My youngest brother teaches English in Hong Kong so I went over to visit him along with my other two brothers. I am the oldest. Bryant is the next oldest, on the left of the photo, and Clark is the next oldest, next to me, and Marcus is the youngest. Between me and Marcus there is a seven year difference.
The next day we rented some Honda 125s and started our ride to the coast.
The sites were amazing once we got onto CatBa Island. The roads were great too. Most of the mainland of Vietnam where we rode was flat and farms and small towns, but CatBa had hills and curves and great water views.
One of the best meals of the trip was our final dinner in Hanoi. We always ordered several dishes and split it and this was amazing. We met someone, KB from South Korea, while in CatBa and told him about our hostel in Hanoi so he stayed there the same night as us and we got to learn more about him.
Ant-Man and the Wasp ride where you shoot targets with a laser gun. The jungle cruise was faster, but LOTS of fire and water. My favorite ride was the Mystic Manor. It is a play on the Haunted Mansion, but it has a monkey opening up a magical relic that makes other artifacts come to life. REALLY cool!
I missed these three with all my heart and was so excited to get home and see them. I have some spoiling to do for all of them, especially Dawn. She had the kids all to herself with occasional help from family and I know it wasn't easy. So grateful for this once-in-a-life opportunity to see Marcus with my other brothers and do some exploring.
