Wanderlust Wednesday

There’s so much that I love about Vietnam. Its food is some of the best in Southeast Asia, its history is some of the most compelling and the landscape of this long and slim land is beautifully varied. This, combined with the fact that it is very cheap to travel through as well as quite safe, makes it a travel favourite for me. I visited Vietnam in early 2010 as part of a longer trip throughout the region and even though I was only there for less than two weeks, the richness of my experiences there made it feel a lot longer than that. This selection of 15 photographs from my travels will make you want to escape to the land of the blue dragon.
