Another day and a half in Hoi An

In this post: our lovely hotel, the best little cafe that made a GF cake just for Rach, a visit to Thanh Ha pottery village, people watching in Old Town, a new hotel, and a quick motobike ride out to An Bang Beach. 

Sapa – Day 2

In this post – hiking with the Black Hmong through the hills of Sapa (under a blazing hot sun in the harshest possible conditions to take photographs…)

Bai Tu Long Bay

In this post: Bai Tu Long Bay aboard the Dragon Legend, filled with kayaking, an amazing paddleboat tour through a floating fishing village, a BBQ on a private beach, way too much food, and so many wonderful new friends.

Hanoi Day 2

In this post: Underneath Zenith Yoga & Cafe II, the Temple of Literature, Long Bien Bridge, and a quick run to the market for some dinner supplies.  (PS – We’re off for Bai Tu Ling Bay in the morning and will be without wifi until Wednesday evening, so no posts until then.)

Hanoi Day 1

In this post: Hanoi’s Old Quarter, tea at Hanoi Social Club, Hoan Kiem, the man who drew us (more on that soon), dinner at the Lantern Lounge, and a stroll through the night market.


Hey everyone! Just a quick note to let you know we’re safe and sound in Hanoi. Our travel from WI was uneventful which is always a good thing, and we’re excited to get out and explore later today. It’s currently 4:45am and we’re both wide awake, so we might head out for a quick morning stroll to Hoàn Kiếm Lake, perhaps find a cafe…
