A quick update from Vietnam

We landed in Hanoi on July 3o and were welcomed by a even more humid heat than we were already used to from our time in Thailand. Traveling during the Monsoon season has it’s advantages and disadvantages as we know ;). We had planned to visit Halong Bay on a day trip but a tropical storm was headed towards the Bay and therefore all daytrips were cancelled 😒. This is why we missed one of the highlights of our Vietnam trip. On the other hand we got to know Hanoi quite well and enjoyed a lot of Bahn Mi (the local sandwich made out of a small baguette roll and different stuffings) and Saigon style iced coffees :).

Dass die Zeit wie im Fluge vergeht wissen wir ja alle und dass das auf einer längeren Reise nicht anders ist, das ist dann wohl eher keine grosse Überraschung 😉. In dem Sinne sind auch unsere acht Wochen hier auf Bali ziemlich schnell vorbei gegangen.

Peru

We have travelled across the Border from Bolivia to Peru and visited the border town Puno which is at lake Titicaca. The town itself is nothing special, but we've slept two nights on the famous floating islands of Uros. It was very cold at night (-2° Celcius) but we had an amazing time.

Bolivia

First of all we have to say, that this is the country that suprised us the most so far. We expected a third world country (which it is) but there has been a lot going on in the last 10 and especially 2 years in relation to tourism and infrastructure.

Los Antiguos and Bariloche

Since the bus ride from El Chalten to Bariloche would take 20 hours, we've decided to break it up and stayed in Los Antiguos for one night and head on the day afterwards. We feel it was the right decision and we did love our Hostel in Los Antiguos. It was located 1km outside of the town and we had the place practically to ourselves.
