greentravel Text: Bao Khuyen - Photos: Nguyen Xuan Vinh In addition to a deep passion for photography, Nguyen Xuan Vinh has always been into traveling. Vietnam offers some of the most incredible routes that Vinh is proud to have discovered, explored, and captured in his amazing photographs the beauty of each destination. Let us take on this journey with him and admire the most breathtaking sceneries of Vietnam. Vinh is a member of a group named "ßπp ChÙp" (cycle and shoot), where their love for cycling and taking photos are combined. The group was founded Christmas 2013, and Vinh joined the team in July 2014, together with his team mates promoting green travel and raising awareness for environmental protection. A mobile home ßπp ChÙp is a group that is open to anyone who would like to join. All you need is a bike. Bicycles can be divided into many different types, but there are 4 main types in the group: race bikes, mountain bikes, city bikes, and the most important of all, touring bikes. If you want to travel by bike over long distances from city to city, it is essential to get a bike that gives you a smooth ride, and it does not necessarily have to be an expensive one. A solid touring bike can cost several tens of millions of dong or several hundred of millions dong. The key is to pick one that you feel considerably comfortable with. Besides the bike, you also have to carry along heavy loads, including cooking ware, food, bike repair kits, back up tubes, first aid kits, tents, and camping gear, not to mention cameras and flycam euipment. It can be a pain to prepare so many things, but planning wisely ensures your trips are the most enjoyable ones. 112 TRAVELLIVE
