Mr and Mrs H head for the hills...



If you read my last post...
you will know that I have been thinking on a cottage by the sea in Maine
and a farmhouse in New Hampshire. You may be wondering why I am
now showing a village in the northern region of Vietnam.
Have we finally found our home away from home?

'A Village in Sapa' by Roland Renaud


Did we decide to call it quits, 
buy a jeep and head for the hills?



love this jeep!

In our dreams....in fact, the village is a painting...
which arrived wrapped in a big red bow, inside this jeep.

Surprise!

Mr. and Mrs. H are celebrating 26 years of adventurous, 
marital bliss today.
It's our anniversary...so I can say bliss. :)

I spotted the painting a few months back 
and have been regularly admiring it ever since..
It speaks to our travelling life...I was hoping Mr. H agreed. 
Sweet man that he is, he did.

I have written about Mr. H many times..










Always on my mind and in my heart.
 ...ah.. the things we do for love.


Happy Anniversary Mr. H!...
safe travels back from Hong Kong. 

Mrs. H xxx


With that...
I send warm wishes to one and all from Saigon 
for a wonderful weekend!

    The painting has a magical feel to it. One can almost feel the mist and freshness of the air.
