Halong Bay: Doing Exactly What I Wanted to Do!

 

Sitting on my computer in University I would browse through articles like the 100 most beautiful places in the world, look at pictures of places like Halong Bay, and say to myself “I am for sure going there.”

And why not?  2.5 years of traveling from place to place and my opportunity finally came to visit Vietnam and take a trip to one of the very places that initially inspired my traveling habits, from across the world.

I know Halong Bay has been photographed a million times over and people have looked at countless pictures of the place.  These however are my real pictures that I took with my own camera representing more that just a beautiful place.  Though they don’t compare to the real sites, sounds, and experiences, the pictures represent a dream come true, a credible form of proof to show that dreams are possible and if you pursue what you want, and do what you say, you will surely succeed!

As I sipped my tea on the top deck of the Chinese junk, peering at the surreal sun setting over the gorgeous Halong Bay in Vietnam, I realized that I was doing exactly what I wanted to do.

It’s great to hear you’re doing what you want to be doing and I have no doubt that you’ll remain on this path now that you’re realized what you’ve actually achieved…

    looks beautiful! I’ll be there in a month-ish, trying to find a cheap but good junk- would you recommend the one you went on? X

      Cool Tams, yes I would recommend the junk I went on. There are loads of different prices and people tell you different deals and qualities. In the end, my boat was quite nice and the price was alright to go with it. Hope you have an awesome time too!

    Stunning place and photos, Mark! I totally know what you mean by experience the beauty is not the same with just looking at photograph, no matter the quality is. It’s about being one with the location we are in. I love to take pictures to capture the moment, but the pictures can only tell a little portion about the moment itself.
