Vietnam ~ Part One
We arrived home from our holiday last Friday and it already feels like we never went away. How quickly you slip back into life as you know it... slightly more refreshed and inspired though I must say.
Vietnam was a fantastic place to visit and our holiday was a brilliant mix of socialising, relaxing and cultural experiences. We travelled with my husband's family for his cousin's wedding which was an incredibly fun night in itself. Reminiscing now curled up on the couch (in my flannelette PJ's haha!) and looking back over our photos I have so many things to share that I am going to have to break it up into parts so that I don't crash my computer or yours, so... here is Vietnam ~ Part One.
We flew from Singapore to Hanoi where we stayed at the amazing Hotel Metropole Hanoi. Stunning! Oozing French style it was built in 1901 and is one of the top hotels in the world and a must to stay at (for the pastries at breakfast alone). I am a proud Francophile with a huge desire to visit France again and so this was perfect for me to get a brief taste of it while in Hanoi. The interior design within the hotel is a stunning mix of French and Vietnamese style, as you'll see for yourself below. Also, see if you can spot teddy. Enjoy!
