Up a early once again! This time I was feeling 100% better!! In a minibus out to the My Son temples with our cute little tour guide Van who was constantly smiling! I don't know how he did it- wearing a suit on a 35 degree day! Because we were visiting a sacred area, all women had to cover shoulders and knees to be respectful.. This is very hard to do considering it was boiling hot in the direct sun.

Today in Nha Trang, everyone got up early and went for breakfast while I died in my room. Emma was a fantastic room mate, she applied moisteriser on my back while I groaned in pain. I felt so nauseous too. We hopped into our bus which took us to the airport to catch our flight to Da Nang. I wasn't well at all so I slept the majority of the way.

Another early start and a hectic schedule. Ate breakfast at the hotel then changed into bathers. Piled into a mini bus which took is to the docks to board our boat…. SNORKELING!! This rickety old fishing boat awaited. On board, we wore life jackets until we were out of the main bay. Our boat tour leader was Bin, he loved to crack a joke or two. With music on the boat at a reasonably loud volume and ice cold beer in our hands, we were off cruising.

After returning to the hotel last night and eventually falling to sleep well after 1am, Emma and I were awake at 5am to the tooting of scooters and general road noise from the streets. Went for our breakfast in the hotel, heaps of fruits and traditional Vietnamese foods available. Sat with a few of the other contiki travellers and discussed alcohol and drugs in each of our countries!! Packed our bags and checked out… Ready for our adventure through the city.

After sleeping 10 hours in a king sized bed, I woke up refreshed and ready to face the hustle and bustle of KL. I had breakfast at the hotel (free food so why not!) and I tried to keep it authentic.. Instead of going for the typical baked beans or eggs on toast, I opted for Malaysian pastries with coconut jam. Pretty decent. I didn't get a chance to have a proper walk around the city last night as my feet were killing me so now was the perfect chance to.
