VIETNAM | Sat, 16 Mar 2013 | By gsewake | Views [577]

Hello!  We had such a good time at the Phong Nha Farmstay that we didn't get a chance to do many updates.  Long story short: the caves are spectacular, the locals are charming, the countryside is beautiful, and many friends were made.  ... Read more >

Hanoi, the Capital of Vietnam - love it or hate it?

VIETNAM | Wed, 30 Jul 2008 | By jfernandes | Views [1594]
