Oh My word. How time flies. I haven’t had time to touch on the 3 weeks we just had in Australia and already our time in Vietnam is drawing to a close. Actually its only the traffic in old quarter Hanoi that’s crazy. Everywhere else we’ve been its been much more respectable. Which isn’t to say the cities of Hoi An and Hue aren’t busy, they are just not on the same scale as Hanoi. However we have also found time to enjoy some peace and quiet in Halong Bay and in some of the temples and tombs around Hue. The food of course has been very different and the kids deserve a medal for the number of new and exotic things they have tried. As ever we are constantly on the move and so I will try and be less tardy with the next update and write something more about New Zealand and Australia in the near future.
