I Made it to Vietnam!!!
Oh man...first huge hurdle leaped. No one told me about the visa you had to get to get into this crazy place called Vietnam. So I have spent the last week while in the beaches, pictures to come sooooooon, freaking out about getting my visa. Basically, a lot of man hours went into getting the thing online when I could have gotten it in Bangkok or the states. Note to future travelers: take care of visas BEFORE you get to Vietnam. Yikes.
But, im here!! Sorry, no pics yet cause I have to figure out how to get them off my camera without a cord (advice anyone?) cause I have some AMAZING ones of Koh Phi Phi and Karon Beach. Now, im in nutsville, also known as Ho Chi Mihn City. This place is like Bangkok on speed and whatever uppers its pharmacist could hook it up with. Im staying in the backpackers alley and im pretty sure no one sleeps around here.
So, on to the next phase! I just have to learn how to cross the streets while diving over motorbikes. Its like Frogger, Vietnamese style.
More to come soon...
