Photo of the Week: Children Waving Goodbye in Sapa, Vietnam

Photo of the Week: Children Waving Goodbye in Sapa, Vietnam

Hiking through Sapa was breathtaking; not only from the stunning scenery but also from all the mud sliding that was occurring. But everywhere we went the children would come running. They would grasp to hold our hands, giggle at us falling on our bottoms, and always bring a smile to face as they excitedly waved us off the next day.

Travel Route: Vietnam

Travel Route: Vietnam

Vietnam is the S-shaped country that hugs South East Asia. With a 3260km coastal border with both the Gulf of Tonkin and the South China Sea, the Country offers luscious green fields and palm tree lined beaches. With rice fields cascading down the mountains in the North and beaches calling to be relaxed on; Vietnam has it all. With traditions shaping the country even today against the modern advancements, you view woman in conical rice hats riding bikes in city or country-side, and thriving city centres buzzing with motorbikes and thriving enterprises. Visit Vietnam to experience a strong vibrant Asia country.

Travel History: 2010

Travel History: 2010

For the first part of 2010 I was on a University exchange program in Bangkok, Thailand attending Thammasat University. This was my first time in Asia and it stole my heart. I traveled around a lot due to the extremely cheap prices in South East Asia. I even headed north to Japan for 10 days to visit friends; which was the reason Japan got onto this list; I’d never afford Japan without my extremely generous friends who let me stay with them. My best friend Jeannie came to visit for the month of May and we did a whirlwind tour hitting the 4 countries of Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Singapore. I had a month off so headed to Indonesia before flying to the South of Philippines for a 2 month work placement. In September I returned to Canada to finish my last year of my undergraduate degree in the country’s capital of Ottawa.

Vietnam – Day 9 and 10 – Halong Bay

Vietnam – Day 9 and 10 – Halong Bay

Halong Bay looks like pirates of the caribbean! All the boats are called “Junks”. That is not in reference to their quality but is a Chinese name for the type of boat. That is the extent of my knowledge on that subject!

Sapa, Vietnam is a tiny village way up in the mountains and the mountians are covered in Rice Paddys. It is very beautiful. I spent two days hiking through the rice paddys into all the local villages.
