Backpacking Teacher

Travel, teaching and things in between. Saigon is the focus for now.

All the best walks start with good coffee (or in this case ca phe)

All the best walks start with good coffee. In this case that good coffee is from a local chain store called Highlands which, appropriately enough, gets it’s coffee from the Highlands of Vietnam. The ca phe sua da (iced coffee) is sweet and robust which is a good way to describe our upcoming walk. Only we’re likely to feel the robust part before the sweet part.

As our flight draws nearer I’m feeling surprisingly apprehensive. I’m wandering if this really is a good choice of holidays. We could have been in Bali instead. Oh well, I have faith in my previous experience and, having travelled a bit, know that this travel nervousness is normal. It’ll dissapear the first day we step out onto the pyrenees.

Our sweet but robust journey is about to begin.

  2. Thanks for the best wishes Michael. I guess blogging’s a habit I just need to get back into.
