Big apologies but it's our last day in Hanoi, taxi pick up at 6 pm. Few places to see and watching the Old Quarter go by before we head and a last dunk in the pool! Had a superb meal last night with super company overlooking the lake in the Old Quarter and soaking up the celebrations of Reunification Day! Ciao for now followers, it's been sweet & memorable xx... read more

Asia » Vietnam » South Central Coast » Da Nang April 23rd 2016

So yesterday we flew from Phu Quoc, via HCM and onto Da Nang. Took a taxi from Da Nang to our hotel in Hoi An (some 30 mins taxi ride). First thing we have noticed is the significant change in weather! So much cooler! We had dinner locally last night, £5.30 each, for starters, main & drinks! We then took a taxi into Ancient Hoi An for the evening, lots of life, entertainment and activity by the river. We sat for a while, sipping a cool Tiger beer and proceeded to a small gallery where Michael took a liking to a piece of art for home - have to say pleasantly surprised at his taste (maybe his taste in style has matured since his 54th birthday)!?!?! 😜 Today, we have dropped off some laundry, chilled by ... read more

Phu Quoc has been one big chill! Breakfast, beach, massages, lunch, beach, sunset, dinner, bed! Michael found a crab whilst snorkelling, and lost his claddagh ring also! Last night we had fresh fish and freshly made ice-cream @ Night Market was superb! Stopped off for a cocktail at the Rabbit Hole on our way back to the bungalow Bodies refreshed & onto our next venture tomorrow - off to Hoi An!... read more

So birthday boy is 54 today and we are at HCM airport about to board for Phu Quoc - beach bday bungalow awaits! We have had a wonderful couple of days in Saigon - feel blessed to have experienced such simplicity amongst craziness! Cyclotour was a great way to explore the City! From perfumed flower market to fresh stripped sugar cane on the sides of the roads. We lit a candle and said a prayer at Notre Dame Cathedral for our beautiful niece, Clementine and thanked God for her safe and happy arrival on 16th April at 12.19 pm (6.19 pm V time)! Had a wonderful full body massage for £3 and snored my head off! Being called to board shortly, so sending our love & blessings to all from Vietnam, until our next blog..... xx ... read more
