Hello Heather. I enjoyed reading your blogg. I just got back from Thailand and Cambodia. After the tour I realized I could have done it on my own. I would like to experience Vietnam. I am older and my backpacking days are long gone. I also am not rich. However I would like to spend a month or so exploring the country. I'm looking to start some correspondence with someone who lives there to learn the inns and outs. If you would like to help me figure out if my plans seem reasonable please contact me. Kind Regards, Dayna by the way I live in Florida
