Slices of Life in Vietnam

We absolutely loved Vietnam, where we spent six weeks, visiting my brother in Ho Chi Minh and exploring other cities. I have gathered here some of our best pictures from our stay in this beautiful country and which depict slices of life, in other words, moments of the ordinary life through scenes in the streets of Vietnam. These pictures bring great memories to us and represent some of the aspects of life there.

What Not To Miss In Hoi An

by Laure @ Vietnam – A Journey Away

Hoi an is a very small town but the city and the area have enough to keep you busy for a few days. It's famous for its silk lanterns (probably the main reason why I wanted to go!), but also for its shopping opportunities. There is an endless number of shops selling art crafts, bags and clothes. This is the place to go if you want tailor-made clothes (if only I had just a little bit of room left in my backpack..!).

Travel Budget – 1 Month in Thailand

by Laure @ A Journey Away

Last year, we spent a whole month in Thailand as part of our six-month backpacking trip. If we started with the idea of staying within a budget, we quickly realised that we didn’t want our trip to be entirely dictated by money. We kept our budget loose, without going crazy either, even if it meant that we needed to re-think our itinerary.

Things about Japan that you Didn’t Know

by Laure @ A Journey Away

Last year, we spent a whole month travelling Japan. While it had been a dream for Simon to visit the country, I personally didn’t expect too much from it. The idea of swarming streets and giant buildings never sounded so attractive to me. I was eventually won over by people’s kindness and their culture. Here are some things that we learned while in the country and that you might not know either.

Wondrous Words

by noreply@blogger.com (Jackie Mc Guinness) @ JUNK BOAT TRAVELS

Wondrous Words is hosted at Bermuda Onion's blog.


January 2018 - Toronto ON

I haven't joined Wondrous Words in forever!! But I do think of it often when I see new words and I always read Bermuda Onions posts.

I read this in a post by a fellow blogger and had to look it up. Now I need an opportunity to use it!

A lagniappe (/ˈlænjæp/ LAN-yap or /lænˈjæp/ lan-YAP) is "a small gift given a customer by a merchant at the time of a purchase" (such as a 13th doughnut on purchase of a dozen), or more broadly, "something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure."

The word entered English from the Louisiana French adapting a Quechua word brought in to New Orleans by the Spanish Creoles. It derived from the South American Spanish phrase la yapa or ñapa (referring to a free extra item, usually a very cheap one).


Quoits in The Disappearance of Esme Lennox

Quoits (koits, kwoits, kwaits) is a traditional game which involves the throwing of metal, rope or rubber rings over a set distance, usually to land over or near a spike (sometimes called a hob, mott or pin).

Slices of life in Japan

by Laure @ A Journey Away

As you might know it, Japan has a special place in my heart. Before spending a month there, I had barely wondered what this country would offer me and I truly had no expectations, my mind being busier thinking about how it was one of Simon’s dreams to visit it. I knew I would love Hawaii for example and I did of course, but I had no idea that I would love Japan which made my experience even more intense.

Street Food Tour in Hanoi

by Laure @ Vietnam – A Journey Away

Who wouldn’t agree that food is one of the best ways to discover a new culture? I’m French and a vegetarian, which usually don’t go together at all. Luckily for me, other countries are more open to vegetarianism than my own, like South-East Asia. Once we found out that our diets restrictions were no obstacles, we took cooking classes in Chiang Mai, Thailand and Ella, Sri Lanka. In Vietnam, no cooking class but we had the amazing last-minute opportunity to take a food tour in Hanoi the night before leaving the country.
