Hey! I'm Niobe. Thanks for stopping by!

In summer 2021, I returned to the UK after 3 incredible years in Vietnam.

Now, I live in Norwich, in Norfolk. It’s worlds apart from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, but I can honestly say I have loved both cities.

While I used to spend weekends on tropical beaches and motorbiking around rural villages, I’m now embracing local weekend adventures: country walks, trips to the seaside, mooching around the Norwich Lanes and enjoying coffee and cake wherever possible.

You’ll find posts about Vietnam and my travels while living there, days out in Norfolk and UK city breaks, veggie & vegan foodie recommendations and all my favourite coffee shops.

Join me as I settle back into UK life (with plenty of throwbacks along the way)!
