From Nha Trang to Dalat as Easy Riders

We finally did what we talked about A LOT and never thought we would do on this trip. We drove a motorcycle from Nha Trang to Da Lat with an Easy Rider tour! We really didn’t think this was possible with a toddler and we’re so very happy we did it anyway. It was a gorgeous ride and all three of us had a really good time. The Vietnam Easy … Read more

But that’s the problem with planning ahead. It gives you a bit more peace of mind not having to decide what to do at the last moment, but it also compromises your flexibility. We booked a flight from Manado … Read more
