    I've been looking to go to Vietnam ever since I saw that Top Gear special a few years back. Looks like you could make it a combined trip with train and ferry portions to mix it up a bit too.

    I just got a pair of Novarra Cragmont jeans on sale at REI. I do like the stretchy material, the fit, and the tappered legs. The reflective material though is mostly covered by the pocket flaps.
