Cute Red Café ☕️

Found this cute café in Hanoi old quarter, spent a few hours inside.

As you see, there are many such cafés in Hanoi, facing the streets with a row of chairs, Vietnamese love coffee and they have good coffee too, often you see people with a cup of coffee sitting in front of the street, watching people and cars passing by.

I sometimes wonder, isn’t it a bit too loud? When in Europe I always prefer quieter cafés, in Hanoi there are some quieter neighbourhoods, with International restaurants, such as the area near west lake. But I just like those noisy cafés in the old quarter, maybe because Vietnam is still new to me, or because it’s just different than other countries I’ve been, making it special to me.

Decor looks so French

Had some coffee and cake, not bad.

Do you also like coffee?

Have a good day ahead.




CBD oil

Cannabidiol (CBD) becomes more and more popular this year in Belgium.

Cannabis can easily find in Belgium, it’s sort of decriminalized here anyway.

Today let’s talk about CBD, it’s derived from the cannabis plant but won’t make you high like THC, another active ingredient from cannabinoids.

CBD is totally legal of course and healthy, it makes you relaxed, you can find it in the shops, online, everywhere.

You find all kinds of CBD oil, with different flavors and percentages.

Just tried it by putting a drop beneath the tongue.

Now I feel relaxed, not high, or maybe a little bit.

Have you tried it?





Any travel tips for Vietnam are welcome.

Leaving for Indochina in a week, still haven’t had much plan yet, try to travel slowly and easily this time, probably will be travelling in Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Seoul, Taiwan, etc.

Trip starts in Vietnam, so let’s start with Vietnam.

I will be in Vietnam for about 3 weeks, starting from Hanoi, exiting from Saigon, then heading to other Asian countries. Only accommodation for the first 3 days in Hanoi is planned so far.

I think I’m going to do a motorbike loop in Ha Giang area for a couple of days, the area borders China. I went to Guangxi province of China a few years ago and had a great time there, I reckon probably the landscape would be pretty similar.

After that, I’m probably going to a beach or somewhere to chill, any quieter beaches recommended?

I know Vietnam is rather developed in tourism, so probably getting around and finding accommodations won’t be a problem.

I was reading some travel blogs, people seem to like Hue, Da Lat and some other places. I saw some pictures of Vietnamese cities, I must say some cities look pretty similar to Chinese cities, of course they have more churches due to previous French colony, but where I live at the moment we have too many churches, so I don’t think I’m going to do too much such sightseeing mainly just to relax.

What I really want to do in Vietnam is:

  • I see there are many cafés and they have their own traditional coffee, I love coffee, I’ll visit a lot of cafés there.
  • I love Vietnamese food, not the those French baguette sandwiches of course, I’ve been eating too much bread nowadays. I like their noodles and satays, but I’m a noob, never been to Vietnam, so have to discover more varieties of food there. (Feel free to share any Vietnamese food that I have to try)
  • Last year I’ve been to some beaches, mostly for the tasty seafood, I see they have some really lovely islands and beaches, although I don’t think I will go specially down south for islands like Phu Quoc, so if you know any nice beaches along the coast, feel free to comment ^^ Thanks in advance.
  • I see in the south of the country, Mekong delta I mean, there are similar water markets as those in Thailand, so if I’m not too lazy, I’ll try to check it out.
  • Vietnamese traditional dress Ao Dai looks quite nice, maybe I should get one and wear it. Hopefully can find them easily for reasonable prices!
  • Because my flight is to and from Hanoi, I will stay quite a few days there, so if you have anything to mention, any tips for the city and any nice district worth taking a walk, feel free to share with me ^^

I’m looking forward to travel to Vietnam, even though it’s bear market, I’ll have to watch out my budget while travelling but still I’m excited to be on the way again!

And if you are in Vietnam lately, feel free to reach me out, maybe we could have a small Steem meetup or something, but of course I don’t have itinerary yet and don’t want to plan much in advance.

Need to pack for the trip now, talk later.

目前我特别想去的地方有北部跟中国交界处的Ha Giang山区租摩托车骑一圈,大概需要4-5天。然后去找个比较安静的海滩休息几天,胡志明市南部的湄公三角洲好像有一些有意思的跟泰国差不多的水上市场。
