Vlog #16: Contiki Big Indochina Adventure: Hoi An, Vietnam
Every time we stop at a town in Southeast Asia that has a European flare, I get a little giddy inside. Maybe it’s the fact that I have never been to Europe and I really want to go.
Due to a 3 hours plane delay getting out of Nha Trang, we had to rush through everything in Hoi An. I don’t believe I have ever been so efficient so early in the morning in regards to getting stuff done (GSD) — the acronym we came up.
Starting at 7:00am till 8:15am we ran half way across town and back – twice, to two different shops to pick up our custom clothing and jewelry items. That’s one thing these video don’t really show. There was A LOT of going back and forth, my suit had two different fittings and the rings that I got made had two as well. (Stay tuned for a separate, more detailed blog post on those).
My Son Temples
I love temples and architecture, but I must admit at almost 20 days into the tour and after the massive day that was Angkor Wat, I was feeling a bit “templed out”. I really do hate myself for even thinking or saying that since I’ll most likely never seen these temples again.
I think my bitterness was due to the fact that it was unbelievably hot and I picked the absolute worst day to do laundry and hence was stuck with only my black yoga pants to wear- Karma.
Vietnamese Cooking Class
If you can recall I already did a Thai Cooking Class; we’ll here is the Vietnamese Edition. A bit more chaotic then the Thai version as there was the option to buy alcohol during this class.
Regardless, all of my food was edible this time around which is always a win!
YUM!! Okay, I think I did pretty good :)
