A Travellerspoint blog

Please Sir, can I have some more!?

sunny 29 °C

The beach town of Mui Ne has grown on us pretty quickly and we are taking a little time out from out travels. Nat has found a great instructor and we are happy to hang out here until she is up and kite surfing like a pro. Today was originally our day to move on to the town of Hoi An, but with the weather as it is, we decided to hang in for some more wind and today we were rewarded. After a good start last week, Monday and Tuesday were very light wind so we had a few days off. The nice part about a day off is that we hang out at the beach bar, hoping that things will improve. Today our prayers were answered and the wind filled in again giving us a great day. Nat had some funky food the other day so was still recovering from food poisoning as she wrestled her kite and board in the gusty winds. She did a great job though and should be riding tomorrow or Friday at the latest.

Before tourism arrived here, this town was a fishing village and the locals that aren't working in tourism still spend their mornings harvesting the sea. The restaurants cater to a range of tourists from the masses of Russian sun seekers to the international crowd of kiters with a range of Vietnamese, Thai and French cuisine. The fish is really fresh and I still can't get enough of the noodle soups that are served everywhere.

As we are spending so much time on the water, we don't have a lot of stories right now of much else. There are some amazing sand dunes near here and some really rural areas that are worth exploring, but we wouldn't know as we haven't gone outside walking distance from our hotel in case the wind picks up and we miss a session. One night Nat got a manicure/pedicure that she was really happy with for a whopping four dollars and we've both had a few massages that can be as expensive as $15 if you get the ninety minute version.

For now, we have booked another week...we'll see what happens next Tuesday when it is almost time to move on. I wouldn't be surprised if we were here for Christmas.

I just flipped (enviously) through all of your pictures and posts. I can't believe this amazing trip you're on. You are really making me want to sell everything, pick up and go. For now, I'll live vicariously through you two....xoxo KK
