The Old Quarter in Hanoi: love it or hate it

The Old Quarter in Hanoi, a place I will never forget! This is where I started my travel adventure after finally quitting the corporate rat race. At first, I didn’t really like the Old Quarter; noisy, pollution, hawkers, smelly food, etc. However,...

Hanoi handicraft villages: Van Phuc and Ha Thai village

Handicrafts handicrafts! Who doesn’t love them? Well, to be honest, I don’t always like them. Sometimes handicrafts are too “handicraft-like”… By this I mean that they are not always appealing in terms of design. However, as always it is ve...

Ba Vi National Park – What to see?

Time to escape Hanoi! When living in a crazy city like Hanoi, going to peaceful and quiet places can be so energizing. But where to go? In the city center, it’s so hard (impossible?) to find places where you’re safe from the neverending honking o...

Travelogue - Ho Chi Minh

Spent a night and half a day in HCM city, which was just the right amount of time to satisfy all my Vietnamese food cravings. When I look back at all the photos of food I took, I can't believe we are that much. 😂 Finally reunited with my...

All about ceramics – Visit Bat Trang village

They were coughing; I actually should call it “choking”, but they also seem to enjoy themselves. There I was, sitting in one of my favourite coffee bars (October) in Hanoi selecting and editing some of the pictures I took a few days ago. On the o...

Travelogue - Mui Ne, Vietnam

Mui Ne has been on the back of my mind since a friend told me about it a few months ago. Something about the endless sand dunes and mystical fairy springs stayed with me. A few weeks ago, I flew to HCM and hopped onto a sleeper bus straight from...

Walking along the train tracks in Hanoi
