We got the sleeper train (which was surprisingly comfortable with the exception of two lovely large red mosquito bites on my arms) from Ho Chi Minh to Nha trang. We were welcomed at the hotel with a large cockroach (probably the biggest I've ever seen) outside the lift lol! Everything ok otherwise :)

Nha Trang is a different world from Ho Chi Minh! We came here at 5:15 in the morning and I was just so happy to see no traffic lol Dave lives in Nha Trang and he booked a private beach for us! I felt like a celebrity :) The beach was called Bandai beach and was lovely and clean with no vendors. We had barbequed seafood and noodles for lunch and enjoyed the lovely weather!

After lunch I attempted surfing for the first time...and the board hit the left side of my face hard after the 5th try...I got a cut and swollen lip (no tooth damage I checked carefully...yay!) but everything is fine now. Maybe I'll wait till proper lessons next time lol!

This evening we are going for dinner with the group, dave's wife and kids (which are so cute) somewhere in town followed by a beach party :D.

The plan for tomorrow is a boat trip and snorkelling so will keep you posted! Xx

Neha on

I think you should leave the surfing to the professionals and come ice-skating with me instead! It seems safer! ;D
