What’s the obvious major plus-point of having a Vietnamese girlfriend? That’s right – plenty of cool holidays to the other side of the world.

I had barely got over the jet lag from Hong Kong and I was already on another 16 hour flight back to Ho Chi Minh City.

I’m going to put it out there – Vietnam has never been an obvious place for me to want to visit. Now that I’ve been? I just can’t wait to go back.

Vietnam is hot. Very hot. In fact, it was so hot that I started to leave my camera bag at the apartment more and more. For reasons unknown to man, I decided to bring all of my Nikon gear AND my Fujifilm. This was a great idea for all of about 5 minutes when I realised I was never going to use my D750.

The light was absolutely beautiful. There’s a permanent diffusion in Vietnam that just takes the harshness off the direct midday sun. My only regret is not photographing more! Although we did manage to get a sneaky feature from Tens Sunglasses.
