Our trip to the beach

A few weeks ago we went to Vung Tau, a beach town about 2.5 hours by car from Saigon. We took a boat instead (called a ‘hydrofoil’) which shortens the trip to 1.5 hours. It was decent weather and we were all in good spirits, having the urgent need for a break from this city – we hadn’t left it in nearly a year.

Upon check-in, we realized The Dear Leader of North Korea was still alive and staying at our hotel (second name from the bottom).

Jacob’s first time floating and swimming by himself!

Before leaving, I had to try the organ jam. (Orange).

This is pretty much what we were all like after the trip.

Storm clouds gathering early Sunday morning. It rained the entire day!

A good trip and a long time coming. We were glad of the sea air despite the storm and rain and felt happily tired once we got home. – Dave

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
