Binh Quoi Village

When Belinda was in Ho Chi Minh I wanted to immediately get out of Ho Chi Minh and go to Mui Ne.  However, Belinda wanted to experience the city and get a feel for what a typical week might be for me. Even though it was my birthday week, she did travel 20+ hours to see … Continue reading Binh Quoi Village

The Real MVP

BELINDA CAME TO HO CHI MINH FOR MY 23rd BIRTHDAY. It was by far one of the best birthday presents I have ever received. I was born in San Diego and grew up in Cerritos, CA.

The Instagrams That Never Made It — Pt. 2

This weeks "Grams That Never Made It" are from the weekend excursion to Sihanoukville and my first week and weekend in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It's been weird, gueyz. Good weird though.
