So long, Saigon

 

An old gunner fort on the left, a stunning view to the right, and some Vietnamese kids that have put our difficult history in the rear-view mirror. Welcome to Vietnam.

It is with some sadness that I say goodbye to Vietnam. When we arrived in Vietnam about three weeks ago, I was anxious about how we could adequately see this county without feeling rushed. But we did it. Between the beautiful land and the exceptionally friendly people, I was blown away by the vibrancy of Vietnam.

Much like Israel, Vietnam is a small country that features many different types of environments and landscapes. I become much more attached to places with this type of rare ecological diversity.

From the cliffs of Halong Bay

To the Miami-esque beaches of Danang and Nha Trang

To the cool rainforest waterfalls of Dalat

I actually repelled down these waterfalls. It was such a dumb idea and so much fun

The rolling mountains between each city
And the desert sands of Mui Ne

Vietnam really has it all. And each of these stops is full of locals who love to drink beer, eat good food, and sip on the best coffee in the world. What’s not to love about this place?
