A Once-in-a-Lifetime Trip

We just got back from the most amazing vacation I've ever been on (Sorry Kyle, getting head-butted at Disney World has been knocked from its perch). We an 9 other friends went backpacking through Vietnam. What an place. The country and the people are arguably the most beautiful in the world. I loved every minute of it (Well, almost - for a not-so-loved minute, check out Michael's blog). As promised, I have returned with pictures. There are far to many to put all of them, but I'll try to give you a nice timeline of our adventures.

We started with a 30 hour train ride.

This is how much room we had. I was on the top of 3 bunks.

Finally in Vietnam. Michael loved that we were millionaires. Exchange rate is awful.

Hanoi. Capitol city. I love it there.

One of many sleeper buses we had to take as we went stop to stop through Vietnam.

Finally to the beach. Mui Ne=most amazing beach ever. This is how life should be.

Our resort. Pretty incredible for $20/room/night.

Mui Ne is a big kite surfing beach. It was really cool watching them all.

Me & my sweet husband - sunset on the beach.

Never thought I'd try surfing in my life, but I did and I loved it!

All of us at our favorite restaurant. We ate here at least 7 times.

Here it is. Good Morning Vietnam. They serve Italian. Amazing brick oven pizzas.

The only picture I got of Saigon. Notre Dam of the East or something like that. Our last day in Vietnam :(


  1. A wonderful description of our adventure. Thank you for planting our memories on cyberspace so that we can never forget them. And thank you for posting that depressing picture of my hairline. Love.

  2. Love, love, love the sunset photo! You guys look like you are having the time of your lives. Thinking of you TODAY.

  3. Great pictures! Looks like a wonderful trip :) Miss you guys! Praying daily :)
