Seems so fitting that my 100th blog post coincides with two years of Saigon Love blogging, my two year wedding anniversary, and two years of living in Vietnam. Please indulge me for a minute as I express a few thoughts about these little milestones:
- SAIGON LOVE – Although excited when I began this blog, two years later, I am also grateful for this online diary of my time in Vietnam. I have learned so much about writing, video making and photography. So far, Saigon Love has had over 17,000 visits from 97 countries! So crazy when I think that this began as a medium to share my photos and experiences with family and friends.
- VIETNAM – I fall more in love every day with this amazing country. There are so many dimensions to its diverse culture that I could live here 100 years and still have more to explore. In the past two years, I have traveled over 250,000 miles to 31 cities in over 9 different countries. And I would be lying if I said the exquisite cuisine did not factor into the pleasure of my time here! But sweetest of all, is my widening circle of friends in Saigon. I am so blessed to have made meaningful friendships here that I will carry with me long after I leave Vietnam.
- PAUL – So appreciative of my husband for his contributions to this wondrous and beautiful chapter of my life. Thank you, my sweetie.
And thanks to everyone who reads Saigon Love. So gratifying to know people are interested enough to read my blog. It keeps me blogging away. Here’s to year three! Saigon LOVE to all, Lisa
