Bike Ride Day 22 – Hoi An to Kon Tum

Today’s drive seemed and was very long and tiring! We were planning on getting to Pleiku but didn’t make it in the end as it was getting dark and the roads weren’t so good.

We started off well from Hoi An, but then managed to take a wrong turning which us brought us behind time. Along the way were passed tall, traditional looking houses. We also saw some lovely scenery and views from the mountains while driving the bike along winding roads.

We stopped off and had a drink with a Vietnamese family. Only one spoke English so we had a conversation with him while a lot of translation was going on at the same time!

We stayed over in Kon Tum- a little town. We didn’t see much but we arrived late and left very early- around 6 am ( the earliest yet!) so as to get a good start on our 400 km target. We were bracing ourselves for a very long journey ahead of us!
