We are landing in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and pretty soon after the plane comes to a halt we are heading for a sand-filled beachy-type place (yet to be determined) then gradually making our way up North, one funky spot at a time (yet to be determined) until we hit the Chinese border (the border has been determined and we plan on stopping just short of it in a town called Sapa). The vacation comes to an end on day 41 when we fly out of Hanoi. As you can see, the precise vacation intinerary is a little vague at the moment (don't worry Ruth, it's all under control, haha). It's not like the old days, when you could hit the ground running and basically figured the country out as you bounced along. Kids - they change things. I think at 19mths old, Keegan is a bit young for hardcore hostelling and such.
Well, as the details get ironed out I will post some of it up. I already have my little peabrain stuffed to the limits with tips, comments, routes, pricing, things to watch out for - essentially a ton of Internet research. If anyone has been recently or has something to say on the matter, drop me a line.
