We've done a lot of travelling in the past 6 months. In December we took a cruise and saw Patagonia - Argentina, Cape Horn, Chile...the Andes Mountains, and Penguins. The cruise was rather eventful. In addition to all of the above, our ship crashed into a barge carrying luxury cars and we were stranded at sea for several days as a result. In fact, we're fortunate we didn't sink because the accident created a huge, gaping, JAWs-like hole in the bow of our ship. . . all part of the adventure.
In April we travelled again. This time we visited Indochina...land tour this time (we weren't ready for another ocean sail after the last fiasco). This was fantastic. We got to visit some of the Natural Wonders of the world. After visiting Bangkok, Thailand, one of these Natural Wonders was our adventures in Angkor Wat in Cambodia. WOW! ...fantastic ruins of beautiful temples in the middle of the equatorial jungles. This was where Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was filmed. From here we visited Viet Nam. Since my husband was a Viet Nam vet, he was anxious to see the country again. We travelled North from the Mekong Delta, Saigon and on to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Of course we had to experience it all and we got to crawl through some of those tunnels. Then we travelled further north to Hue, DaNang, China Beach, Hoi An, and then on to Hanoi. Hanoi is a beautiful city. It is very French in appearance. We loved it. Then we visited another Natural Wonder - Ha Long Bay. Wow oh Wow! I took some great photos on our trip and am anxious to get started in painting the sights we visited.
