“You get the unadulterated glory of one of the world's great destinations, Vietnam in all its wild beauty; you get some of the best food on the planet; you get the thrill of the open road, and the joy of absolute freedom; and you get the experience of seeing a country in the same way pretty much all of its residents do,” says the travel writer.
