I've had somewhat of an exorcist episode the last week. I don't know whether it's the food or just my non-smoking immune system but hopefully it buggers off soon. I know, what the hell Vietnam. So, I hadn't been up to much but I couldn't stick around Hanoi forever so I took advantage of the only storm-free days in Sapa and headed there. Because what's better for a cold than trekking through hills for 2 days!
Check. Out. THAT. View.
I mean just as well after a 6 1/2 hour bus journey including the most sweat-inducing, tense 2 hours of my LIFE, up the mountains. Who needs skydiving?! 

We spent the two days trekking through the local villages, accompanied by local Hmong women who belong to an ethnic group living in the valleys. I know everyone says it but honestly the photos don't do the place justice. The sheer scale of this place is incredible. 


  1. Amazing photos Louise. Adventure of a life time. Enjoy x

  2. Is an ingredient of your agenda to seek out the most scrumptious Vietnamese pudding and bring the recipe back with you? xxxxx

  3. It wasn't but it is now! XXXX


Good day to you!
