Vietnam adventures!

May 14, 2018

 

I was very lucky during my time in Vietnam as I was visited for 2 weeks both by my husband and my good friend Eva. During our adventures together we got to see some different parts of Vietnam. It was a very interesting, hot and exciting adventure. Initially it was a bit of a shock going to Vietnam after Sri Lanka, people are friendly and helpful but much more reserved in general than I was used to. When traveling alone the little conversations you have with the people you meet make a big difference. In some ways however, the country was comparable to Sri Lanka, for example, the landscape full of coconut trees and luscious greenery oh and the crazy traffic!!

 

Here are a few photos of the adventures that we had in Vietnam :) 

 

 

Drying rice paper in the sun - this will be used to make spring rolls eventually. 

 Walking the 'Fairy Stream'.

 

 I managed to get up for sunrise! It was beautiful! 

 

 Vietnam is the country of motorbikes and scooters! 

 In Vietnam they have the most delicious drip coffee - it is served with condensed milk!
