    Hi! I'm a 24 y.o. Aus female flying into Hanoi on 27 feb and keen to catch up with anyone too! I'm travelling alone for a few weeks and would love the opportunity to make some new friends. I'd love to visit Sapa and Ha Long bay while I'm up north... tossing up on doing my own thing rather than an organised tour but would prefer travel companion/s to do this rather than alone. Also keen for some motorcycling as I ride here in Aus too...

    Hey Roisin,
    I think by the 16th/17th I'll be too far south to meet up, but if you do head to Nha trang soon after let me know i would love to meet up for some cycling. Otherwise I may be back up near Hanoi near the beginning of April maybe we could meet up then. Safe travels! Hope to be in touch
