Sapa

Apologies to anyone who was expecting a post last week, I was on holiday in Vietnam. I know I have already posted about Mui Ne and Saigon (twice) but this time I was exploring northern Vietnam and with trips to Sapa, Hanoi and Halong Bay I should have some exciting pictures over the coming weeks.  I’m going to kick things off with my pictures from Sapa.
