Ok I know travelling is all about immersing yourself in the culture, finding unusual places, embarking on great discoveries, trekking and all that jazz but it’s been a month since we’ve seen some proper sun.
Heading for Vietnam in January? clearly the worse decision Ive made so far. It’s their winter you know? We have had constant clouds and miserableness for so long that I forgot what the sun looks like.
So we decided to skip the French Alps looking town that is Dalat, and head straight for the beach of Mui Ne. Don’t judge me.
On our first day sunbathing I got a bit over excited and unfortunately this resulted in some serious sunburn..
I worked so hard to get a base tan in Thailand and after 3 weeks here it’s ruined me and I’m back to square one. Emotional times.
Anyway, this is the lovely Mui Ne Beach..
Mui ne is popular for kite surfing – I gather that’s because the beach is ridiculously windy; so much so that it’s hard to lay and sunbathe because the sand attacks you.
As a result of this, the waves are also quite violent, nonetheless it’s really fun to run into the sea and jump into them. Just make sure your bikini is done up tight or it will fall off!
We stayed at the Backpackers village for a night and made use of their pool for most of our time in Mui Ne.
Just wait for my sand dunes post, one of my travelling highlights so far!
