I’ve been to the north, i’ve been to the south — but my favourite part of #vietnam is in the middle, especially in a lovely little town called hoi an.
:::::::::
colourful lanterns are strung high above the pedestrian walking roads between cute shopfronts. a river runs through the old town and shops and restaurants line either side of the street. at night, small floating paper baskets holding tea light candles float in the river among rowboats carrying passengers for a scenic evening ride.
:::::::::
if you make it to vietnam on your travels, be sure to make time for hoi an!

Lotus flower iced tea — possibly the yummiest drink i had in vietnam and it was only $0.50! it’s made from over a dozen herbs and spices including lotus flower, ginger, and lemongrass. each drink is topped with a pretty leaf and petal. 🌱🌸

Have you travelled to vietnam yet? if you have the time to fully explore the country (3 weeks minimum) you can fly in one airport and out the other, travelling efficiently through the country in one direction — by plane, train, or bus!
:::::::::::::
this is my second time in vietnam — the first, i was still working my 9-to-5 and only had enough vacation time to see the north (hanoi, halong bay, sapa). this time, we returned to see the rest of the country at a more leisurely pace — fully enjoying what this vibrant country has to offer. {see my ig stories for more on vietnam}

We’re in vietnam to attend a wedding! thanks to the new bride and groom for letting us use their beachfront infinity pool at a resort in vietnam; left unnamed because we (and the ten others with us!) shouldn’t be in this pool in the first place so i’ll keep quiet about it. 🀫 swipe to see the pool. .

Hurray! we are in vietnam to begin part iii of our round-the-world tour. we are wearing helmets because we are in the midst of motor biking the famous hai van mountain pass in central vietnam.
:::::::::::
to clarify we were riding on the back of two motorcycles — normally steve is fine with scootering us around in small cities but with the crazy vietnamese traffic (anyone who’s been there knows exactly what i’m taking about) and winding mountain roads, we didn’t dare put our lives at risk and hired professional riders instead. 😝

Swedish culture is based around the concept of “lagom” — which means something like not too much, not too little, not too noticeable, everything in moderation.
::::::::::::
based on a study of the country’s culture compass (you may remember this term from business school or a psychology class) the dominant values in swedish society are caring for others and quality of life. in fact, quality of life is what the swedes view as a sign of success — standing out from the crowd is not admirable.
::::::::::
quality over quantity: i love this mentality where work life balance is a priority — and i could see signs of it wherever i looked in stockholm. i won’t be forgetting this any time soon!

Saying bye to london after two weeks.
the time we’ve spent in some of the countries we’ve travelled to this year is what would have been our entire annual vacation while we were still working.
::::::::
our north american vacation time off is way less than our european counterparts — some of whom get a minimum of five weeks a year! how are we supposed to be inspired by newness, develop as people, understand other cultures, and gain independence away from the comforts of home — if our society dictates that we get such little time off to do so?
::::::::::
my advice: if you ever get a chance to travel between jobs, between clients, between contracts, between school terms, between life obligations — just do it. it’s so rare to get a chance to see the world, if travel is a priority to you, make time for it. ♥️
