Nha Trang!

Finally....Beach Time!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday night we boarded a sleeper bus to take us up to Nha Trang. Nine hours and very little sleep later...we arrive at our destination. Traveling by sleeper bus is definitely a cheaper way to travel in Vietnam-however it is not the most comfortable form of transportation. Even though you can recline your chair- they are incredibly hard to sleep on and allow little space to spread out on.

At least there was a beautiful sunrise to wake up to :)

Day 1: Beach time! 

After scouting out some prime chairs we had our first day of R&R since the girls arrived. 

Day 2: We rented two motorbikes to drive up to Ba Ho waterfalls. Kudos to the girls for handling a bike with ease. Jess stepped up to the plate and drove their bike (I still am not able to drive one even after living here for almost a year..oops)

The falls were just outside of the city and took us about an hour to drive there, the scenery was breathtaking. 

On the way we saw some local boys jumping into a nearby river and I took the chance to take some pictures. The boys were excited to have their photo taken and gave me lots of material to work with. 

Once we parked our newly rented motorbikes we hiked about 45 minutes to get to the actual waterfalls.

After hiking in the hot and humid weather the prospect of jumping into the cold water was impossible to resist...even though the jump WAS a little high :)

After swimming for a while we drove back to the beautiful city of Nha Trang. I wish we could have had more time in this fun beach destination.
