Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Vietnamese peasants

Vietnamese workers along the Perfume River

Vietnam is a very interesting country and one of contrasts. In the past couple of decades it it has opened up considerably with the younger generations embracing the west, but it is still a very traditional society. Traveling through Vietnam this is in evidence everywhere as you will see modern buildings and a town and then a few miles later you will see workers with their conical hats tending to their rice fields. This picture was taken along the Perfume River outside of Hué while touring the tombs of the Nguyen Dynasty.


The goal of Traveling Ted is to inspire people to outdoor adventure travel and then provide tips on where and how to go.
