My tour of Vietnam continued further down the country, with another train ride taking us from Hoi An to Quy Nhon, a coastal town in central Vietnam. We spent a wonderful few days there. Here are a few words about our time in Quy Nhon.
Bright blue skies and golden sand. Turquoise waves that lap against the shore, breathing in and breathing out. Craggy rocks jut out of the beach, beautiful shells are dotted around the sand and fishing boats scatter the waters. The cool sea breeze blows on my face as I read in the pool and I gaze out at the tropical landscape at the end of every page.
The sea touches the shore gently, yet just metres out, the waves are larger. We swim, we splash, we surf (without boards, which isn’t all that successful to be honest). The warm water is a haven from the heat of the air, and we lie back and float, bobbing about on the waves.
My favourite colours, my favourite landscape, my favourite sounds. A beautiful place to be.
