Our first day on the bikes we got off the train at 05.30 !! And had the traditional pho ga breakfast Chicken and noodle soup.




So we got our gear on filled our water packs up and set off in the light but warm drizzle.


Via a beautiful private temple

and the Vinh Linh caves. This was a farming village which was carpet bombed by the yanks to prevent them from growing supplies for the vietcom so they dug a whole system of caves to live in !
