Hi all

Thought I would post up a link to the trip blog for our upcoming return to Vietnam

Continuing the saga from Nambusters II, we will be starting in Hanoi again and heading generally west to the Laos border, before working our way north west towards Sapa almost all off-road. We'll then head across over Sapa and finish up in Lao Cai before taking the bikes back to Hanoi on the overnight sleeper train, which is always an interesting experience!

More info on the blog, which is located here: http://nambusters.blogspot.co.uk

In particular this post: http://nambusters.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/nambusters-3.html

There will be some posts in the upcoming months as we get ready for the trip, then it will go quiet while we're away, and when we're back I'll write up the report for each day.

Also to give you a bit of a flavour, here are a few short videos we made from the last trip. More vids to come as I get through the footage.

Thanks for posting the videos - next time I am complaining about the traffic here in Thailand I'll think back on your Part 1 of Nambusters II that there are places where the traffic is worse.

Heh heh :)

Believe it or not, traffic was light that day! It was at the start of Tet (new year) so much of Hanoi was closed. Traffic was much heavier on NB 1.
