Weekend in Nha Trang or Thao's Last Sail before the Veil.

Introducing Thao.

Our beautiful bride-to-be and our reason to head out of the city to the lovely beach town, Nha Trang. Located about 430 km (267 mi) from Saigon, it is a perfect place for a girls' weekend.

And because we were at the beach, we decided to go for a nautical theme, complete with captain hats, nauti goodie bags, and messages in a bottle for the lovely couple.

But perhaps the most nauti thing we did was spend the day on a private boat cruise on the South {China} Sea, drinking, dancing, and smiling in the sunshine.


Right before sunset, we headed back to shore and got ready for the evening which included a photo shoot, a nice dinner at Sailing Club (I recommend the salmon with noodles), and some dancing at the clubs.

 Day two was spent recovering and reclining at Louisiane Brewhouse's beachfront.

And with coffee, Vietnamese food, and swing time back at Sailing Club.

It was a relaxing and beautiful weekend, and although we were celebrating Thao and her upcoming nuptials, I think it was a bit of a last hoorah for all of us. Several of the ladies present will be heading to new places when the school year finishes, changing the friendships and sisterhood we've created during our time in Southeast Asia.  Of course I wish them all the best in their new adventures, yet, it is hard to ignore that HCMC will become a little less special without their presence.
