Hello everyone, today marks our one year anniversary in Vietnam or as we are choosing to call it our Vietnamaversary And what a ride it has been. So i’m going to share with you some of our highlights of this past year.
We’ve travelled to Hoi An , Ninh Binh, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pai, Koh Phangan, Ho Chi Minh and other wonderful places.
We’ve made some wonderful friends here.
(Spoiler two of these humans don’t live in Hanoi but hey, enjoy a group shot that makes me look like I have friends all the same)
We have both been promoted to headteachers at our English Centres and now have centres of our own.
We’ve started to speak the language. We take Vietnamese classes and actually understand how to have conversations now with the locals.
We have learnt how to drive scooters and brave the traffic of Hanoi.
(Naomi is way better than me and has a cooler helmet)
We’ve tried more new food dishes than i can even explain. The food here is so good.
I’ve learnt to love the ocean this past trip to Hoi An. I even woke up super early to go in and play with the waves.
My fear of thunder is slowly disappearing. The constant storms in Hanoi have somehow given me no choice but to learn to love the lightning and thunder.
At least once a week Naomi and I will find ourselves saying ‘We Live Here’ in awe of Hanoi. My happiness is higher than ever before and i wake up every day more excited.
Thanks for reading,
