Just after Vroom with a View was published I decided to rock up to Ho Chi Minh City and see if it was possible to find an old Vespa and rattle around the countryside in Vietnam too.
As it turns out, it was – with a little bit of help from an American expat called Steve and a bronze-coloured Vespa, manufactured circa 1964.
The story of my Vietnamese adventures first appeared in a travel anthology called Come Away with Me. Then it was available for a time as part of the Amazon Shorts initiative.
Now, you can click on the link below and read it for free – a search for la dolce vita with a distinctly South East Asian flavour!
