Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Beautiful Faces Nha Trang Vietnam & French baguettes are two things I recall when I think about Vietnam.  Other vivid memories are of the motorbikes in Ho Chi Minh City, & the Cu Chi tunnels, however the image that sticks in my mind most of all are the beautiful faces of the people and their children in this amazing country. I think I need to plan a 3rd trip there again soon.

Nha Trang Vietnam, good beach, nice town.

All the fishing boats are painted blue, they really look terrific, then again I really like boats. I even found some boat yards where they were repairing and refurbishing some older boats. Constructed from solid timber and designed to handle the rough seas in the monsoon season.

In for repairs

A little panel beating could be required here. 🙂

I really love these fishing boats

I found these beautiful kids living in an old tin shed in a shanty town beside the river. If I ever make it back to Nha Trang I will try and find their home to give them a copy of this photo.

The house at the bottom right is where the children live, you can clearly see the window where they were.

John Martin aka Pothole Bin Ladin accompanied me on one of my 2003 trips to Vietnam. Nha Trang has a beautiful long sandy beach. Find yourself a deck chair in front of the yacht club and be prepared to be bombarded by vendors who don’t like to take no for an answer. 😥

A fantastic long sandy beach at Nha Trang.

Sign on beach says “no vendors”

This sign on beach says “no vendors” so every time one would approach I would just point to the sign. Then one guy strolled up, I pointed, and he said quick as a flash, “I can’t read.”  😆

Sidewalk chef, and the food was great.

Always avoid a lady with an axe. 🙂

At Jack’s bar with Jack

Beautiful Faces Nha Trang Vietnam I met Jack an Australian from the NSW coast , around Coffs Harbour I think, here we are drinking at Jacks Bar in Nha Trang. I went to Saigon in January 2015  to taste the French baguettes and to gaze at the thousands of beautiful faces.  

Thanks for visiting my Beautiful faces Nha Trang photo blog.

A lasting memory of Nha Trang.

 

I was here in 2003 and its strange what sticks in your mind. I heard Norah Jones for the first time on the radio and bought the CD the next day, have been a fan ever since, Here is the song,

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. 🙂 Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
