    Travel: Beach in Hoi An Vietnam

    The beach in Hoi An Vietnam is such a relaxing place. It’s not too busy and the water is warm in May. One thing to watch out for – you have to pay to sit at the luxury chairs. No signs, or at least there weren’t any signs when we were there. Then we got yelled at as we left – it was kind of funny, actually. Okay, let’s get to relaxing! The Beach We rode our bikes to the beach and paid 1$ to…

    Travel: Eats in Hoi An Vietnam

    Eats in Hoi An Vietnam – the places to eat and what to order! Being a Celiac it’s a bit harder to travel and find safe food. In Hoi An, I fell in love with two places that are so amazing at helping; and, the food is awesome! Eats in Hoi An Minh Hien This place is vegetarian, yet so good. Seriously. Order the banana leaf or the special. We ate there twice on our trip. And, we even rode our bikes for 15 minutes…

    Travel: Bikes in Hoi An Vietnam

    Hoi An Vietnam is made awesome by bikes. Our hotel, the Golden Bell Homestay, offered them for free with our stay. Most hotels do the same, yet be sure before you book. In Siem Reap we rented them for $2.00 a day, which is quite low. Bikes in Hoi An First, it’s hot in Hoi An so be sure to cover up with sunscreen. Second, know where you’re going.

    Travel: Golden Bell Homestay Hoi An

    In Hoi An we stayed at the Golden Bell Homestay – such a great location. It is halfway between the beach and Old Town. Since in May, when we visited, it was about 104 degrees or 40 for my Canadian followers, which meant short bikes trips were best. Oh and water – the beach saved us. Okay – this little place is adorable. They offer great wifi and offer complimentary breakfast – such a great selection of fruit. They also offer free bikes (with lights…

    Travel: Hoi An Snapshot

    The ancient town that was credited as a world heritage site in 1999 is full of history. Although they heavily rely on tourism and the shop owners seem to be more aggressive than any other place we’ve visited, the town is beautiful. Hoi An is a bike friendly town and our hotel has free town bikes for guests to use – it’s awesome. The odd thing is, however, that the city has more people than my home town of Sault Ste. Marie and yet I…
