I had a tear in my eye reading about your goodbyes to Ian, I really hope it isnít long before you get to see him again xx
Iím so pleased youíve enjoyed it, hard to realise we were there a year ago this week. Iím glad we went last year, it would have been so disappointing to have arranged it for this year only to cancel it all 😢

I felt ashamed of my previous opinions about the food as we all enjoyed it far more than we expected to. Iíve even cooked a few Vietnamese inspired dishes since weíve returned and Georgia has been to a Vietnamese restaurant in Bristol with her friends as she loved the food so much.

We keep in touch with Ian often and itís nice now as we can imagine where he lives more (although he has now changed apartments and moved in with Claudia in a very nice part of the city) Itís good to know heís happy and settled with his life but we do miss him and itís been very difficult this year with him so far away. 😢 The leaving him was very hard last year, and made me miss him even more when we returned, but Iím so pleased that we did go and spend the time with him and I do hope we can do it again one year.

Iím a bit late to the party but Iíve just read your full trip report and really enjoyed it. I would also have been nervous but it sounds like it was a great trip.

Thanks for reading, Iím so pleased you enjoyed it. It really is a wonderful country with so much to see and do, well worth visiting if you get the chance

Update on Ian: Heís still in Vietnam which is pretty much closed for anyone entering from overseas at the moment, he could leave but would find it very difficult to return. Heís happy there with Claudia and they now have a kitten as well as their dog. Heís teaching in a different school with smaller classes and he teaches the children English, maths, science and social studies (mix of geography and history) all in the English language which he really enjoys. We miss him still, but he rings several times a week and we chat to Claudia often too as we feel she is a welcome member of our family now.
