Last Day at Sea

123 Two weeks after landing in Hong Kong, we were finally at the end of our journey down the coast of Vietnam (but not without a quick visit to our final destination, Saigon!). This was an entirely unique trip (by sea!) for me and I absolutely loved the experience! There were one or two days of rough water, but other than that it was smooth sailing and a beautiful, relaxing way to travel.

PS: Coming back home to Lucia was THE best!!!

Nha Trang

1234 6th stop: Nha Trang, Vietnam. Finally, the world-famous beaches of Nha Trang. This is my happy place: sun, sand, water and waves. I definitely could have enjoyed several more days of this!

PS: This is my new favorite swimsuit! I’d love it in white too – the fabric is thick, stretchy and the full swimsuit is lined with an additional layer.

Hoi An & Quy Nhon

3 413 4th & 5th stops: Hoi An & Quy Nhon. Hoi An is a wonderful, charming little city. We toured the countryside by bicycle, peddling through narrow pathways between rice paddies and along the riverfront scenery. It was enough to work up an appetite for a 9 course meal in town (spicy clam soup! crispy fish with mango sauce!). And of course, we walked along the many storefronts filled with silk.

PS: You might notice a few pieces popping up over and over again… I managed to pack carry-on only(!!!) for this 2-week trip. But I can’t really be all that proud – I might have underpacked just a bit!

Happy Monday!
