Chao Buoi Sang Vietnam!

Just got back from a week in Northern Vietnam with my buddy, ironwulf. Arrived at the office after just a few hours of sleep to a hefty workload. Will be flying north in a few days so I guess my Vietnam excursion account -- from the karst wonders of Halong Bay, the bustle of hanoi, to the foggy highlands of Sapa -- will have to wait until next week. Meanwhile, here's to sharing a breathtaking view from a high vantage point on the stretch of road to Ta Van, southwest of Sapa.I n our ruminations along the way, Ferdz and I shared a common view - we went all the way to Vietnam to appreciate what we have back home. To echo ironwulf, don't get me wrong, I liked Vietnam. But at the same time, i saw a lot of reminders of home -- Sagada and Cordilleras in the terraces of Sapa; Coron in the karsts-filled bay of Halong Bay. Anyway, more captures and stories to come. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, enjoy the view.

bro, kakamiss na yung mga photos nyo. finally nandito na nga kayo. kanina ko lang tinatanong kay erick kung kelan ang balik nyo kasi parang ang tagal na.

this one shot is amazing! sapa indeed looks very much like sagada.

hi joanne! early bird ka ah!

brother wulf, ako yata dapat magsabi na much awaited ang entries mo :-D

dom, we were constantly reminded of you kasi there's a street named "dong ho" in hanoi :-) and we always pay in their currency called "dong". hamo, i'll post one or two more before i leave for the weekend. abangan mo rin yung mga posts ni ferdz. he's got a load of wonderful pics and interesting viewpoints.

the donG said...

yes. oo nga kasi dong ang currency ng vietnam. at meron din kasing type of art na dong ho ang tawag.

ngayon ko lang nalaman na may street din pala.

oo nga. dapat mag iwan ka ng iba pang pictures before ka bumyahe.

Wow Nice *smiles*smiles* more green, refreshing to look at. far away from pollution. Pero nagulat ako nakabalik na kaagad kayo... ni hindi ko namalayan na nakaalis kayo (so bilis ng araw). parang ako ang nabitin sa bakasyon nyo doon. Oh they're so nice talga :) upload more pics ha...

oman, hahaha, napressure ako sa sinabi mo, hahaha. i hope i have more treasures to unearth in the coming days. i just have an upcoming trip to batanes this weekend for seair so will post my vietnam chronicles in trickles.

millie, ang bilis no? kakalunch nga lang namin ni ferdz kanina and we were still looking back to the trip. saya kasi, pinakamakulit na biyahe ko ever, hahaha. tanong mo na lang si ferdz kung bakit hehehe.

please bear with me lang, i will definitely post more pics and stories as soon as my sked clears up. thanks so much for dropping by :-D
