Rural Vietnam

31 Mar

WordPress give us a weekly photographic challenge. This week it’s Street Life as a topic.
I saw this woman on a small back road in rural Vietnam, moving her household belongings from one part of her village out along this little lane to another. Her little cart was loaded with bedroom and dining furniture and I imagined at the time she was a newly wed woman moving into her new husbands home.

Hoi An, Vietnam

20 Nov

Falling in love with Hoi An, Vietnam is an easy thing to do. Effortless really. So much so that all it took was a brief walk through the stone streets of this old French town to have my heart aching with love. I had been wanting to visit Hoi An for years after seeing photos of it in a magazine or online (I can’t remember which), and was incredibly happy to discover that the city is even more beautiful in person.  (see the whole post here.)

Wonderful shot, wondering if that’s as easy as it looks? :)

Cát Tiên, Vietnam

17 Sep

I am currently on a four month journey, traveling and eating my way around Southeast Asia. The attached video is from my recent trip to the Green Hope Lodge in Cát Tiên (Nam Cát Tiên sector), Vietnam’s largest National Park.  The lodge grounds overlook the Dong Nai River and the lush forest surrounding my bungalow offered the much needed fresh air which Saigon lacks.  I spent the day lounging on hammocks, writing in the riverside wooden cabana and eating impeccably fresh, authentic Vietnamese dishes.  This video was taken during the afternoon downpour, a daily occurrence in the monsoon season.  I laid there, relaxing and safely covered from the rain, while Mother Nature gave us relief from Vietnam’s overwhelming heat.

Feigning excitement after we realised there was none of the deck chairs that were advertised in its brochure at the tour agent. (Sent for repairs, says the boat’s tour guide).

 This image is taken on Saturday (06 July 2013) afternoon by the pool at the Sunrise Hoi An Beach Resort in Hoi An Vietnam. We’re here on a short holiday as seen through Instagram and my blog http://yummylummy.com
We’ve been visiting Ha Noi, Ha Long Bay and Hue. Now we’re in Hoi An to enjoy the beach and some cooking and snorkelling. We will be leaving via Ho Chi Minh City.

Hanoi, Vietnam

11 Jun

I wasn’t in Hanoi long before I realized “sidewalks” is a misnomer. “Beside walk” or “alongside walk” would be far more accurate, because THAT is what you do.

The old quarter is quite crowded, and the Vietnamese are very industrious, so every square inch is utilized.

Nice shots, gives a good idea good the intensity of things on those streets! :)

Vung Tau, Vietnam

Vung Tau, Vietnam
 The traffic, the heat, the crowd… Just makes you wanna kill somebody/anybody on a Monday morning. Overwhelming Ho Chi Minh City.
Stuck in the traffic jam, I was getting impatient. Really impatient. So I took the highway and drove 150 km to the beach.
It’s Thursday morning, I have things to finish, articles to read and a diagnostic to make. Who cares. I have my laptop, my guts and my freedom.
I have a blog, if you are bored. Basically there are pictures of my roadtrips in Vietnam, local tips and useless stuff. If you guys have 10 minutes to waste, go check it out right here
 
Cheers!

Don Det, Mekong River, Vietnam

8 Apr

After a sleepy couple of days on Don Det, a fishing trip sounded like the perfect activity that didn’t require too much actual activity. We booked a trip for $6 each which departed at 3pm and returned after sunset. All gear included. Bargain. There was also the option to pay $5 extra and have a BBQ where they would cook you your catch. We decided that the chances of us actually catching anything worth eating were slim to none and we also knew the sort of standards that these trips held them selves to… i.e. none, so we stuck with the basics. After a bit of standing around, we were led down to our boat. It had a foot of water in the bottom, which, bearing in mind the boat is only about two feet deep anyway, is quite a lot. They had a go at getting it out with the electric pump but that turned out to be broken too. They ushered us in to the boat and off we went. Wet feet, wet bum, wet bag. Our boat men were brothers, the eldest about 16 and his brother can’t have been older than 14.  Knowing we were in the capable hands of two… children, we set off up the Mekong in the worlds most un-seaworthy long boat.
