That's right, over the Summer we jetted off to Vietnam for a few days, and it was GOOD!


Grab a tea a biscuit, it is going to be a picture heavy post.

We jetted off for a long weekend in the sun, to meet a couple of friends from Portugal who were travelling around Vietnam.


It always pains me to leave the kids behind (this was my second time leaving the kids for a few days).


So we flew out mid afternoon and totally arrived on time for a quick drink and dinner, which is just what we needed. It was a short and sweet flight from Macau to Da Nang. Had a small drive to Hoi An and we were settled in our hotel.


After a bit of relaxing and a bubble bath, we jumped in a cab and headed towards the old part of town. Let me tell 'ya I was pleasantly surprised! Having travelled all aroun Southeast Asia, Hoi An is a town I am definitely going back to!


It is so clean and organized. You don't feel cheated by local taxis or anyone else for that matter, it just makes for a really pleasant holiday. Totally recommend it!

Believe it or not, we ended up in a little Italian place and not only was it absolutely amazing, we went back a couple of days later. It was that good!

After the surprisingly unexpected delicious dinner and a bottle of wine we merrily explored the old town. Most things shut quite early, so we didn't really have the chance to see much. But it did give us an idea what Hoi An is all about. It is laied back and people are super nice. I actually saw people pick up "trash" off the floor and disposing of it in the closest bin. We should all do the same in our own cities! How wonderful would that be?



It is a picture perfect town!
