Through my eyes: the streets of Saigon, Vietnam

I’m really missing Vietnam right now. Yeah, I was only there for a week and a half, and yeah, it was only my first time. But it just felt right, being there. Something within me connected with that country, and my soul truly aches to return as soon as I can (I’ve got a little/big plan in the works for that… stay tuned!). So I’m gonna go with a Vietnam theme this week, looking back on some great memories and reminding me of the amazing world out there for me (for you, too) to discover 🙂

I found Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) to be a fascinating city, and really wish I’d had more time there. It was very busy, the traffic was insane and every time we went to cross the road felt like we were tempting fate just a little more. I felt like the people of the city would have really had some stories to tell, if I’d only had the time (and an interpreter) to listen… add it to the list of cities to return to!

    • Ohh thank you so much, that’s such a beautiful thing for me to read! My best advice for Saigon is to try not to be overwhelmed, and to take it all for what it is. It’s a crazy city, but it’s beautiful if you just see what’s there instead of looking for what you want to see. And smile at everyone – they’ll smile back most of the time 🙂 can’t wait to hear about your trip!
