we headed out early saturday morning on a bus for ha long bay. very fun bus ride down actually - i kicked max's butt in connect four like a million times. :)
when we arrived in ha long bay, we got on a boat to take us to our boat, the indochine. as we pulled up to our boat, seriously, i was close to tears. it was SOOOO awesome!!! check out the pictures of it to see for yourself. it was seriously so gorgeous. the ship was gorgeous, the rooms were gorgeous & the BATHROOMS were gorgeous! we defintiely felt so spoiled - it was great.
we headed up to the top deck & when i got a gin & tonic and was laying on the lounge chair overlooking ha long bay with music playing in the background, i literally did tear up.
the whole trip was perfect...we ended up having 1/2 a day on saturday, spending saturday night, and then coming back on sunday. at first i felt like we could have stayed on there for a week...but it honestly turned out to be the perfect amount of time.
one of my highlights was going swimming! the water was definitely a bit sketchy, but i couldn't be in ha long bay & NOT go in. i convinced max to swim to shore with me. it was so fun (although max says he almost drowned). anyway....then a group of us hiked up this tall mountain & had incredible views of the bay!
other highlights were all the amazing meals they served, the yummy bottle of champagne we had, chilling on the deck & just appreciating the amazing surroundings!!!
as i said, the perfect r & r weekend!
