I’ve been looking at a budget and timeframes for the trip – so far I’ve worked out the route I’ll probably take from Belfast, Northern Ireland to Hanoi, Vietnam. The costs are transport only – I’m yet to add in accommodation, although a lot of the transport is overnight trains so will be some of the accommodation too.
Most cities I’ve put that I’ll stop 2 days, but this could change of course – could add more places, remove places, change the length of time, who knows?! My number 1 rule of travelling – be flexible! It adds to the fun and excitement. You could get somewhere and find you don’t like it, so just get on the next bus out of there or the other way around! On previous trips, there are places I’ve ended up staying over week when I planned only 1 night as I enjoyed it so much.
The way it’s looking at the moment, it will be a minimum of 36 days from Belfast to Hanoi – longer if there are more places I decide to stop, or for longer. Both are highly likely!
