A stroll through the old town of Hoi An

Hoi An Old Town

On the central coast of Vietnam is the city of Hoi An. Known for it’s well-preserved Ancient Town, food and amazing mix of architecture, it was our first destination on the trip to Vietnam. After a brief one night stay in Saigon. I’m just going to let the photos do the talking for a little while. Continue Reading

10 favourites from Vietnam

Vietnam - Saigon

It’s just shy of a week since returning from Vietnam and I’m still sitting in a sea of photos waiting to be processed. Digitally. Occasionally the task of sorting through and processing the photos can feel like, well, a task, but it’s so much fun re-living all the memories while they’re still fresh.

Sometimes when I’m out walking to the grocery store or taking a break from work and mindlessly staring out of the window, I have to remind myself that I live here. I live in Bahrain. The emphasis being on the I rather than the live. Despite having lived away from the UK for over a year and a half now, I still find almost pinching myself to believe hat I live in Bahrain.
