I'm going to Vietnam
05.04.2013 - 09.05.2013
Yes that is correct - I'm going to Vietnam !! Never thought I'd be saying that phrase.
I'll be heading to Hanoi on April 5th to spend 5 weeks on a business trip. This opportunity came up last week so I'm busy trying to prepare for being gone from Murrells Inlet SC for 5 weeks.
Booked the plane ticket today so it feels real now. This will be my first overseas trip- only time I've been out of the USA is on cruises to Caribbean. Nothing like making my first trip something completely different.
Not looking forward to spending 28 hours getting to Vietnam. Longest flight I've ever had is 9 hours to Maui. This will be 28 hours total travel time. Myrtle Beach SC to Atlanta GA and then 15 hours to South Korea and then 4 1/2 hours to Hanoi. Basically leave early on a Friday and arrive late on a Saturday.
Since I'll be gone so long I thought I'd try my first travel blog so that I can share my trip with family and friends.
