Ruta & Algirdas
Vietnam

We're Ruta & Algirdas - storytellers, world travelers, photography and filmmaking enthusiasts. Our best days are spent admiring planet Earth - exploring, tasting, breathing in all it has to offer. Now, after a year spent living van life in New Zealand, we're enjoying the hustle and bustle of Vietnam. Packing bags and embarking on an adventure is easier than it may seem - just have the courage.

  • How can you visit Hanoi without visiting that famous #trainstreet ?! šŸ˜…
  • Mornings like today is when I miss that cold, extreamly strong and unreasonably sweet vietnamese coffee the most! #cafesuada

And this was one of the sweetest ladies ever making it by a traditional sock method. Even there was no place, she still invited us in and suddenly two tiny little stools appeared from somewhere so just we could enjoy our coffee sitting down in the shadow, resting from the Saigon's heat!
  • Every little alley in Saigon has its' own secrets. This one actually takes you to one of few remaining apartment cafe buildings. Finding the entrance might be quite a mystery to solve but refreshing iced vietnamese coffee at each of the different cafes there will be more than a reward!
  • For me Saigon is a city that takes time to fall in love with. You may be shocked as well as excited by it on your first days but soon enough it gets tiring, annoying and overpowering with all the heat, mess, traffic and constant hustle. Spend more than a couple of days there and you may start hating it, but it is a thin line between love and hate. I found it took me a month to actually fall in love with all its beauty and its mess, all the flavours, smells, secret corners, people and a different pace of life. Saigon is stunning!
Saigon, I miss you so much!
  • That's once again the previously mentioned abandoned Franciscan Mission in #Dalat and here's the doggo that had as scared for a moment before becoming our buddy for a day! ā€¢

  • That's one of the staircases inside the so-called #CrazyHouse in #Dalat city, Vietnam. While it sure looks like an interesting architectural and artistic object, I guess I would suggest to skip it in case you're a traveler on a tight budget. 
It sure is loved by tourists but for the same reason might not be the kind of attraction that travelers are seeking when looking for authenticity. 
You sure can make a bunch of fun photos out there and while I enjoyed it, it is still not my kind of cup of tea squeezing in with a bunch of tourists on narrow passages trying to wait in line to take a peek inside one of many rooms. By the way, you can actually book and stay inside this house as at a hotel but I don't think it is much fun having crowds of people swinging around trying to get a look of the room you're staying in. Anyway, it sure is a cheap price for an object to visit for a tourist coming just at 2 EUR per person but it can be kind of expensive if you're a backpacker on a tight daily budget of just 8 EUR for everything (like we were). Anyway, we sure enjoyed some cool photos we took out there but if I had to choose again I would probably have skipped it. šŸ™„ ā€¢
