Vietnam, Thap Ba Hot Springs – Shower Fail

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 18.50.54

I think I accidentally wandered into the ladies shower, only kidding they were communal showers, not that the ladies seemed remotely bothered about me being there.

Vietnam – On the train to Nahtrang

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 18.26.01

I love travelling by train in foreign countries. It’s fairly straightforward in Vietnam. The cabins are nice and comfortable and clean and there’s food and drink available.

It’s definitely one of my favourite ways to travel, plus you see a lot more of the country if you travel by train.

Vietnam – Wish I was back there

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 18.23.01

Wish I was back there instead of cold, dark Bristol. (Not that I don’t love Bristol – i do)

I need to get back on the road asap.

I also wish I could grow a nice full beard instead of that sparse effort.

Vietnam – Photographing a rather ornate cemetary

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 18.17.24

This was an odd place. A cemetery right next to a beach. I think there were people actually living inside it. I don’t think they were very happy with my presence so I didn’t stick around.

I’ve been to 40 or so countries and only had a handful of close shaves. I’ve heard some real horror stories but fortunately nothing too bad has ever happened to me (famous last words).

You just need to be streetwise and trust your instincts.

Vietnam, Hue – Looking for the angle

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 18.14.06

This was taken somewhere in Hue, we hired a motorbike for the day and just rode around.

I love hiring a bike and just seeing where it takes me.That said It’s worth doing a bit of research before you blindly ride off into the sunset just in case you end up somewhere you really shouldn’t be. I think I have a good instinct for when an area doesn’t feel right. Definitely research any no-go areas when you are going to a foreign country – it could save your life.

Vietnam, Hue – Photographing the Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh Guardian Statues

Screen Shot 2016-02-05 at 17.29.43

I love Vietnam. In fact I think it’s my favourite South East Asian country.

I love everything about it, the people, the weather, the food, everything. There really is a photo to be taken every few steps you take.

Here I am shooting the Guardian Statues (who were very happy to pose for me) at the Tomb of Emperor Khai Dinh in Hue, Vietnam. Again, another fascinating place to visit.
