The Clips and Trips blog was put together in preparation for our leaving the U.S. on an indefinite world travel adventure which started around August of 2009 and returned us home in December of 2012. If you want to see where it all began, read our mission statement from before we left.

Nha Trang, Vietnam

From Ho Chi Minh City, we took a train to one of Vietnam's most famous beaches, Nha Trang. It's a much smaller town and a slower paced lifestyle to match. Walking along the streets didn't cause as much anxiety as it did in Ho Chi Minh City.

The weather is much cooler and very windy right at the beach. It's definitely a much welcome change to the hot and humid weather we've gotten accustomed to in the last four months.

Vietnamese food has continued to impress us. There are many beautiful, reasonably priced restaurants here.

Our additiction to Vietnamese coffee has started here. Typcially, coffee is served with a metal individual coffee filter/french press that sits on top of a cup. The coffee slowly drips into the cup with a little bit of gooey, sweet condensed milk at the bottom.


  1. Where are the images of the beautiful delicious foods?! You know I'm trying to live vicariously through you two...haha! I'm glad you are at a cleaner locale. "Yung buhangin na mapinong mapino" right?? haha. Be safe Ate and Eric!

  2. Hi Pammy and Eric!
    Thinking about you this Christmastime! Hope you are well and having fun in the sun.
    Miss you xoxo Susan

  3. Eric, am I to believe that you are now drinking coffee?

    I understand that Vietnamese coffee is very strong. Someone I know says that he drinks one cup over two or so hours in the morning.

    Ok, I'm off to fill the French press--thanks for the posts, Eric and Pam...

  4. No, I'm still not much of a coffee drinker. But I enjoyed sampling these. They are indeed strong, but also contain a generous helping of condensed milk to sweeten things up.

  5. sounds very yummy actually! We're missing you this Christmas, but glad you're having such a fabulous adventure!
