Hello everyone, I hope you’re all well! After two incredible weeks away in Vietnam, it’s so so lovely to be back to work again. The time off was absolute bliss, but coming back to a job that you love is so lovely and of course exciting. No doubt you saw peeks of our holiday on Instagram when I could get my phone in range of the internet… We had the most incredible time away, it was so special to be able to visit Vietnam again after backpacking through this beautiful country for a month 6 years ago.
This time around though we were able to visit places that our backpacking budget wouldn’t stretch too - it was a dream come true to sail amongst the islands in the truly magical Ha Long Bay and treck through villages nestled aside rice paddy terraces in Sapa. We fell in love with organised chaos of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh again, as we didn’t spend much time there before, and were so blown away by how much Hoi An has grown in the past six years, it was so lovely to see this sleepy town come to life - plus the food in Hoi An is truly stunning, we were so spoilt for delicious new meals everyday. The whole trip was beyond perfect, and we are so lucky to have been able to visit again. If you’re ever thinking of visiting Vietnam as a peek into South East Asia - go, you will adore the culture, food and people so much. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful two weeks, I’m so excited to be back and I can’t wait to share what new plans I have in store for Made From Scratch. x
