Hello from Vietnam
This is my first post of 2014! I hope you all have had a great start to the new year. That goals and dreams and resolutions have been set and that you are ready to make this year your best yet.
This post comes from Sapa, a small town in Northern Vietnam surrounded by cascading rice field terraces and 6 different tribes of indigenous people.
It's early morning here and Farmboy has just lit a fire in our room. We are watching the mist roll in while waiting for our aching muscles to wake up. We went hiking around the local villages yesterday and boy oh boy I did no realize just how unfit I am (New Years resolution number 1).
We take the overnight train to Hanoi this evening and then head to what we hope to be sun, sea and sand in a town further down south.
If we can we are going to rent a scooter and go exploring, drink more local coffee (which is sweetened with condense milk) and possible have a massage or two ($8 for an hour full body...who can resist!).
Have a wonderful week everyone. Coming up when we land back in snowy South Korea will be lots of great photographs (mostly taken by hubby) and a giveaway or two to get the new year off to an even better start.
My store will also be back in full swing with diaries and calendars to help you get your year organized in a prettier way.
