So I thought I was going to move on from describing our Vietnam experiences, until I remembered an earlier promise. In the posting entitled, "Vietnam Blues, or Excitement..." I promised a story from our bus travel from Phu Quoc on to Con ... Read more >

Goodbye Vietnam.

Our last few days in Hanoi before departing Vietnam were enjoyable amazingly enough. I believe this is because we shopped! Knowing this was near the end of our trip and not having to lug around heavy bags for much longer, we stocked up on a few things.... Read more >

Funny I know to say, only a month more to go. May sound a lot for some, but to us it means the trip is winding down. Amazing to think! Everything has been go-go-go, the time has flown and I feel not enough time for reflection along the way. I think I ... Read more >

We crossed into Vietnam yesterday. A much anticipated border crossing that was amazingly seemless. We crossed at Ha Tien, a VERY new border crossing point. We only saw one other couple of travelers there. THey actually were the only other people we saw ... Read more >
