I'm in continuous amazement at the cordiality and humility of the Vietnamese people. During my travels through this magnificent country, iv received nothing but warm smiles, open-handed generosity, and countless "hello's". The children, radiant and brewing with excitement as they chase our motorbikes down the street waving and laughing. I have to admit, I was a bit disheartened to see the living conditions of these sweet kids; but their faces shone bright in spite of it all... An appearance which brings some amount of solace #vietnam

Over 3 weeks ago @ramaroundtheworld and I purchased a pair of old Chinese motorcycles set off on a journey through Vietnam. We started in the southern capital, Ho Chi Minh City. Our goal, to meet our cousins in the city of Hanoi, 2000 kilometers away. We snaked our way through breathtaking countryside, got bullied off the road by careless truck drivers, shared beers with amazing locals, stayed in a beachside paradise, broke down countless times, ate delicious food and forged new friendships. Against the odds, we did indeed make it to Hanoi and united with our brothers. From there, our pack grew by three and we continued riding through some of the most picturesque landscapes we have ever seen; all the way to the border of China. I think it's safe to say they we are all humbled by this experience and immensely grateful to have had the opportunity to share in such an incredible adventure with one another. Unfortunately today our pack had to divide itself. @brock_g and @prettyasscaleb making their way back to their island home. Ramez is chasing dreams in Cambodia as @mena_g and I continue to ride through the Northern Vietnamese country. Though this experience has been tedious at times it's also further strengthened our bonds with one another. I urge anyone who has made it all the way to the end of this caption; call someone you love, take them on an adventure, don't worry about the details; make some mistakes and you'll find that it was all worth it in the end. ๐Ÿ“ธ @mena_shootz

Words cannot describe its captivating beauty #vietnam

Vietnam sunsets and rock formations ๐ŸŒ… #vietnam #travelgram

What an unbelievable last few days it's been here in Vietnam. My cousin Ramez and I decided to pull the trigger on a once in a lifetime journey across the country. We purchased two old motorcycles that have been relentlessly bastardized with aftermarket parts. We gave them a fresh spray can paint job to make them our own, fashioned a luggage rack to hold our packs and hit the road. We were getting nothing but smiles as our little 125cc juggernauts traversed wet mountain passes and loose dirt roads. The journey has been an unforgettable one to say the least, and did I mention it's only day two! With 850 miles left to go; excitement for what's to come is an understatement. I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you all ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ #vietnam #travelgram #adv #overland

'Details create the big picture' #bluetemple

Wat Rong Khun has earned worldwide attention for its incredibly intricate detail but more so for its unapologetic design. It's arguably the most unconventional temple in the world today. Better known as The White Temple of Chiang Rai, it boasts more elements from 20th century pop culture that than it does traditional Buddhist. As you face the temple, you'll walk across a bridge aptly named "the cycle of rebirth". In front of the bridge are hundreds of outstretched hands that symbolize unrestrained desire. They're painfully realistic and are truly an eerie sight to behold. The bridge proclaims that the way to happiness is by forgoing temptation, greed, and desire. Next you arrive to the "gate of heaven" guarded by two creatures said to decide the fate of the dead. Finally you reach the principle building; it's breathtakingly white and adorned with mirrored glass, relentless in its detail. Though the exterior references traditional Thai elements, the interior takes an abruptly modern turn. Inside you'll find demonic murals entwined with western idols such as Micheal Jackson, Neo from the Matrix and T-800 from The Terminator. It depicts images of nuclear war, rampant industrialization and terrorist attacks that further hammer home the message and the destructive impact humans have had on the earth. Visiting the White Temple of Chiang Rai has been on my list of landmarks to visit for several years; I can say now that it was well worth the wait. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #whitetemple #chiangrai #amazingthailand

I woke up last Monday with the intention only to spend the day riding through the delightfully twisty mountain roads in the north of Chiang Mai. Toting only a phone charger and the clothes on my back, I set off. 4 blissful hours later I found myself in the city of Chiang Rai. Realizing it was a bit late to head back, I stayed the night. And another, and another... Chiang Rai is a city full of intrigue and has a mysterious flavor that kept me held tight in its arms. It's moments like these when I truly appreciate travel; sharing in an impromptu jam session with people from all over the world.
