Tales From A Broad

My year of teaching English in Japan is up. Next mission: backpack Asia before going home to the U.S.A. Currently HOME!





Halong Bay, Vietnam


Not many sunsets rival this one.


A cruise in Vietnam? Halong Bay is where you can do it, where almost 2,000 limestone islands dot the coast of northern Vietnam. A Vietnamese legend tells of a family of dragons that came to Vietnam to protect them against the Chinese invaders by spitting jewels in the ocean, which eventually turned into these jungle islands.


Cruising through all the tiny islands.



One of the caves we went to (thanks for letting me steal this one Dave).


Caves and beaches can be found on many of these islands, and a picturesque sunset/sunrise is a given. We took a 2-day cruise boat along this UNESCO heritage site that turned into a party boat by night.

We explored caves, jumped off our boat into the ocean, slept on the rooftop,played the guitar, and just vegged out. It was the perfect relaxation from the hiking we did in Sapa.


The cops who tried to negotiate my hand in marriage.
