- There have been a lot of photos of this new giant hand bridge since it has recently opened. It is a cool bridge however if you get there early to try and avoid the crowds you find it's controlled by teams of wedding photographers getting the perfect shot of the bride (with a big group of people waiting to get past 🙄 in the background). The bridge is within sun world park a place I found confusing due to it being a French town on a veitnamise hill, were they sell Italian food and German beer. It does make for a good day though.
- The Japanese bridge is an iconic piece of architecture in Hoi An Ancient Town. The bridge was constructed in the 17th century to connect the Japanese community with the Chinese quarter as a symbol of peace. ———
Fun fact! The bridge is featured on the 20,000 Vietnamese Dong banknote. Missed photo opportunity 🤔

- "Sài Gòn mai gọi nhau bằng cưng,
Đôi khi chầm lại mình ạ... Chậm, để kịp thấy ngay những giọt nắng tinh khôi đầu ngày đã có cái màu vàng của sự tàn phai. Chậm, để thấy sự hồi sinh đã bắt đầu ngay vủa cái rơi nhẹ của những chiếc lá vàng. Chậm, để thấy dù có muôn vàn những đau thương, hạnh phúc vẫn chờ ngày thức dậy, và chậm, để hiểu rằng chẳng có hạnh phúc nào lại chẳng có tả tơi.
Đôi khi chầm lại mình ạ... Chậm, để thấy dù có muộn màng, mùa xuân vẫn về trên những tán lá xanh non. Chậm, để thấy nỗi buồn hôm nay sẽ tan theo và niêdm vui không hẳn lung linh trong những nụ cười.
Đêm qua, giật mình thức giấc giữa khuya... Bất chợt thấy ánh trăng tròn bên khung cửa sổ... Khoác chiếc áo lạnh mở cửa ra ban công. Trăng đẹp đến ngất ngây và dường ánh trăng cô đơn hơn mình tưởng, cái lung linh vàng chỉ là sự hoang mang trang trải với gió mây.
Chậm nhé ngày, chậm nhé ta, chậm nhé tháng Chạp xanh ngời và tháng Giêng biêng biếc. Có chậm một nụ cười thì mùa xuân vẫn cứ về theo..."
- Hạ Dung -
Chậm thôi cái gì đến vẫn sẽ đến phải không nào...
Mi manchi! Có mấy thứ không còn có thể nói nữa rồi.

- Tu Hieu Pagoda, where Thich Nhat Hanh (Thay) ordained as a monk at age 16, and where he returned at age 92 after living the majority of his life in exile for his peace activism during the Vietnam War. The author of over 100 books, Thay has taught countless people how to live with peace, presence, and love. He is largely responsible for bringing the term "mindfulness" to the West and he founded the movement known as Engaged Buddhism, which applies insights from meditation to resolve social, political, environmental, and economic problems. Even after suffering a massive stroke which paralyzed the right side of his body and left him unable to speak, he keeps teaching through his action of living presently and joyfully. He is a rare example of a person who truly embodies his words--he has arrived, he is home. He is possessed by nothing, and thus possesses everything. A great teacher through and through, his teachings transcend religious borders--any border for that matter. With prescience, he leaves his words like unearthed treasures for humankind to find when they need them most.
"I have arrived, I am home" means "I don't want to run anymore." You need that insight in order to be truly established in the here and now, and to embrace life with all its wonders.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
"Take my hand.
We will walk.
We will only walk.
We will enjoy our walk
without thinking of arriving anywhere.
Our walk is a peace walk.
Our walk is a happiness walk.
Then we learn
that there is no peace walk;
that peace is the walk;
that there is no happiness walk;
that happiness is the walk.
We walk for ourselves.
We walk for everyone
always hand in hand.
Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.
Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

- VIVA L'ITALIA!
We ❤ Italy and adore its food: Lasagna, Pizza, Polenta, Risotto (rice dishes), Pesce (fish dishes), Ossobuco alla milanese (Tender veal shanks, braised slowly in white wine and served with an array of vegetables), Carbonara, Focaccia and other bread, Tiramisu, Gelato you name it. We use some Italian ingredients for several of our dishes such as Mozzarella for our handmade spring rolls with shrimps and cheese.
We were happy to welcome this cute Italian family for lunch. They have just arrived from a holiday in Cambodia and continue their journey in Vietnam. Mom is a an English professor, dad is a marathon runner and the kids excel at school. Grazie mille per la vostra visita! 😀

- Happy in Hoi An! 🇻🇳
Hoi An Ancient Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a well-preserved example of what used to be a major trading port. Buildings date back to the 15th century. I loved the colorful lanterns hanging everywhere. Lanterns also floated on the river after sunset — it was so romantic and beautiful.
- ADEUS VIETNAM! Parte 1
As imagens que acompanham este texto são de pessoas que guardamos com carinho. No entanto, este é um texto duro, que não podíamos deixar de escrever à luz do P4Kto que fizemos quando iniciámos esta viagem: relatar o que vivemos.
Aguardávamos o visto para a China em Hanoi e decidimos passar esses dias nas montanhas no norte. Ficámos numa homestay com um menino de 3 anos que todos os dias se vestia de homem-aranha. Na noite em que chegámos, o Chilly, alcunha do dono em inglês para que possamos pronunciar o seu nome, convidou-nos para jantar com a família “São 5 dólares cada”, disse. Com esse dinheiro comemos os dois pedindo do menu na homestay e ainda sobrou. Não fomos convidados a sentar sequer próximo à família, mas não nos transtornou minimamente. Tínhamos o homem-aranha sempre a entreter-nos. Pedimos para ficar mais uma noite, o Chilly informou que todos os quartos estavam cheios. Recomendou-nos outra
🇬🇧 GOODBYE VIETNAM! Part 1
The images coming along with this text are of people we hold dear. Nevertheless, this text is nothing but hard. We could not afford to skip it under the P4Kto (=pact, commitment) we made when we began this project: to report what we live.
We were waiting for the Chinese visa in Hanoi and decided to spend those days in the mountains in the north. We stayed in a homestay with a 3 y.o. boy who dressed as Spiderman every day. The night we arrived, Chilly, the owner's nickname in English so we could pronounce his name, invited us to have dinner with his family "It's $5 each," he said. With that money we both ordered from the menu at the homestay and still saved some. We were not invited to sit even close to the family, but it did not upset us at all. We had the Spiderman entertaining us. We asked to stay another night, Chilly informed us that all rooms were full. He recommended us another

- 🇻🇳 Vietnam Day 1: Hanoi Arrival
This is the moment right before we ate our first bánh mì 🥖 in Vietnam together 👫 We think there was some raw meat in them, pray for us 🤣
So many people tell me not to eat street food in SE Asia. I have been here a few times now and have always elected to eat the street food. It’s so good and you really get to taste the culture a lot more closely. I’m definitely an adventurous eater. Who’s with me!? 🙋🏻♂️
2 words we learned today:
xin chào = hello
cảm ơn = thank you
What are your favorite things to do / places to see in Vietnam? Let us know 👇🏼 we like less touristy, more local culture.
- #myvietnam 16.5.2019 just after 8pm and upon arrival at my hostel in stifling heat I knew there was one meal I needed to find, fast. #phoga was the first and last meal I had in #hanoi. This ubiquitous bowl of soup that boils for an entire day, with a broth so clear, so flavoursome, and so damn cheap.
I remember looking out the window as we were coming into land at Ha Noi and I thought to myself "it'll be good here." I could sense that from the view I had looking out my window, you just know when it'll be good.
I would say that the last bowl I had was probably the best #pho I've had anywhere. It doesn't get any better than that for $2.

- N A H A N G || Na Hang Lake 🛶
Cruising on clear emerald green water while surrounded by the magnificent greenery and majestic misty mountains of Na Hang was a truly magical experience ✨
Na Hang is located in the province of Tuyen Quang, only about 250km away from Hanoi. However it took us almost 6 hours by car to get there as the roads and infrastructure along the way are still relatively underdeveloped. Travelling to more remote and less touristy areas is definitely more challenging but absolutely worth it in the end, wouldn’t you agree? 🙌🏻
