After a couple weeks Andreas' Visa expired and he headed back to the U.S. The rest of us had planned to head to Indonesia at this point but decided we wanted more time in Vietnam. Zach, Quynh, and Sherrie headed south for the sunny beach resort of Nha Trang while Amber and I set off west for the green hills of Sapa before heading south back into central Vietnam.
The van that took us to the bus broke down but eventually we made it to this awesome and comfortable sleeper bus
The view from our hotel, gorgeous!
Amber met Ha while traveling in Thailand, she graciously let us stay at her homestay, eat at her restuarant, wear black hmong clothes… it was an incredible experience
They made us incredible dinners
It’s more green during rice season
A beautiful valley
Such an idyllic place
Exploring the caves
We found someone recording a music video!
And of course he has an entourage
Has to be one of the prettiest places we visited
BBQ pork banh mi, bought a couple extra for the road
A little town near Da Nang that lights up at night
Just a little bit touristy
But it’s very appreciated, unlimited fruit and fruit juice and a room for less than $20 a night
Newlyweds are all over the river dropping lanterns (wishes) down the river!
The view from the little eatery we dined at. Stayed for awhile and enjoyed the view :)
Leaving this wonderful country for Hong Kong and new adventures!
