Vietnam travels // Introduction & Arriving


Hi you guyyyys! I've been off from blogging, then coming back and then off again. I wasn't craving blogging so I thought that I would take a break and start again when I craved it - and the time is finally here! Yaaaay :)

I think that I'll start of my new excitement for blogging with a new series - a Vietnam Travel Series. They won't have a specific scheduled time, it will just magically pop up in your bloglovin list.

At this moment I'm actually sitting in my new apartment - for the next 2 months - in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam! How crazy is that!? We're 7 girls who are staying in Ho Chi Minh City for 3 months to study but also to do our internship. I've been here for about a month now and I have so much to tell! Right at this moment I live in a 3 bedroom apartment with two sweethearts from my class but more about that in one of the following posts.

The whole journey started in Flensburg, Germany with a 2½ hour train trip as our first (out of three) flight was form Hamburg - up in the air, down again, up in the skyes, down again - the whole cha-bang took about 18 hours (It's now I tell you that I'm not the best at flying, right!?) Well, I'm getting better, getting better! Aaand finally, finally, finally we landed in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam :) The butterflies started to tickle, I felt the excitement for the next 3 months! I also felt the hot hot hot weather - and it was naayyss (Yes, today nice is spelt that way!)

 Abu Dhabi-Ho Chi Minh City: I was a little cheeky and got 3 seats for myself - sleeeeept most of the way! Except for when I watched Frozen, daah!

WARNING: Yummy food pictures will attack you!



The Calm Before Paradise
The first 2 nights we stayed in the Backpacker District - this is where most non-vietnamese people, travellers and back packers (of course) live at hostels. The hostel we stayed at was OK, nothing fancy but not the worst place. 

We arrived at about 9 pm and went up with our things, before the food-hunt began! We ordered lots of food, sharing as you do! 

After living here for about a month now I've learned - and tasted - that I freaking love vietnamese food. Tastyyy! 

The first whole day we went to discover a bit of the city, eat lots of tasty food and waiting. Waiting because we had a arranged to go to Long Hai Beach and just chil-laxing for a couple of days before the whole school-internship-race began! I'll do a whole post about our trip!

Oh and by the way, vietnamese coffee is tha' BEST!


I hope you like me coming back and getting the hang of it again. I've missed you and the amazing network! Please leave your tips, eating places and so on, if you have been in Ho Chi Minh City - I would love to hear from you <3


Lots of love - from vietnam
