Welcome to the Land Roamer's blog!

I created this blog to keep my family and friends informed about the Land Roamer’s 
preparation, planning for the trip and later to keep in touch during my overland adventures.

Having had both a Land Rover and a Land Cruiser, I decided that I would call my 
4x4 camper-truck, a Brimont Brutt (more info here) "Land Roamer".

To roam: "To travel purposefully unhindered through a wide area. It suggests wandering freely
 and often far afield."  Etymology: Middle English, 14th century, Merriam-Webster.  

"Live for the JOURNEY, not the Destination!"

Vietnam

=> This post is a chronological summary of my trip.

More pictures can be accessed at the end/bottom
 of this blog, they are organized by topics.


As I could not enter Vietnam with my Roamer, from Peninsular Malaysia, 
I had shipped it to Kota Kinabalu, in Sabah State on the island of Borneo.  

After visiting parts of Sabah, I left my Roamer in Kota Kinabalu
 and flew to Hanoi in Vietnam.


Rented a motorcyle (Honda Winner 150cc) 
for the next 4 weeks and 4000 kilometers!




The Temple of Culture hosts the Imperial Academy, Vietnam's first national university. The temple was built in 1070 at the time of Emperor Lý Thánh Tông. It is one of several temples in Vietnam which is dedicated to Confucius, sages and scholars.
