I read a book this week that made me desperate to travel again and I wanted to share it with you. I say ‘desperate to travel again’ as I write this from the beach in Fiji! I know – I’m pathetic, and you hate me!
I had an advance copy of Vietnam: 100 Unusual Travel Tips sent to me by Barbara from The Dropout Diaries fame. You remember her and Vu – they’re the ones that took us on those AMAZING food tours when we were in Vietnam.
I settled down to have a read and the more I read, the more I chuckled over some of the more obscure facts. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this book but I had high hopes because I knew it had taken several years to reach completion.
And wasn’t I pleasantly surprised? I found myself giggling over some of the details that other guides leave out. The Vietnamese obsession with ear cleaning for one – there was even a picture! As I pored over the tips, I was reminded of our trips to Vietnam and the wonderful time we’d had. Even though we’ve spent over two months in Vietnam now, there were still loads of things I learned from reading Barb and Vu’s guide. I soon found myself pulling up the photos on my computer of our most recent trip to Vietnam.
So I thought I’d let you all know that the book has finally been released on Amazon. The Kindle edition is a steal, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that a paperback has been created for those of us who still love to carry a little travel guide in our backpack. (If you’ve got Kindle Unlimited you can actually read this book for free too – BARGAIN!)
Lucky for me I have no more spare holiday days that I can take at work – otherwise, I just might have booked myself a flight to Vietnam so I could relive some of the fun moments I read about in this book.
This book isn’t your boring, everyday guide to Vietnam. It’s a delicious assortment of essential facts and fascinating insights into a country that is wildly fun to visit.
