Travelogue: Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

Travelogue: Ha Long Bay / See and Savour My love for Vietnam happened the very first time I visited Ha Long Bay. Floating in the middle of the bay, my mind was filled with a sense of calm.

Travel Guide: Hoi An, Vietnam

Hoi An, Vietnam / See and Savour Hoi An it sits along the central coast of Vietnam and is a city with ancient history, traditional architecture. Now the city is a popular tourist destination – and I can totally see why. Hoi An is small but it’s a great walking town filled with colorful walls and people.

Travel Guide: Saigon, Vietnam

Lunch Lady - Saigon, Vietnam / See and Savour Vietnam has such a special place in my heart.

Travelogue: The Mexican Riviera // Mazatlan

Travelogue: The Mexican Rivieria // Mazatlan / See and Savour We arrived in Mazatlan just before the sunrise. Having the balcony was one of my favorite things onboard our ship.

Before heading out for the day, we enjoyed a light breakfast on board. We planned to do the

Weekend Scenes: Inside Yosemite National Park

Evenings in Yosemite National Park / See & Savour In early October we headed up to Yosemite National Park for a quick weekend trip. I’ve been to Yosemite National Park before but never camped inside the park. We booked our campsite at Lower Pines Campground six months in advance but it was worth the wait. The convenience of being centrally located and the ability to take a shuttle everywhere was nice. You should plan early my friends! Read the campground reservation site carefully and mark your calendars
