This week’s photo challenge prompt was ‘wanderlust’, and what better way to celebrate this than a throwback to my adventure in Sapa, Vietnam! I will be writing a blog series on my travels to Vietnam very soon, but here is a sneak preview. I just couldn’t help myself considering the prompt this week!
Wanderlust- Misty Mountains
The mountains of Sapa are breathtaking; majestic towers of green rising way above the misty clouds. In fact, if you love the feeling of freedom, fresh air and complete peace and harmony, this is your haven.
The town of Sapa is situated in the North Western region of Vietnam. The area consists of buildings on the steep mountain sides, a beautiful market square and quaint coffee shops, overlooking stunning valleys and rice terraces. A trip to Vietnam is simply not complete without a visit to this wonderful town, and the small hill-tribe villages around it.
Wander out of the town and consequently you will be greeted by the most stunning, picturesque views. You can enjoy daytime treks while resting at home-stays at night to really experience the beauty of the place. The locals here are incredibly friendly, dishing up home-cooked feasts and rice wine and karaoke to get the party started afterwards. Finally, you can finish off a long trek with a refreshing dip in the calm rock pools.
What photo sums ‘wanderlust’ up for you? I’d love to see!
