The Road Less Travelled: Vietnam

summer drew to a close, I felt the urge to escape from the
hustle and bustle and familiar faces and places that surrounded

Throughout August
I travelled across Vietnam,
tracing its coast from south to north, starting in Ho Chi Minh City
and ending in the capital, Hanoi. I journeyed through places packed
with tourists, and to villages of which few people in the west have
ever heard (and in which few words of English were spoken).

Stepping – or riding – out of my comfort zone, I hired a
motorbike. With these two wheels I was able to venture off the
routes well trodden and capture a side of the country that isn’t
splashed across the internet. Vietnam helped me grow as a person,
and this is reflected in this album. | @monteirotomas
