We fretted about going to Vietnam; it just seemed so…foreign. When we finally made the decision to go, we were still hesitant and anxious about our trip. In hindsight, it was all for naught. Vietnam ranks as one of our favorite countries in the world. That’s not to say visiting Vietnam was easy or without mishaps – because, believe us, there were plenty of them – but it’s all part of a place that completely stole our hearts.
We were in Vietnam for one month on that first visit and have since returned for another month long stay…and are eager to go back yet again to see more of the amazing country!
