Two years ago, when I first went on an overnight cruise aboard a junk ship with a girl friend in Ha Long Bay, I was so amazed with the experience. Ha Long Bay is very beautiful, the green waters, the numerous islands, the magnificent caves and lagoons. I remember telling to myself "this would make a great honeymoon" and I told myself I would come back there when I meet Mr. Right.

 

So here I am now again, and this time, with the love of my life. It was my hubby's first time to see Ha Long Bay and experience the junk ship cruise. We had a great time. It felt like we were on a floating paradise, with nothing to worry about. The only thoughts that were running in our minds were what would be the menu for our next meal, we wonder how it would be presented, what kind of wine are we going to drink tonight, would we want to go kayaking, how come there are no jellyfishes this time unlike the last time, will we see wild monkeys at the lagoon, what does this island's shape look like, how about the other one, would we really catch a squid at night...

 

Ahhhh, it was like being in a very good dream, so relaxing. I felt like a princess with my prince....ok, that's too cheesy now so I better end it here, hehehe.
