Where I stayed
Hiep Hoa Resort
We packed up and pedalled the 200m from the stuffy cupboard to the lovely beach front and sat in reception with iced coffees to wait for the big arrival! (It is insanely hot again now.) Dan and Clare had got a taxi, but realised they had actually only been 500m down the road. They’d had a bit of a nightmare trying to find a room at 3.30 in the morning, but look very tanned and relaxed already.
After checking them in we got straight on the beach to negotiate kite surfing lessons
Daniel carried on after the hour as he had ditched the training kite after about 5 minutes and was rigged up in a proper one. He then got into the water body dragging. His instructor was raving about the fact that he’d never seen anyone learn so quickly and he should be using the board tomorrow – Typical!! He has watched all the DVD’s on the subject – geek.
A delicious meal followed by a bit a shark wrestling by Dan made the first of many fantastic evenings. We’ve looked into the route ahead and calculated that we can have 4 more days off here and leave on the 11th to cycle to Saigon. We’ll then have 5 weeks to cycle to Singapore, with 4 days off – should be nice and fit by the time we meet Giles and Char! We’re going to load Dan and Clare up with all of our winter gear to take home so hopefully a bit less weight will speed us up too.
Miles Cycled: About 200m to our new room!
