I have to say, this second part was planned for waaaaaay sooner than now, but sometimes life just doesn’t agree on your plans. I’ll tell you more about the 1001 things which happened in the last two months as soon as everything gets quiter (because it will happen, right?), meanwhile you can keep yourself updated via instagram (I’d love to tell you that you can keep yourself updated via snapchat as well, but I must confess I’m rarely there as well… but I’ll make amends very soon, I promise!. Anyway, later is still better than never, so here’s the second chapter of our honeymoon on the road through Vietnam. I’ll start with Ha Long Bay, one of the most incredible places where I’ve eer been. We did a 3 days cruise and that’s what I would recommend anyone doing, 2 days is really not enough in this paradise.
The weather wasn’t the kind of tropical sun you would have expected from the place (in fact there was kinda of an hurricane in the last day!), but it’s such an incredible place that honestly this didn’t matter at all. Actually I was quite sad when we moved to Hoi An, but I quite soon realised I hadn’t a reason on earth to be. Hoi An is one of the most lovely, tiny, quiet and at the same time vibrating cities in the world. We spent the first day visiting the ancient temple of My Son and then wandering around the magical streets full of lanterns. We were staying at Maison Vy, a wonderful little boutique hotel in the heart of the old city (can’t recommend this place enough!).
A very special chapter in central Vietnam to me has been visiting the Marble Mountains: it may be nothing for most people but you know when you have a certain image stuck in your eyes since forever? That image to me was this ancient door in the forset, I may have pinned it thousand times… it was one of those exotic places that I was used to dream about lik “who knows if I’ll ever get there” and it felt like a little dream coming true to eventually visit it.
So after the most lovely three days we were on the road again to visit Ho Chi Min City and the Mekong Delta. We loved our honeymoon on the road, the only thing we regret a bit was not having time to properly relax on a beach… but we really needed to be back for my season start and we thought we could have maybe another tiny break in September, but this is a whole other, new story to tell. Soon.
