Leaving Mộc Châu and taking another new road, QL43, heading north towards the Sông Đà. On the plateau to begin with it was rainy and shrouded in fog, dropping down into the valleys below the fog cleared to show these amazing views... #mocchau #mộcchâu #vietnam #ql43 #vietnamjourney #valleyviews #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #greenandpleasantland #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #mountainpass #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

QL43 descends down from Mộc Châu plateau before then running through the valleys at ground level and passing through a number of little villages next to a tributary from the Sông Đà. It then rises back up again, leaving you with views back south to the valleys I just rode through.... #mistymountains #mountainviews #vietnam #ql43 #vietnamjourney #valleyviews #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #greenandpleasantland #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #mountainpass #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

How to get across the Sông Đà? By the ferry of course. Bến Phà Vạn Yên, takes 5 minutes to cross this vast river to join the other side and QL43 once more. Be warned, the people operating the ferry try to rip off foreigner for 50,000vnđ...any ferry crossing in Vietnam is never more than 20,000vnđ!! To my knowledge this is one of the only ferry crossings in North Vietnam? The majority of course being in the Mekong Delta... Oh you can say hello to my bike too, a Honda Wave S 110cc, semi-automatic. First photos I’ve taken of it to be honest... #rivercrossing #benphavanyen #vietnam #ferrycrossing #vietnamjourney #sngđà #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #blackriver #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #river #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

It’s another 27km then to the end of QL43 where it joins QL37 at Gia Phù. The road runs along the banks of the Sông Đà, passing through little villages on the shores and mini peninsula as you ride along the course of the river. Inland it had a distinct Pù Luông type vibe with the stilt houses and harvested fields... #mistymountains #mountainviews #vietnam #ql43 #vietnamjourney #valleyviews #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #greenandpleasantland #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #mountainpass #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

Joining QL37 at Gia Phù it’s then 21km west to Bắc Yên. Again a road I’d never done. I’ve been close to it so many times but never actually driven it? To have a smooth QL road kind of felt boring in comparison to the roads I’ve been doing recently?? This is just outside of Bắc Yên.... #bắcyên #mountainviews #vietnam #ql37 #vietnamjourney #valleyviews #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #greenandpleasantland #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #mountainpass #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

Turning off QL37 at Bắc Yên and onto my “holy grail” road, DT112. It’s legendary amongst people who travel across Vietnam the way I do. One of the most difficult, badly maintained roads in the whole country, it runs 93km to the north, finally ending up at Nghĩa Lộ. It’s got pieces of road missing, rock sections instead of cement, deep river crossings, uphill slippy mud sections, the lot. Not even the locals will attempt this road usually. Today I was only travelling 13km up it to the village of Tà Xùa to chase the clouds on the “Dragons backbone”, on top of the world in Vietnam following a range of mountains that have a sea of cloud beneath them. In this 13 km section I really didn’t see what all the fuss and fear were about? Sure it’s bumpy and rocky, in terrible condition but I’ve driven worse? I guess further on it becomes insane, but the 13km only took me 35 minutes to get up where,after this shot, I was enveloped in cloud city... #bắcyên #mountainviews #vietnam #dt112 #vietnamjourney #valleyviews #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #taxua #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #mountainpass #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

The “Dragons Backbone” is another 12km away. I could see it later on this evening with a sea of cloud beneath like a giant fluffy cushion. I’m so excited to see this it’s untrue!! It will be pretty much the last major thing on my bucket list of places to see in Vietnam so is a very special thing for me. Tomorrow is a 4:30am wake to drive up there to see the sunrise above the sea of clouds with the 3 peaks of Tà Xùa to hike across, on top of the world. Pray for good weather and creating lasting memories!! #taxua #txùa #vietnam #dt112 #vietnamjourney #fog #stunningscenery #travel #travelling #fogcity #backpacking #backpacker #thisisvietnam #instatravel #instatravelgram #viewpoint #justmeandtheworld #theworldisyoursandeverythinginit #wetravelnottoescapelifebutforlifenotoescapeus #exploreeverything #mountainpass #northvietnam #ilovetravel #views #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #scenicspot #vietnameselife #epicscenery #vietnam🇻🇳 #ilovevietnam

Day 14: Hallstatt/Vienna, Austria⁣⁣⁣ We went through some hassles to get to one of our dream travel destinations, Hallstatt. We had seen the photos of this Austrian village on social media several times and its beauty never failed to amaze us. So we thought, we needed to see it with our own eyes, even if it was just for an hour, before heading back to Vienna. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Its scenery was indeed picture-perfect. The lake, mountains,16th-century Alpine houses and alleyways, ducks and geese - all of them helped to create the unbelievably spectacular sights. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Needless to say, many people were as impressed as us by this beautiful village and it has recently become one of the top tourist destinations in Austria. Sadly, this hasn’t turned out so well for the residents of Hallstatt. Prior to this trip, I had read about the negative impacts of mass tourism on their daily life. When we were there, the sign “Hallstatt is no museum” was flashing from numerous houses and garage doors. The frustration of the residents with the unbecoming behaviors of tourists was loud and clear. Hence, I was cautious of my behavior eg not to speak with loud voice and enter private premises. If you are going to visit Hallstatt, do be respectful towards those who live there. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ From Hallstatt, we took a 3.5-hour train ride to Vienna. I started realizing that this travel was coming to an end soon and that made me feel a little bit uneasy. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ #traveldiary#hallstatt #austria #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #spectacularsights #alpinehouse #beautifulvillage #berespectful #europetravel #dreamcomestrue

So yesterday I've been to the city center and found this place by chance. It's the Portuguese reading room, and I found it fantastic. Never been there before, I feel like a tourist in my own town 😉 . . . #library #library📚 #libraryporn #librarybook #librarydesign #classroomlibrary #books #bookstgram #oldbuildings #oldbuildingslover #oldbuildingspics #oldbuildingseverywhere #portuguese #architecture #architecture_view #architecture_lovers #architectureape #hiddengems #hiddengemsshowcase #recife #recifeantigo #divulgarecife #recifepe #traveling #traveling_world #travelingram #brazil #brazil_photolovers #seetheworldthroughmyeyes #seetheworld🌍
