... photo shoot on the island and we watched as the bride got her dress wet and sandy! Also on the trip was a crazy lady who insisted her partner take a lot of photos of her throwing up sand, rolling around on the floor and kicking the waves. She was also very entertaining to people watch. Towards the end of our time Lindsay and Emma went for a walk to find the monkeys and discovered a few of them in a tree further up the beach, eating and playing with each other. ...
... nothing compared to home) and wet, so to come to Halong Bay and get beautiful sunshine is really nice, we can also see for miles.
Our boat was a little disappointing at first, it seemed so beautiful in the photos we were shown, and when we arrived it looked like the same boat, just quite a few years older, and in need of another lick of paint. However, we were shown into a great cabin with a huge window and a view out over the ...
