This is a beautiful place to visit if ever in Ireland, it is just roughly 40 minutes from the capital city & so worth the drive.

This was a beautiful image to capture. It was almost sunset & the duck way just playing away by itself, doing all its little tricks, oblivious to my presence which worked out very well in my favour, for the shot.

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

Ha Long Bay by Siobhan Cleary @ http://www.siobhanmariephotography.com

This was one of my favourite trips to date. I remember the drive to the boats was exhausting the heat was unbelievable.

On the way, I got to really see how Vietnamese people lived, all the young kids going to school on dirt roads, but, they seemed happy with what they had.

We drove past paddie fields & pearl farms which really got me thinking, because, I seen the older women out in the fields, gathering the rice. Now, when I’m having rice dinner, I’m very grateful, because I know someone has to work very hard to put it on my plate.

When we arrived, my initial thought was “OMG” we have to sleep on this Junker for two days. There was me, my sis & a friend, when we boarded, we were shown our rooms & given a brief explanation of what we would be doing.

That night we had a lovely dinner with great people & a stop off at a beach & plenty of fun on the boat. It really is amazing what can happen when you put a group of people together who don’t know each other. Although, I’ve never seen them again the memories will last forever.

The next day we went & done some kayaking around the area, visited the caves, the scenery was beautiful & here we got to see how the people live. They are water people spend all their time on the water & get sick on land 🙂

I will always remember before we headed back to the mainland, I sat out on a balcony writing my postcards, it was the first time I really experience unaware mindfulness. I just sat staring out, the peace I felt was unbelievable, I had never experienced it before & now I would be lost without it. If you don’t know how to be mindful or meditate, learn, its amazing.

It’s one of my top places from my travels & would highly recommend not missing it on a trip to Vietnam.

Out of the whole experience I learned how to relax, understand & just enjoy every moment. Oh by the, the junker, was perfect for the trip, it was just a matter of appreciating & enjoying everything about it 🙂
