Bia Hoi

iVietnam_081 (1)

Two of your finest ice cold Vietnamese Bia Hoi’s please Squire, I’ll take one glass half full and one half empty thanks. The latter, brewed with outrageously dangerous driving, distilled with hoteliers who have an apparent loathing for all tourists and kegged with the ‘liberation’ of our cash, is a hard one to swallow. Being negative is not my style, but some things bring a girl down and take their toll. I’ve necked this local brew enough, now I’d rather quaff something more palatable .. pass me that first glass Squire! It’s refreshingly friendly, with a devilish wit about it and has a depth of generosity to boot. I’ll have a refill please, and with it may I clink glasses and raise a toast to all who I know and love, near and far, past and present. To our newest friends may I say that cruising, boozing and curry choosing has never been more fun! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone! xxx

  3. Hey Pete and Mary,

    Looks as though the two of you are having the time of your life. Have a wonderful New Years celebration tonight.

    What are your plans for 2013? Carry on riding into the sunset?

    Big Love,

    Jools

    Hey Julio! Happy New year to you, Bryony, Kesia and Xylina! No specific plans other than making our way through SE Asia and into Australia. We’re thinking (and so are our dwindling bank accounts) that we might try and set-up base somewhere in NZ and try and earn a few bucks. Just enjoying taking it easy by the beach few a few days at the moment. Nice to be by the sea after being so far away from the coast for so long.

    Good to hear from ya!

    Sure are! Get your saddle ready… and I guess you’ll probably be needing the rest of your bike too.

    Awesome! Might get a touring bike to add to my collection. Can’t wait to see you both. Any ideas when you might be heading this way…just so I know when to quit my job!
