In my last post, all about my adventures in Cambodia, I said that I was going to try not to bombard you with a TONNE of pictures and places in one post anymore. So I’m back today, (and keeping to my word!), with a much smaller post. Which has made life much easier for me aswell. Sorting through 3 weeks worth of pictures in one go is not a task for the faint hearted!

Im kicking off the Vietnam posts, with some snaps from our adventures in Mui Ne. And I’m actually STILL in Vietnam while writing this. I’ve moved on from Mui Ne mind, but this is the most up to date I have been yet, woop!

We only spent a breif 2 days in Mui Ne. It’s a sleepy little beach town (at this time of year anyway), and there isn’t a whooole heap going on. But the main reason for visiting was to take a trip to its stunning sand dunes and ‘Fairy Stream’.

So at 5am, we hopped into our open jeep for the day and took a *very* windy trip to the sand dunes for sunrise. There are red and white sand dunes in Mui Ne and we visited both. Don’t ask me how but a couple of quick conversations, and no time to give it any real thought, meant before I knew it we were hopping on a quad bike ride down practically vertical drops across the White Sand Dunes. I was absolutely terrfied before, but it ended up being so much fun! Even if the exhaust had nearly burned my leg by the end of it. Health and safety standards over here just aren’t really a thing.

A paddle down the serene Fairy Stream was much needed tranquility after the madness! Walking through the natural stream with a bed of soft red sand was an experience in itself. But to add to it all, the landscapes surrounding were just stunning! We managed to arrive about 7am, just ahead of the crowds, so we had the place to ourselves, which made it all the more dreamy. And to top it all off we made it back to our hotel by 10am for breakfast and a day snoozing in the sun.
