2020 Travels
Vietnam


February 9 - 17, 2020

Ever since our wonderful trip to China in 2016 we have been yearning to return to Southeast Asia; partly for the culture and partly for the delicious food. Vietnam did not disappoint.

Below: Hanoi was a blast! Downtown is super busy and super fun - always something interesting to see on the streets.

Vietnam was much better than expected - so fun and so easy to get around. We would love to return some day. Next stop: Cambodia.
