So it turns out that overnight train rides in Vietnam are not quite as comfy as the ones in Thailand, but still quite fun. Just bumpy.
We arrived in Sapa very early this morning. From what I have seen so far its incredibly beautiful. The weather so far today has been lovely, hoping it will stay like this for the next few days. Planning to do a light bit of hiking tomorrow (still no proper hiking boots). Not been able to check into our hotel yet as it is still to early. I want to lay down.
