Although we’ve both visited Vietnam, we’ve never been there together.Katie has visited twice – once in 2000, when backpacking around SE Asia with a friend, and once again in 2004, when she spent 8 months travelling around Asia, from Japan to India, and crossed from China to Vietnam, and then on to Cambodia. Geoff visited Vietnam in early 2005 during a Chinese New Year vacation from his job in Taiwan. While we didn’t write about our experiences back then – all of our travels in Vietnam were pre-Wandertooth, we both have a big appreciation for the country, and would love to go back and visit one day!
