The realization I needed to crawl out from beneath my rock and rejoin the world came when a friend (a good friend) called me last week to check I was still alive.

"You fell off the edge of the world!" she cried, partially in awe.

It's true - for the past few months I've been on an unplanned techno-hiatus. The extinction of my cell phone only compounded matters - truth be told messenger pigeons would have been a more effective way of reaching me for a while there.

So I thought I'd celebrate rejoining the world by sharing a few snaps from my 30th birthday.

Scott & I managed to steal away for 10 incredible days in Vietnam - words seem to be escaping me in describing this incredible country - hopefully a few of these pictures will fill in the gaps:

PS - This post is dedicated to all my sensational friends and family who were seriously considering investing in messenger pigeons…



If you're visiting Vietnam (Hanoi / Hoi An / Han Long Bay) - here's our recommendations: 

We stayed
Hanoi Morgans - Located in Hanoi's Old Quarter this little hotel offers excellent value for money 
Vaia Boutique Hotel (Hoi An) - Great location, great service, great room & free cocktails 4pm - 6pm
Paradise Luxury Cruises (Han Long Bay) - For two country kids, this was the height of luxury. 9 Course Meals, Balcony Views, Private Day Cruises - worth every penny you spend

We toured: 
Hanoi Kids Walking Tour - We couldn't speak highly enough of this experience which sees Vietnamese students looking to improve their English, taking tourists on guided tours of Hanoi. Book in advance as they fill up fast
Green Bamboo Cooking School (Hoi An) - Run out of her home, Van takes small groups for a Vietnamese culinary experience. One of the highlights of our trip!

We bought: 
Yaly Couture (Hoi An) - The fashion world is your oyster…you're welcome
