A land of staggering natural beauty and cultural complexities, of dynamic megacities and hill-tribe villages, Vietnam is both exotic and compelling.
‘Just be happy enough’. I love that Vietnamese attitude, it explains how they survived, and it makes more sense with each visit. I feel it dining on simply fresh seafood, or sweet, chargrilled everything, showered in herbs. The spirit of just going with it comes to me as tropical rain rolls over a beach, at a bar with mountain mists at eye level, or on the back of a motorbike with a fashion blogger. The heat slows my pace and things are simply good.
