Today calls for a celebration friends for this is my 200th post! It seems so momentous – this little food blog punching out two hundred posts for all the world to see on the interwebs.
If feels like not so long ago that I shared a recap of milestones for my 1 year blogiversary so instead of facts and figures about how far I’ve come, I thought you’d enjoy a non-food related travel post – a feast for your eyes.
On my visit to Vietnam last month I kayaked on the still, glassy waters of Halong Bay which was breathtaking, calming and humbling. Gliding peacefully and quietly on the water of this world heritage listed site, surrounded by nature at its untouched best, was an experience I’m truly grateful for.
Halong translates to ‘descending dragon’ and legend has it that Halong Bay was created by a dragon from the mountains. Although many sailors claim to have seen Vietnam’s very own Loch Ness monster, the ‘tarasque’, sadly I didn’t catch a glimpse of the gigantic sea creature.
I’m told Halong Bay can be very busy during peak season so I feel lucky to have been in the area when many others weren’t, to really appreciate the tranquility.
So there you have it – I hope you enjoyed some of the snaps of my stunning kayak through the grottoes. And now that the fun is over, it’s back to writing more food posts to share with you! I’ve got loads more up my sleeve so plenty more is coming your way.
I hope you’re enjoying reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them! I appreciate you being here – interacting with you is one of the best parts of having a blog.
Friends, I’d love your feedback. Is there anything you want to see more of on the blog?
