MEKONG BLOG 00
Thursday Feb 28, 2019
Only three more sleeps to go – and (usual story!) I haven’t started packing! But it’ll get it done, even if it’s in the wee small hours. And, come Sunday evening, what doesn’t get done really won’t matter … because we’ll be up-up-and-away to Singapore, Hanoi and beyond!
MIDLIFE MADNESS ON THE MEKONG: that’s what we’ve got planned – in fascinating, colourful, utterly different Indochina. It’s one region of the world that truly gets under your skin: Frenchified Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (in what was North and South Vietnam) … the bustling Mekong with its floating villages, fish-farms, floating markets, and more … quaint Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia … the mind-boggling World Heritage monuments of Angkor Wat.
And we’ll be seeing much of this from the decks of the beautifully appointed Avalon Siem Reap … soaking up the atmosphere on the legendary Mekong River … watching famous sites, rural scenes and jungle landscapes glide slowly past our big cabin windows … adventuring ashore several times each day … and being pampered day and night …
(I bet YOU wish you were coming – right?)
In short, we’re gonna have a BALL! But more of that later – because Robyn’s reminding me I’ve got stuff to do!
I’ll add more blog entries once this journey’s actually underway … let you know what our fellow-travellers get up to … and include some award-winning pix. So, whatever you do, stay tuned …
Yours bloggedly – JOHN
