on our way...

View Mike & Kim's Trip on msmitheman's travel map.

Finished work on Friday and we hit the road tomorrow night.

Kim's packed, I haven't yet! The apartment is all straight which is good.

Last night was the "going away party" at the Irish Bank in San Francisco. A lot of people turned up which was nice and much Guinness was consumed (mostly by us two I think).


We leave late tomorrow for the Philippines and have 2 nights booked in Manila. We're splashing out on our first couple of nights staying at the Cocacabana Hotel in Pasay.


We leave Manila on the 6th June to fly to Ho Chi Minh City. We've also booked the first couple of nights there as we arrive in the middle of the night and will be staying at Madam Cuc's guest house!! Realiably informed that this is a nice backpacker hotel in the city. We will see! This will be the last expensive hotel we stay in...$10 a night for the 2 of us, although I'm not too upset as its in the center of the city and does include the pick up from the airport, breakfast and dinner!

Getting ready to go!

View Mike & Kim's Trip on msmitheman's travel map.


Flights are booked for the 3rd June from San Francisco to Manila (via Hong Kong, but we're not stopping!).

We will be spending a couple of nights in the Philippines before traveling straight on to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The plan is to spend a month or so there seeing the country and hitting the beaches.

Plans are coming together here. Fingers crossed we have found someone to house sit the apartment which will be a huge help.

I'll continue to work with AIM throughout the end of the month, which will leave Kim running around trying to get things done before we leave.

The map below plots our route so I'll keep it updated as we go.
