Good Morning Vietnam!

Good Morning Vietnam! I feel good!!!!!!

Our first morning in Vietnam and I had to use this title! 😀 Robin Williams and this movie was what I thought of when we booked our trip to Vietnam. I even watched it again before we came here.

It’s a 1987 American war comedy set in Saigon in 1965, during the Vietnam war. The film stars Robin Williams as a radio DJ on Armed Forces Radio who is  popular with the troops. Coming to Vietnam you can’t help but think Vietnam War even though there is so much more to this country but of course we needed to do a bit of a tour of some history stuff!!

So Vietnam war museum, Reunification Palace and then on Tuesday we will visit the Cu Chi Tunnels. So much war history here and so recent…1960’s and 1970’s.  A very interesting but kind of sad day.

And this same type of jeep was used by President Duong van Minh to deliver his surrender speech on April 30, 1975.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
