Nicole is the Alberto Granado to my Che Guevara.
Or is she Che, and I, Alberto?
The bike I wanted but too small for the both of us…nor could it go more than 40mph
Our helmets from back home. We didn’t trust the Vietnam standard of safety…
She’s pretty thrilled about getting to Hải Vân Pass. Note: This is one of the BEST driving roads in the world.
When we got to the top of the mountain, we found a little known strong hold from the war.
Ha Long Bay. Translation: Descending Dragon Bay
Our little private beach in the middle of Ha Long Bay fully equipped with hot water, only from 8-10PM, clogged toilets that are sucked out in the morning by a septic boat and painfully chilled nights. BUT we had a rock climbing instructor!
Christmas tree in Ha Long Bay. Juxtaposition anyone?
This is pretty much what the middle of Vietnam looks like.
The entire country is pretty much covered in rice fields. Hence why they’re the 2nd biggest exporters of rice.
After a hard day’s work.
Quintessential rural Vietnam.
There were cold nights. So cold that Nicole refused to take her gloves off and instead, snapped pictures with her nose.
Lost in the middle of no where.
I can’t do a travel blog without an old wrinkly man. I JUST LOVE THEM!
When we finally made our way into Cambodia for Christmas!
Angkor Wat just made for a nice backdrop for my real attraction. MONKEYS!
We’re lunch buddies.
Nicole was also taken in by the monkeys.
A group of monks checking out a bombed temple (One of many casualties from the Khmer Rouge regime) in Siem Reap.
Getting her praying on.
Big temple. Little people.
Angkor Wat is ABSOLUTELY amazing! Which is why I really wish they closed it off from the public. We’re only going to ruin it.
These guys should be the only ones touching this temple.
I found an odd-looking monkey by Ta Prohm.
Learning the ways of the monkey.
Cambodia is an AMAZING honeymoon locale. I’d personally prefer it over a Bora Bora or Maui…
THE bridge over the river Kwai.
When Nicole met a rather large kitty cat.
This is how the Thai’s play tug of war…Notice the team work on the cat’s end.
She soon saw something…much larger.
My favorite 4 legged creature in the world! Sorry Chubs…
We took a bath with one.
