I’m a little excited. In a few short weeks, my hubby and I will be jetting of to Vietnam. This trip signifies the reaching of a new stage in our lives. That of parents of grown-up (well, almost) children. Hubby and I were too busy saving for a home back when we first married to think about travelling much as a couple. We have done overseas trips, but usually separately or with children in tow. This trip will be just the two of us.
The trip takes care of a few firsts for us:
- Travelling overseas as a couple
- Travelling to a non-English speaking country
- Booking an all needs catered for package holiday
- Being away from all of our children for an extended period (the longest we’ve been away is 5-days in Darwin a few years ago)
We’ve been over our itinerary several times and have, at least mentally, already packed our bags with appropriate clothing for humid, sweaty days, shoes for walking, and hats for shade (not to mention suncream, insect repellent and handwipes). Next on our list of things to do is organise vaccinations. Not quite looking forward to that, but it has to be done.
My packing list also includes; notebook/pens, camera, spare memory cards, and something to read on the long bustrips between tourist destinations.
Below are a few images I’ve pinched from the Wendy Wu Tours website. I can’t wait to show you my own photos of the trip!
