This was supposed to have been a blog about how I'm growing and changing as a person while traveling and teaching abroad for a year, but it's basically pictures of food that I've eaten paired with long-winded descriptions. I like to do a lot of budgeting and accounting on my blog, so people who are interested in or are already living in HCMC can see how much things are costing for me and compare that to what they've heard or their own experiences.
My blog is a website, photographic journey, and record of thoughts compiled while living in Hoi An, Vietnam. My usual home is Brisbane, Australia. I am keen to get involved in the local community here in Hoi An and do what I can to help if my skills can be of use. I welcome contact from anyone and everyone who has an interest in Vietnam generally or Hoi An specifically. Read my blog and join me on the journey!
