A new and exciting segment of our journey starts today. We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam a few days ago and after stalking craigslist like crazy people, we are now the proud owners of two new motorbikes. For the next five and a half weeks, we will be exploring the country of Vietnam from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi on our new bikes. Some nights we may even end up camping in the wilderness. We’ll be keeping you all updated every step of the way here, on Instagram and most entertainingly, on Snapchat. You can follow us their at MeanderingMassholes and Ldriggs7. Add us!
We can’t believe that this day is finally here! Josh has been dreaming of this part of our trip since we first decided we wanted to travel and he’s been dying to get here since we stepped foot in Asia. We’re excited to start exploring the lesser known areas of Vietnam and have the freedom to go wherever we’d like. Believe it or not, buying bikes in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam is a pretty common occurrence with travelers and it has become an unspoken right of passage when backpacking this area.
And without further adieu….
Meet Our New Whips
Josh scored an oldie but goodie manual Honda Win and I ended up with a little bit newer semi-automatic Honda Wave that even came with a free tent! We’ll go into more depth about buying the bikes, but the process was simple. We just handed over some money and were given the keys and the ‘blue card’. Easy as that!
The next five weeks will be amazing and we are excited to share the journey with everyone. Keep an eye out for new posts, stories, pictures and updates on our social media pages.
Until Next Time,
