Week 3

For our final week, we flew to Vietnam. The volunteer portion of our trip was complete so the last week with our group was focused solely on learning about the history of Vietnam and experiencing Hanoi, monuments and culture. Our biggest highlight of Vietnam was visiting Ha Long Bay and Cat Ba Island where we stayed overnight on a boat. Ha Long bay was filled with tons of little islands scattered throughout the green water with little bits of jungle on top of them, with lots of hidden beaches and caves only accessible by kayaking. I was able to explore lagoons through caves. I even saw a troop of monkeys while kayaking climbing on the rocks and through the trees about halfway up the cliff. Definitely another highlight of the trip. I also enjoyed trying new dishes in Vietnam such as Pho Tai Chin which was a broth of noodles, well done and half done beef. I also was able to try egg and avocado Banh Mi. I always love trying new and unique foods. After three weeks of traveling with our small group saying goodbye and flying home was bitter sweet. We had some amazing adventures together, some more enjoyable than others, but in the end we all became really close and helped out a lot of families and kids in Cambodia.
