Today I’d like to invite you to go on a trip to Vietnam to see some exotic fruit carvings.

My nephew Jesse and his fiancee were recently traveled to Vietnam and had some pictures of amazing fruit carvings to show me.

Although I’m sure that seeing fruit carvings wasn’t the main high point of their trip, I’m glad they thought of me!

Actually, it was the 3 day “junk boat” tour through Halong Bay that was the real highlight.

Take a look at their photos and go on a mini-vacation without having to leave your home!

Halong Bay in Vietnam is known for its almost 2000 beautiful limestone islands. My nephew and his fiancé were able to experience this natural wonder, up close and personal, on a 3 day “junk boat” cruise.

What came next was a total surprise to my nephew Jesse. Jesse’s fiancee had planned the boat tour section of their trip to Vietnam and did not reveal her entire plan.

Their junk boat anchored at one of the limestone islands and their tour group were lead on a twilight a walk. They were guided into a cave with a path lined with lighted candles.
