Hello all – I just wanted to post a quick update and let you all know where we are at. We got a bit behind in the blogging for a while (as we are having so much fun) so we have only just posted about Hue.
We are currently in Hoi An, an awesome little town (population 75,000) in the middle of Vietnam (down the coast). Hoi An is pretty much a living museum as many buildings date from the first half of the 19th century (and older), it has a French/ Japanese/ Chinese/ Vietnamese feel to it and the architecture is amazing.
We actually arrived on 23rd Aug and plan to stay at least another 2 days…. ‘why?’ I hear some of you ask. Well…. not only is this place really friendly, cultural, charming and easy to get around – there is GREAT shopping! Yep, Hoi An is full of dress makers that will make clothes tailored to your needs, consequently Megan and I have gone ‘a little nuts’ and got a new wardrobe each! A trip to the post office is in order because we don’t really want to be lugging around an extra suitcase of clothes around Cambodia, Laos and Thailand!!!!
We will post soon about what we have been up to in Hoi An…. in the mean time, bed for me as I need a good sleep before doing a cooking class tomorrow morning!
I hope everyone is fine and dandy – miss you all lots
