Chinese New Year is fast approaching us and we are getting ready to embark on our first trip to Vietnam. We have been dying to get to Vietnam since we moved here especially because it is the birthplace of our dear friend Thuong Ngyuen. We fly into Hanoi and spend two days there before driving to the UNESCO site Halong Bay. We will spend one night on the bay in a junk boat and one night on Cat Ba Island before driving back to Hanoi for a night. We will fly to Da Nang and spend three nights in Hoi An and two nights in Hue. I think the thing I am most excited about is eating the scrummy food of Vietnam especially since it will be authentic. Another great thing about Vietnam is that almost every place we are staying has free wireless access, so I will be able to share photos of our time there.
Xin Nian Kuai Le!
Happy New Year! The year of the Rat!
