Halong Bay

We just arrived back in Hanoi after a 3 day trip around Halong Bay. We upgraded to a fancy boat which was really nice and only had 3 other couples on it. We all got along really well and had a great time. Halong Bay was absolutely breathtaking with giant karsts beyond what the eye can see. It was pretty unreal to lay on your bed, sorrounded by windows while watching giant karsts pass by. We have some great pictures and can't wait to share them. The trip didn't end so well... Geoff got sick (the yucky one that most westerners get when coming to SE Asia!)and had to miss some of the fun and I got stung by a jelly fish! Despite our sour belly and aching leg/foot we spent the last few hours exploring the night market back in Hanoi and experiencing the street side food scene! We fly out early tomorrow to Danang and will then go straight to Hoi An where we are looking forward to getting a few outfits tailored!
