We took a quick family trip to Vietnam before Brad has to go to a conference in Bangkok.
Hoi An is a beautiful city. The main part of the town has amazing old buildings, a lazy river and a great market. We are loving the fresh clean air, no crowds, super friendly Vietnamese people who adore our children and the delicious food. Our room has a great terrace that looks put onto green grass and you can hear the waves crashing all night. Funny side note: so far the only people who have wanted pictures of our children (mainly Joy) are mainlanders. If we ever move to China we should charge money!
Our hotel is fantastic and a short stroll to the beach. Joy wakes up and the first thing she want to do it "go to beach ". We can barley even get her to eat breakfast!
This is our first trip with two kids. The kids have been pretty good although we have had a few meltdowns ( mainly related to hunger and tiredness). Simon has been a piece of cake ! Joy was really hard to contain in the less than 2 hr flight and even though our room is huge we are all kind of waking each other up. Note to self: don't tell your two year old you are going on the plane to go to the beach... Every five minutes she said. "Go to beach!". Rookie mistake). We are a bit nervous for the flight this summer and all being in the same room! However this stage of parenting is a bit exhausting no matter where we are and it has been so fun to get away from Hong Kong.
Brad has always has a dream to get tailored clothing. Hoi an is known for their high quality and cheap tailored clothing. Brad was able to get a suit, pants and shirts for way cheaper than the store. He looks amazing in his new clothes.
Our hotel has a spa and I went and got a delux pedicure while the kids napped. Very fun and relaxing. Brad went swimming in the pool at night, Joy has the beach and I have a full working spa...Maybe we should just move into this hotel! If only money grew on trees :)
