heaven on earth

When describing how beautiful Halong Bay was to my daughter, Nina, she said “Mom, you say that about everywhere you go in Vietnam!”. I can’t help it…it is true.  Each destination seems to be more breathtaking than the one before.

Made the trip with my new travel buddy, Laura.  She was in Hanoi on business and I caught up with her on her last day. The next morning we made the three and a half hour drive to Halong Bay. We boarded the Paradise Luxury junk boat and began our three day tour.  Along the route, we stopped to visit floating villages, islands, caves and swimming locales. It didn’t matter if it was morning, evening, sunny or rainy, the view was always spectacular. And it was so special meeting locals and fellow travelers. But, none more so than the Starlin family from New Orleans. I spotted Drew’s (GOOD name!) Saints’ shirt and knew I had to make their acquaintance!

I hope you find my Halong Bay film entertaining.  I know I enjoyed making it just for you!

This week, Laura and I are traveling to Nha Trang, said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam. I am running out of superlatives to describe the beauty of Vietnam. Saigon Love to all, Lisa

it’s a dangerous job…

…this blogging business. If you are paying close attention, you will notice that I fall off a bridge at the end of this movie trailer! This was after a barefoot jungle trek braving rugged terrain, water buffalo, slippery rocks, goats, flooded trails AND spiders on Cat Ba Island in Halong Bay with my friend, Laura:

And you thought this was a cushy job! But, as you clearly saw, I am up for the challenge. I am now hard at work on my Halong Bay movie blockbuster scheduled for release later this week. Wait until you feast your eyes on the spectacular beauty of this little piece of “Heaven on Earth”.  Saigon Love to all, Lisa
