    Typhoon and storm season

    Vietnam due to its' location faces tropical storms and typhoons every year. For us, it's a completely new experience so we didn't know what to expect. For some time now temperatures were much lower and it rained a bit nearly every day. It was like a prelude to what was coming. The first time we saw tropical storm warning in…

    Staying put until further notice

    While the whole world was still struggling with Covid-19 here in Da Nang we felt relatively safe. There was no new case registered in Vietnam for 100 days and everything went back to normal. Streets were full of people and food stalls. Every weekend we've seen full busses of local tourists dropped to hotels around our building. Life went on…

    Golden Bridge Da Nang

    Ever since we saw pictures of a bridge set on huge hands we wanted to see it. The bridge is a part of a huge complex on top of the mountains. To get there you take a long 20 minutes cable car trip over the forest and mountains. It holds the world record for the longest non-stop single-track cable car…

    Post Apo World

    I love post-apo games, even some movies are ok, but I have never thought I will live in one! That's how it currently feels in the world with Covid-19 panic. Nearly empty street, most businesses closed, no street food, not many people on the streets but those who are there all wear masks!!!

    Smart home, panoramic view Da Nang

    When we arrived in Vietnam we knew we want to see Da Nang. We've found a cool place on Airbnb titled "Smart Home, Panorama View" and we didn't think much and booked it for the next 2 weeks. The description sounded interesting and obviously geeks as us we just wanted to see what it actually mean to have a "smart…

    Saigon – 3 Oaks Hotel

    Going back to Vietnam we knew right away we will want to stay a bit longer this time so we chose Ho Chi Minh City because it's easy to find an agency there to extend our visa. We decided to stay there for a week and move on to another city after our visas are done. We didn't do any…
