It was a race track. A downhill slide / a breath of fresh air / a whirlwind of ever-changing view points. It was bliss.
In my mind I was driving down: my hair free flowing, my arms thrown high, my hands embracing. Oh the wonder that Vietnam shares with me daily.
Here we go. Just as the sloping maze appeared below. Its funny how things align.
My lungs full and my voice loud / my heart glowing and my eyes radiant. My skin goosebumps though the sun burns down on me. This is living.
This is why you should motorbike.
This is Vietnam.
My love affair continues. And just like that, my song of the moment comes on, the warmth of the sun consumes me.
Speed:twists / breeze:sun / blue:green / happiness:love. Freedom. And the emotion I crave most in life: JOY.
Motorbiking from Dalat to Nha Trang
I only stopped once on the drive from Dalat to Nha Trang for photos, though I could have stopped a hundred times. I took 1 video and a handful of shots which you see here. A friend commented on my instagram post, suggesting that I write down how the drive made me feel – she had done it previously and could relate to the sheer joy of the drive and said this helped her to relive the experience over and over. So, in a quiet moment at the beach in Nha Trang I scribbled down my feelings and this is what I came up with.
I truly hope you can experience this drive for yourself as it was mesmerising. In the meantime I urge you to put on the songs I drove to and enjoy these few snapshots.
I think doing this mountain pass from Dalat to Nha Trang (rather than the reverse) is more impressive as you get the views down over the valley.
