Hoi An beauty issues, the sequel

After I wrote this post a little while ago, lots of people suggested coconut oil as a cure-all for my beauty woes. Well, I have procured said oil and will write another blog post once it has worked its miracles. For the record, this is a 250ml bottle, cost was 75,000VND or just under $4. If it does everything people claim it can, BARGAIN!

Ferry to Cam Kim Island near Hoi An

This is a photographic story of our journey to Cam Kim Island near Hoi An.

We caught the ferry to the island, then rode our bicycles around.

It was a lovely morning out and the island is beautiful.

We went with Gary, Judy and Chris – thanks for a great day!
