Reporting from Halong Bay

Today boarded our three day two night cruise on Halong Bay. I sat on the sun deck forsaking the optional activities in favor of the solitude and views from the deck. Halong Bay is one of those places to get to. Emerald green waters, limestone cliffs, cool sea breezes and wonderful food await.

Leaving the hustle and bustle of Hanoi took about three hours and we boarded our boat with a wonderful and funny crew. We had 5 course lunch and dinner and drinks and now I sit on the sun deck st nighttime. It’s been the wonder number 1 of this trip. A place I dreamt and wondered and wanted. For years. Now I have one more night in an island bungalow and then Friday back to busy Hanoi.

Words do not do justice to the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Get here if you can!
