Venturing Vietnam – Dalat

Reise / October 7, 2015

Next stop in Vietnam was Dalat. Dalat was cold and rainy – just how we like it! After all, we have both roots in countries with very moist soil. Even the damp feeling you have sitting inside was identical to what you get from Britain’s single-glazed homes. I know I’m not really selling Dalat here, but believe it or not it was actually a really refreshing break from our otherwise extremely hot travel destinations.

Mon, the royal pug, made sure that we had a good time in Dalat. He did also manage to get Toby and I to reopen our discussion of getting a pug. You see, Toby has as long as I have known him had a massive need for a pug in his life. His reason is, “A pug is the key to my happiness; their faces are so retarded that I will always have something to laugh about!”. My answer is still no, but Mon did manage to steal my heart.

Drinking warm coffee and eating sweet cookies are just so much better when in hand with gloomy weather. Try Bicycle Up Coffee Bar for a delicious curry for lunch or The Muse cafe for a lazy coffee break when you just want to do some people watching.

Moving on, literally in our forest rollercoaster, we got out of the city and down we went. The risk manager (aka me) was busy braking to keep the rather rusty bullet on its rails, when Mr. Toby (of course) had to continuously crash into me. The story of our relationship…

Toby is literally a pain in the ass 😤😡 New blog post! #painintheass #rollercoaster #datanla #dalat #vietnam #boyfriend #annoying

I think I have a thing for waterfalls. There is something so seductive about feeling the rough water streaming down your skin, while you are doing your best not to be pulled under by the power of the waterfall. If it wasn’t for our tight travel schedule I would probably still be sitting on top of the cliff of Pongour Waterfall, letting my feet fall down with the water. Time to move that blue bum of yours, Renate!


Best Regards

If you want a pug to laugh at its face Toby, you can always invest in a mirror… GC
