finally leaving Cat Ba

deep water soloing
Rock climbing without ropes above the ocean. There is only one way down!

After 10 days of semi living on Cat Ba we got the courage to leave. We made some amazing friends and will keep in contact with people from around the world.

Before we left Cat Ba, we went on a 6 hour hike around one of our rock climbing spots called Butterfly Valley, or to us locals, Lin Minh. Here is a picture out hiking with Dermot and John from County Mayo, Ireland. They were pretty cool...for a couple of Mayo guys.

Now we are in Sa Pa, (sometimes called Sapa) Vietnam. It was another 4 hour trip (bus to boat to bus to bus) back to Hanoi, then an overnight 8 hour train, followed by an hour uphill on a mini bus to Sa Pa.
