28 Pictures~Vietnam

My man and I had the opportunity to travel to Vietnam over Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) break.  What a blessing that was!  I had traveled to Thailand and the Philippines with my girlfriends in the past, and had a blast, but being able to travel with my husband was a true treat.  We found a good deal on a luxury hotel and had a beautiful time.

Probably the biggest thing we noticed was the people were so nice.  Almost a little...too nice.  There are only so many times you can be interrupted at breakfast/lunch/dinner before you decide you'll have to order room service next time.

Jokes aside, we had a wonderful time and I so much enjoyed getting to see and know another part of the world.

Most of these photos were taken with the iPad.

1. Absolutely one of the first things we noticed were how many people rode on mopeds!  There were more mopeds and bicycles on the streets than there were cars or people.  They zipped by us in our private van and we stared--mesmerized--for the first hour of our trip. 

2. Bicycles too--everywhere!  Seems like a good idea! 

3. Scootin' in Style

4. Out the window on our way to the hotel. 

5. Hey, they really do wear those triangley hats here!

6. My handsome man on his bicycle at Saigon Petro. 

7.  So happy to be taking a bike ride in the country side. 

8.  Us on the beach.

9.  By a lotus pond/cow field I am clearly so excited!!

10. Fishermen's nets. 

11. Afternoon boats. 

12. Fisherman

13. Dead Fishy

14. Oh my gosh Pho--please feed me!!! Thank goodness we can get this two blocks from our house. (Best enjoyed in Vietnam though, I must admit.)

15. All you can eat breakfast you better believe my man capitalized on those steaks.  Every morning.  MMMM...as MANY as he wanted!! 

16. Drinks by the pool = a happy girl :)

17. Fresh bread bowl for breakfast = also a happy girl :)

18. Flowers greeted us around every turn. 


20. Hall leading to dining area/beach

21.  Our home for a few days <3

22. Infinity pool + ocean

23. There was hardly anyone else there!!  It was so relaxing and private, just what I need/love.  

24.  Lovely gardens to walk through. 

25.  On the way back to Ho Chi Min City (Saigon) our driver stopped at a few places for us to take pictures.  It was fun to get out and feel the heartbeat of the city.  Someday I'd like to go back and explore more.  This is a replica of Notre Dame (I THINK...he's was a bit difficult to understand). 

26. ? Who knows. 

27. Buzzy night streets. 

28.  Old president's/king's place?  Before the '60s?  Sheesh I should know more history.  The driver explained it.  Didn't understand a word he said.
