We were fortunate enough to visit Hanoi, Vietnam in the middle of the peach blossom season. Almost every shop, hotel, building has a beautiful spray of colourful blossoms to ensure good luck for the New Year (Tet) festive season. The top photo of this post is one of my favourite photographs from Hanoi, I love the bright pink agains the golden glow of the early morning light – it makes it easy to forget the shock we had from the cold weather in Hanoi, coming from the much warmer climes of Indonesia we had gotten so used to. The blossoms soon faded away as we headed away from the North of Vietnam, but the warmth of the South was a pleasantly welcome.
