Journey to Ho Chi Minh, Hoi An, Hong Kong

We are off for a 'look see' to Ho Chi Minh next week. 
This is different from other postings in that we have a house 
waiting for us. The school is already sorted which will make life easier.
The trip will consists of tours, meetings and hopefully a notebook
full of answers to the many questions I have. 
When I return, we shift into full gear for our move in July.
I admit I am anxious but remain positive.

After a few days in Ho Chi Minh we will fly to Danang and
make our way to the Nam Hai Resort in Hoi An.
I am not so nervous about that... :)

The Nam Hai
Hamlet 1, Dien Duong Village
Dien Ban District, Quang Nam Province

From Hoi An we travel back to Ho Chi Minh for a day or two 
and then onto Hong Kong for a few days, my first visit. 
Now this part I really like..

The Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong
8 Finance Street
Central Hong Kong
I say.... let the journey begin!

Travels to Vietnam via London

I travelled to Vietnam via Daunt Books in London yesterday.
This has been one of my 'must see' bookshops in London
and I was not disappointed. Of all the bookshops I have visited, 
I think Daunt has the most extensive reading on Vietnam.

I took a quick snap of the shelves for 'in home' investigation.
As I do, I will add them to my Vietnam Inspiration shopping folder.
The shopping folder is via Amazon USA. I use it as a reference tool.

  Some I buy on Amazon UK and others I buy along the way. 
On this occasion, I picked up...

I am off to Ho Chi Minh City in two weeks. 
Time to start planning. So glad I created this blog!
It has already been an invaluable resource tool for me.
I hope someday, it proves to be the same for others.
