So today the same stuff as yesterday, flat, boring roads. At the beginning it was foggy.
They kind of look funny with this tiny head for these big arms.
The rain got exchanged with wind facing the opposite direction of my driving. At the end there was a really, really small hill of 50 meters of climbing, I enjoyed that one😂
To the left of the picture there was a car and from the right of the picture there was a car, so don’t think that the roads are empty here, they are getting more crowded as I get closer to Hà Nội.
For the rest it was mentally really hard to continue… But I managed to arrive in Ninh Bình, as it weren’t my muscles who didn’t want anymore but my mind. Putting on the right music and skipping the bad one helped.
Actually I often saw the rails from the train, but rarely the train or it was behind buildings. As the road and the rails were running in parallel with nothing in between, I got myself a challenge: taking a picture of the train here, as I like trains and I know some people back at home who like trains😀 The first train was going into the same direction, so the moment until I had my camera out, I could just get the back of the train…
Shortly before Ninh Bình I got to a closed rail crossing, so I stopped and placed myself with the camera to catch the train. It was a little bit quick…
Arrived in Ninh Bình I checked online for a good hostel, as I didn’t have any clue what to visit here and with a good hostel, you get english speaking stuff. I found a good one, ironically it is the old train station😂
After a shower I talked to my roommate and I ended up going to dinner with some more people and now we are hanging around.
Yes I managed to take more pictures today😀 Probably because it didn’t rain anymore.
With my roommate I will visit some places on a motorbike we will rent.
The day after tomorrow I will do my final cycling to Hà Nội where I am going to meet my brother and his girlfriend.
