I’m going to Vietnam with Mum, and possibly Cambodia with Mum and Dad. I’m a bit freaked out about doing a tour, as I’m not really a people person (unless I get to choose the people), and I’m not into pre-packaged experiences, but Intrepid are meant to be good and it’ll be much easier for Mum.
I think for vietnam it could be good…it was pretty tough for white fair heads when I was there…a fall out from the past, bus drivers refusing to let you on etc etc. cambodia much easier for solo travel.
Really? Even if I have venerable old lady with me?
(Just as well Mum doesn’t read my blog!)
I was thinking it would be a good excuse to try brunette hair, but Foo scoffed. I really just need an excuse and it’s as good as any.
vietnam may have softened since I was there but I have never been to a country that made me lose it so many times. literally empty buses that couldn’t fit any westerners on. There was separate transport for whiteys for this reason.
Also being told to get out of shops bc we weren’t welcome etc etc. was v. hard.
Maybe with your mum it will change things but I’m not sure..you’ll have to see. maybe die your hair black, get dark contact lenses and wear a paddy field hat.
Stupid white cows! oops, tourette’s again.
How long since you were there, Mez?
E – bitch!
