I'm back and happy to be sharing our photos from Hoi An today. Hoi An is such a bright and beautiful place. It sometimes felt like we were walking around on a movie set because it was just so charming. We got shoes made (mixed results), went on a few boat rides, bought some art, ate the best pizza I've had seen moving to Asia, and drove a scooter to the beach. We also celebrated Christmas. Of course we missed our families, but we couldn't complain too much when we were busy exploring such a pretty town! :)

Next up: Beautiful Halong Bay!
