The city of Hanoi is dirty, full of smog; and, honestly, very boring. Most tourists wandering around the city will, at some point, end up taking pictures of the meandering tracks, one of the few picture-worthy places.
Our first day of exploring Phú Quốc island. It can be hard to find a nice part of the beach that isn’t taken over by resorts and masses of tourists but we came at a quiet time and found this idyllic swing.
The Elephant Falls near Dalat can be seen from the top, but to really get a great view, you have to take a muddy, dangerous hike down the mountain.
Nha Trang’s beach-side resort area shows a big welcome sign.
Hoa Lư, a small place near Ninh Bình city, is the ancient capital of Vietnam. We walked around the free part and took a break at the burning rice fields next to the temple.
A mill on the island Froskepôle in Leeuwarden.
The Acropolis of Athens, built on the city’s highest point, is visible from many viewpoints around the city. You can choose to pay € 20 to see the old ruins up close, but we decided to explore the viewpoints instead.

Overlooking the Chocolate Hills in Bohol, the Philippines.
The Chocolate Hills are a range of small humps in the landscape. In this time of year, it looks nice but in the dry season they should turn brown, making it look like a land full of giant bonbons (hence the name). We saw them from a viewpoint in the town of Carmen (Bohol island).
We took a ferry from Manila to Cebu as it was cheaper than a plane and it seemed to be more comfortable. The boat ride took over 27 hours after a 5-hour wait in the terminal.

We had to endure a lot of rain during the wet season. It starts pouring down very sudden, turning streets into rivers.
