... were full of energy, dance moves and a whole lot of beer. Drinking games were introduced during the night followed by skinny dipping in the early hours of the morning. The next day it was our groups turn to embark on a journey through Halong Bay using the Castaways booze cruise. Shotgunning beer for breakfast would definitely not be last time we did that that day. The cruise was great. Halong Bay is beautiful and we also ...
