photo diary vietnam, part I

A photo/travel/portrait/documentary-diary from my trip to Vietnam, summer 2013. The trip lasted a little more than five weeks in total - three weeks with a friend and two weeks alone. I travelled through the country from south to north by train, wearing trainers and tugging along a relatively small backpack including my camera. Here is the result.

Ten hours spent in Dubai Airport - sleeping on the floor wrapped in a blanket and trying to look after your backpack even while sleeping. Awaken by the morning choir at 4 o'clock in the morning
