Day Trip to the Mekong Delta

VIETNAM | Sunday, 14 Apr 2013 | Views [408]

What a great day! And there was no 'Douchebag' bus or guide this time!! Our guide was sensational! On the morning bus ride he whipped out his guitar and sang for us! And he was good! He also had a great, witty sense of humor and was always throwing ... Read more >

Ho Chi Minh City

VIETNAM | Saturday, 13 Apr 2013 | Views [235]

Our time in Ho Chi Minh was pleasant and relaxing. Maybe a bit too relaxing, as we started to get a bit lazy about planning trips, lounging in the pool! We are starting to miss the comforts of home so our base in HCMC was becoming a little too comfortable ... Read more >

Halong Bay

I am backtracking a bit with this post. I meant to write this about a week ago but never got to it. Now I hope I don’t miss some ‘fun facts’ of the trip! I always mean to write as I go but sometimes it is just impossible! Ok so here ... Read more >

'Jungle Beach'

VIETNAM | Friday, 5 Apr 2013 | Views [1294]

Our few days at Jungle Beach were fantastic! We found such a gem ! We wanted to stay for a few weeks, not days! With frequent stops, it took us about 2 hours to get to the place from Nha Trang. But it was a pleasant drive—through small villages, ... Read more >

Nha Trang

VIETNAM | Tuesday, 2 Apr 2013 | Views [584]

Our first adventure in Vietnam began when we almost missed our train in the morning. We thought the train was leaving at 650AM, so we thought arriving around 630 would be a good idea. When we arrived we walked up to the ticket counter and asked for a ... Read more >

Vietnam ...

VIETNAM | Monday, 1 Apr 2013 | Views [269]

Love at first sight. After over a month in India, we were ecstatic to be going to Vietnam. We assumed we would like the place more than the chaos of India. We were right! We are both lovers of Vietnamese food (there is nothing like it) and I feel safer ... Read more >
