Off to Hoi An

Due to Harry being simply brilliant we are about to depart on our 3 hour bus journey to Hoi An in luxury!!! We have managed to secure our own private minibus!!! The hotel in Hoi An is also 3 star so we are all rather excited at the prospect of even more luxury than what we have experienced so far!

Breakfast was good, all are well rested and everyone is excited about going shopping in Hoi An for the suits and other clothing and also the beach - though we are only allowed on the beach bit and not in the water due to the British Council regulations about students and the sea!

The weather is hot hot hot (I am sure that was a song title...Mr Nicholls any help on that one?)

Catch up with you all in Hoi An.

Love to all from Lucy, Jack and Weeksey xxx


  1. Dear Mum (Mrs Parry)

    Any chance you can make me lasagne when I get home??? Missing you xx


  2. Dear Three Kings

    We are going to Top Nosh when I get home.

  3. Dear Family (Gilson's)

    I am disappointed at the lack of comments on the blog, please can I have Spag Bol with twirly pasta and not spagetti with lots of grated cheese and garlic bread upon my return. Lots of love and kisses,

    Lauren xx

  4. Dear Ffion,
    Yes of course will have lasagne waiting for when you get home. Hope you are enjoying the R & R part of the trip and that the typhoon doesn't affect your visits too much. Now that the trek is over, you'll be able to look back and realise what a wonderful experience it was, mud and sore feet and all!! Enjoy the last bit, best wishes to all, love Parry clan and Uncle Gordon XX

    Luxury hotel & shopping, that sounds more like Lucy's ideal holiday!! Glad you survived the night bus and sorry to hear it wasn't purple. Enjoy Hoi An and make the most of your last week. Can't believe the time has now gone so quickly.
    Have fun & enjoy the sun (if there is any!)
    Lots of love The Bryant Bunch

    Well Good Morning Vietnam, yes indeed, let's start today's set with "Hot,Hot,Hot" by DJs Pat and Mick or by Arrow who had a bigger hit with it when it was reissued in '94. If you like your Hot, Hot,Hot!!!" with exclamation marks then we can include the hit by the Cure. Now, keeping with the heat vibe, we move on to Glen Frey's (ex of the Eagles) hit "The Heat is On" before getting into the "Heat of the Moment" by Asia. As you've now been away for quite and while let's go out with one for the headbangers, it's Rainbow's "Since You've Been Gone"

    Love & Respect

    Glad to hear that you had such luxury with the bus and now even a private minibus!!! Someone must be passing something to have such luxuries??? Hope the shopping experience was great and you all managed to make a purchase. You haven't mentioned wet weather but it must have been brilliant to get to the beach and clean up??? Enjoy the rest of your well earned holiday.
    Love to all, from Jacks Nannie and Gramps xxx
