Da Nang Day 1

semi-overcast

My flight from Hanoi to Da Nang was about an hour. Yea, I know, I'm not brave enough to take the bus/train yet. So for this vacation, I flew from city to city. .. I'll do better on my next vacation.

I had the hotel send me a taxi (still not used to traveling alone) and waited for it arrive. I should be used to it by now, but the shouting and aggressive way taxi drivers try to get you is still new to me. I'm glad I don't have to worry about that in Korea.

Checked in and decided to walk along the beach and just chill out. It was a nice day despite being a little overcast.

Hanoi was busy and kept me moving. Da Nang was where I took it easy and just sat at the beach and tried to see what the giant white statue was at the other end.

Managed to find a tour company somewhere amidst my long walk. I booked a tour for Hoi An for the next day. I eventually made it back to the street my hotel was in. Next door was a bar called The BillaBong Pub & Restaurant. I ordered the Aussie Pie. I figured since this was an Aussie pub/restaurant, their pies should be good right? It was delicious. Minced beef, mushy peas, tomato sauce and chips, you can't go wrong with that. Spent the rest of my time writing postcards while enjoying my pie and beer.
