It’s been a while since I’ve linked to a guest post I’ve written on another blog, so I thought it was time to rectify this and show you something I wrote for the excellent Multicultural Kid Blogs website. I contributed to their “Fun Facts” series: 10 Fun Facts about Vietnam.
I lived in Vietnam, in Hanoi (the capital city), for 4.5 years in the early to mid-90s and fell in love with this amazing country. It was a time of great change for the country, emerging out of international isolation and into a fledgling market economy. It was also one of the most special periods in my life not least because I met my (French) husband there. A couple of years ago, almost exactly 20 years after we left, we went back to Vietnam with our children (a tween and teen at the time) for a fabulous family holiday, introducing them to this dynamic, colourful, noisy, busy, crowded, charming, gorgeous country (with amazing food!)
Inspired by this trip, and of course my time living in the country, I put together a post on 10 fun facts about Vietnam. Click through to read it in full.
