Vietnam 

After our amazing time in Thailand we got a flight from Chaing Mai to Hanoi. We only spent two weeks in Vietnam, as we got 15 visa exemptions, but could have definitely done longer and there were so many places we wanted to go but didn’t have time! We only managed to get 4 stops…

Chaing Mai

Probably my favourite stop for the trip so far! Loads of activities and more temples than you can count. It was a nice change after a relaxing couple of weeks on the islands. We spent 4 nights here and could have stayed longer. We ran out time to do everything we wanted so unfortunately didn’t…

Sweet Potato Cake
