Total Distance to Date: 500.04km Total Time to Date: 29 hours, 57 minutes Yesterday marked a full weeks worth of riding, but today – I went over the 500km mark (just)! It was a short one today (possibly the shortest I’ll have for the entire time in Vietnam). I’d originally planned to stop in Thai Hoa for the night, but …

Total Distance to Date: 471.28km Total Time to Date: 28 hours, 13 minutes Today marks a full weeks worth of riding in Vietnam – this is day number 7!

Total Distance to Date: 177.22km Total Time to Date: 10 hours, 13 minutes It feels like this whole riding thing is really beginning now. Day One and Day Two just felt like little testers – I’ve seen how I can go now, and I knew I’d be having a nice island break once I’d finished with them. Now though, it’ll …
