Earlier this year, when I was travelling to Da Lat, Vietnam, I got a travel mate. A guy from the US who was posted an open message in Couchsurfing, said he’ll be heading to Da Lat and will be staying there for exactly the same period with what I was planned, with a blank agenda and up to anything that might interesting, pretty much matched my mood at that time. He was tired of doing touristy thingy (too).
So we decided to meet and form something that we can call a plan. I arrived couple hours earlier than him. He wasn’t there until midday, and I was (this is serious) not in the mood of exploring the town (as a tourist), and the (supposed to be sleepy and laid back) town itself was crowded and packed with people because it was Lunar New Year, and it seemed like everyone in Vietnam was in Da Lat. So I waited him in a quite lovely coffee shop called Urban Coffee, and got some works done. Yea, you read it right. Works. (more…)
