from all the hard work and chill out in a beach resort for a week. For this we chose Mui Ne and managed to find a beachside resort with a pool for £9 a night between us. Being far more interested in quaint towns and people watching this was quite a unique experience. The entire town (being one road about 6km long) is there for the sole purpose of tourism.
