What Are You Packing?

In honour of the Full Moon and the Full Moon party (to the humans making the trip, bless your souls) I've decided to post a blog I wrote for a different website that hasn't been used.  Clearly this isn't what I would normally write about. Beauty/Makeup/Fashion is way out of my realm but I think I … Continue reading What Are You Packing?

Da Lat

With its cool weather, Dalat is an amazing escape from the heat you can't seem to escape in Ho Chi Minh City. It's also an insanely cheap trip - a sleeper bus costs 200,000 Vietnamese Dong, which is about 10 USD and a night at a Hostel is around 5 USD. I stayed at DaLat Central … Continue reading Da Lat

Motorbike Chronicles Pt. 2

Did you think my Motorbike drama would be over? I did too. To my dismay, it is not over. For a while I was smooth sailing. No accidents, no whiskey throttles, perfect parker. I would even go as far to say that I was a really good motorbike driver. Until I nailed the man on the ferry … Continue reading Motorbike Chronicles Pt. 2

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.
