Part 2 and Final Explanation of Why I Named My Blog What I Did
Memories of Phuket

Hello Vietnam

"We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face...we must do that which we think we cannot."
Eleanor Roosevelt


That's me jumping off the third floor deck into 60 foot deep jelly fish infested water. Yes, I'm proud and surprised at myself ;)  I was on a two day cruise in Ha Long Bay in South Vietnam which is one of the seven natural wonders of the world.


Just in case you needed proof ;)
Above is our tour guide who demonstrated how to make spring rolls on our cruise.


There were many beautiful cruise ships out in Ha Long Bay while we were there.

Yours truly at our sunset party :)

The cute restauraunt in my hotel.  You can see the French influence that is so prevalent in this country. 


I loved the food in Vietnam!  I hadn't eaten any bread in Thailand and my vegetarian baguette sandwich was so delish!


My mango crepe with vanilla ice cream dessert was even better.


I stayed in a nice (4 star hotel).  Here is a view from my window.  My wifi worked fine.


Lastly, I will leave you with  a view of a fishing village in beautiful Ha Long Bay.

I wish I'd had more time in Vietnam.  I definitely would like to return one day.  I felt very safe and was treated very nicely.  They had really cute clothes for great prices, but I had no room in my luggage.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week.
