A day of travelling will bring a basketful of learning... ~ Vietnamese Proverb

Xin chao people!

I’m about to start posting the blogs from our Vietnam trip. We travelled from north to south Vietnam roughly following the coastline - experiencing vastly different cuisine, cultures and climates along the way.

As much as I would have liked to, I did not blog in real time because sitting in a closet of an internet café or fighting for free internet time at hotels were not very attractive options...we preferred to be out there amongst it - people watching, eating and drinking! Some of our trip took us to remote places so we were offline anyway.

As this is an open blog, for privacy reasons I’m only posting a few ‘place’ photos here, the ‘people’ photos are on our closed profile facebook pages. If you are not on facebook and would like to have a squiz at our photos, please email us... 😊
