My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

The Air Asia 3-hour flight journey was spent napping after we had the in-flight breakfast. We reached Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi around 10:00 local time, we were greeted by our tour guide, Mr. Dennis. It was a 30-minute drive from the airport to Parkson Hotel in Hanoi.

As it was still early to check in, we went to have a look at our rented motorbikes at the warehouse and rode the bikes back to town. We had lunch at Little India, an Indiàn Halal restaurant, a short walking distance from our hotel.
