I have two things to confess.
Confession number 1:
I am not the smartest bear in the tech savy woods. I wouldn’t go so far as to say technologically challenged, I do ok but I am being quickly upgraded in technology terms thanks to Alex. Now, technically that’s not a “thank you” as the jury is still out on whether this is a good or bad thing so will hold off on praise for Alex for now.
Eiffel Tower, Paris France
With one picture of this landmark, most people will instantly recognise the location… yes, it is the Eiffel Tower, Paris, France. Continue reading
I am in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hoi An. I spent yesterday enjoying wandering the old city and today I have booked myself on a half day bus tour of the My Son ruins.
London Eye capsule
Once upon a time I went to London and while in London I went on the London Eye. It was and still is one of London’s most prominent landmarks and is basically a big (443 feet tall) ferris wheel.
On the road, thankfully on a bus and not a motorbike
Today I moved on from one world heritage site to another. I booked myself on an 8:00am bus from Hue to Hoi An. Approximate bus time is 3 hours to Hoi An so I take the time (not all 3 hours obviously) to text Alex: “I am on bus nearing Hoi An (beach) and meeting others.” Ok, it’s not exactly “War and Peace” but still a thoughtful update ….
Seaford Beach, Melbourne Australia
How good is this. It has taken Alex and me 30 minutes to get to Seaford Beach, Melbourne by car, using the Eastern Freeway all the way and passing through a total of a mere 3 traffic lights (too easy). It is 5:00pm on a Saturday and still about 32 degrees. There is hardly anybody on the beach, the water is perfect and there is the occasional tease of a breeze.
I am in Hue, Vietnam and it is day ten of my month long journey travelling north-south through Vietnam. It is the first real rainy day so I take the chance to sleep in. I am on my own today as the others (my brother, his girlfriend and their mate) wanted to move on already. I have stayed on an extra day as I wanted to look at the walled Citadel and Imperial City so I am going it alone and am excited about the day. But for a while longer… back to sleep.
