Taking five in MuiNe

I’ll tell you a secret. We never go to the beach at home. As much as I love it, my E is terrified of sharks. And I mean terrified. Funny thing is she’ll sit back and watch Shark Week on Discovery Channel every year, feeding her fear, and I suffer with lack of beach visits. The realities of being in a relationship, haha. But when we arrived in resort town MuiNe on the fourth leg of our Vietnam holiday she couldn’t resist the calm waters of the Pacific Ocean. Score!

48 hours in Saigon

From the minute we touched down in Ho Chi Minh I knew we weren’t in Kansas anymore. The air is thick, the roads are insanely busy and the sun beats down. It’s a fast paced, forever moving city, and definitely a culture shock for this lazy day woman. Perth is nothing compared to the insanity of Ho Chi Minh, in fact I couldn’t even compare Sydney or Melbourne to this cray! Don’t get me wrong, Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) is full of culture and colour and noise, but this small town girl probably couldn’t handle the 24/7 noise and beep beep-ing for an extended period! But it was an amazing start to our Vietnam adventure.

FRINGE WORLD: A Storm In A D Cup

Fringe is my favourite time of the year. The city is buzzing with activity, something new and exciting is happening on every corner and there is literally something for everyone. From comedy to cabaret, burlesque to boylesque, you need to get into the city ASAP. Trust me, if you don’t visit Fringe World this month I’ll have to smack you. Noodle Palace was the venue of choice for tonight’s Fringe adventure (and my first of the season) for a storm. A Storm In A D Cup.
