Meet nature and its secret...

Today's post will be slightly different from the usual outfit or fashion related post. so here goes...
Last week I went for a quick getaway to Hanoi, Vietnam. it was my first time there and I must say that it was such a cultural experience. the city itself was nothing grand. there were practically no skyscrapers in sight. however, even though the city may have reflected such simplicity, it showed that it's most certainly rich in character. our itinerary there included visiting a bunch of temples, museum, water puppet show, a taste of some Pho and a trip to Ha Long Bay. the last destination has got to be the highlight of my entire trip. it took more or less a 3 hour drive to get to this UNESCO world heritage site but it was definitely well worth it. the view was indescribably stunning. I also went inside their enormous caves which contains massive stalactites and stalagmites, as much as I hate to say this but their cave turned out to be more amazing compared to the ones i've visited before in Slovenia called the Skojcan Caves. ooohh the beauty of nature :)
here's a peek of Vietnam shot from my lens...
