The 'Look See' Visit: anticipation Saigon


Writing from  Collage of Life....

The day has finally arrived. It is time to put the pedal to the metal,
to hit the highways and byways, to take to the sky....
My son, Connor, and I are off to Vietnam for our 'look see' visit. This is
when it all comes together. More importantly, we are both excited
to see Mr. H again, it has been six weeks, six weeks too long.

We will visit the house we will call home in few months time, the school Connor
will be attending with dinners, luncheons and tours thrown in to give us the 'big picture'.
I will be honest and say that I am a bit nervous. Ho Chi Minh is not London, not by
any stretch of the imagination. Yet... it will be an interesting change and one we
all intend to make the most of. What is life without a little adventure?

I came upon the following clip, created by the very talented, interior and furniture designer,
Barbara Barry. I was so happy to have discovered this, especially today.
Barbara travelled to Asia looking for inspiration for her 'Indochine' line.
She talks about how and where she found it. What she has to say could apply to any of us.
If you have a moment, take a look.  It's inspiring. :)





In between the travels to Ho Chi Minh, we will travel to Hoi An for a little R&R
and then on to Hong Kong...our first visit. It is all happening around here
and of course...you know what is coming next.
