Before you skip this and you miss the best of the best, remember to:
SCROLL HALF WAY TO SEE THE MAGICAL LIGHTS OF HOI AN AND THE PICTURES OF THE MEKONG DELTA MARKET BEFORE SUNRISE!
Vietnam Photo journey will tell you more about my memories and impressions of this amazing place on earth,
and I hope that after watching this you’ll go there!
All photos were taken with my new Fujifilm xt20, which I simply LOVE!
My husband and I decided to travel to Vietnam because last year we visited Indonesia and fell in love with it…therefore we wanted to see more of that part of the world!
To me travelling is about living , knowing annd deeply understanding ,
it’s about questioning your life and the way you live it .
Vietnam, with your crazy traffic and noise in Hanoi you shocked me at first but your landscapes, your culture , your nature totally got me .
Vietnam you are out of this world and this is what I loved most about You.
We started our trip in Hanoi, then moved to Mai Chau village where our guide kind of forced us to play volleyball (I can not believe there’s someone who loves volleyball more than me lol!). Just like that in a second we found ourselves in a remote village where life feels easy even if it’s not.
When the game was over, I looked around, I saw beautiful faces, children playing and a unique and undescribable landscape.
How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful world where diversity gives shape and colors to life.
Our adventure continued in Halong Bay, watching the sun waking up amongst its green mountains is something you need to see with your eyes.
Back to Hanoi we continued to Ninh Binh that was almost better than the bay if it’s possible!
Hue was when rain started and to use Forrest Gump’s words:
“We’ve been through every kind of rain there is. Little bitty stingin’ rain, and big ol’ fat rain, rain that flew in sideways, and sometimes rain even seemed to come straight up from underneath. Shoot, it even rained at night“.
In spite of this the Imperial city in Hue was very beautiful and we really enjoyed the tombs with their unique architecture.
But what We really LOVED the most was Hoi An, there I felt like Alice in Wonderland , I can spend one whole month in Hoi An taking photos,
Hoi An is so beautiful with all its magical lights that it looks unreal
and guess what on the last day it even stopped raining….for a few hours of course!
Our Mekong Delta trip lasted 3 days and it was more tiring than what we expected but totally worth it, here it’s all about the rivers, the jungle and of course the Floating market. About that in order not to meet the crowd we decided waking up very early , we visited the market before dawn so when we reached the boats it was dawn (scroll all the way down to see this!)
Last few days were dedicated to Relax in the nice island of Phu Quoc where we finally rested and enjoyed an unusual December Summer!!
All photos were taken with the FUJIFILM XT20 + 35MM 1.4 AND 16-50 f/3.5-5.6 lenses.
