My second last morning on the island started as the previous one – slowly. Unfortunately my plan to attempt another dive day did fail, as the dive centre decided to head back to Turtle Island. So there was no rush in the morning.
After covering diving and relaxing on the beach I decided to do something else I have not done during my first trip to Phu Quoc – exploring the island by motorbike.
One item that was high on my agenda for the visit Phu Quoc was a dive trip. I haven’t dived since my visit to Egypt one year ago, and I realised I really missed it. So this was one of the reason I booked the trip to Phu Quoc (obviously it had nothing to do with the beaches and getting out of the city!!!).
This is my first Christmas in Saigon since moving here earlier in 2018. Coming from a city where you can find Christmas Markets around every corner to enjoy mulled wine and eat some lovely treats it was interesting to see how Christmas will be in my new home.

One advantage of living in Saigon is the proximity of some great places to visit – even if it is just a long (or in this case a very long) weekend. So I took the chance and decided to visit Phu Quoc island to relax for a few days.
The second day of my stay in Cairo was something special – time to explore the pyramids of Giza and Saqqara. Seeing this Ancient Wonder of the World. Saying that I was excited would have been the understatement of the year.
After the rather comfortable and shortish (6 1/2 hours) bus journey I was finally in Cairo. A place that was high on my bucket list. I was happy that I made it.
