Destination Vietnam

So it's about 6 weeks to go, which is a while off, but I'm starting to get excited and decided to start our travel blog!
Thought I'd let you all know where we were off to and when...

We depart Melbourne Town on Tuesday 3rd July at some ungodly hour of the morning I believe, stopping over in Singapore (we're flying Singapore Air btw) and then catching another flight to Hanoi.

As we are going with Daniels mums side of the family (9 of us total!), we are doing a tour through Intrepid. If you're really that obsessed with our wonderful selves and want to plot our every movement head on over to the Intrepid website and look up The Reunification Express.

But basically we start in Hanoi, the capital then we move on up to Halong Bay which is apparently very beautiful, and we'll be boating it for a couple days thar.

Then we head down the east of the country, stopping in Hue a couple days and then the next stop on our trip is Hoi An, which I'm very looking forward to visiting and having some clothes tailored for me. I can finally get some BOOTS!!!

Then after Hoi An it's off to Nha Trang, which is the most touristy place in Vietnam and after a couple of days there, it's off to Saigon aka Ho Chi Minh City, where we conclude our tour and will be there several days.

But all good things must come to an end and we will have to return to our normal lives on Saturday 21st July.

If you wanna check out what we're up to just scribble this link down somewhere, stick it on your fridge, build a shrine...

Until then..
Don't get hit by a bus.
