vlogging never goes to well before coffee so now we're about two hours into our four-hour drive to halong bay because we are going on an overnight cruise with signature cruises these people after watching some of our videos a lot of people might consider us budget travelers but I like to think of it as like money savvy travelers so we save money in some areas so we can splurge on other memorable experiences so we stayed at the Hilton for free using points and now we're splurging on this overnight cruise because halong bay is a unesco world heritage site and it's supposed to be amazing I didn't know that we're going to be doing this for the next two days and we can't wait time to get back on the bus it took us a little under four hours to get to a halong bay I have to say I was kind of dreading that ride because we've had a lot of bad long ban rides but that was definitely the nicest van that we've been transported in and the ride was flat and smooth unlike some of the crazy curvy mountain roads that we've been on in the past few months so we made it and I think the plan is to get on a small boat that is then going to take us to the cruise ship this is awesome whoa look at this view first things first have to open all the windows is crazy oh we have a balcony no wait – there's rose I think we need to book like oh five nine cruise this so nice this is the first balcony that we've had on our entire trip yay what a better place to have your first balcony and I just love being outside I might just sleep out here tonight hey you look pretty comfy whoa care of you what's in the bathroom yet we have like our own private hot tub toilet even has buttons like the one in Tokyo oh don't spray me Nate you have to leave the balcony for a minute we have to eat lunch oh come on I love to eat look at the rocks this is amazing first of the season málaga I do not think we're gonna be disappointed with the food on this trip I'm a saved as to get much fresher than that I see food here that comes from there thank you very much I have no clue how to eat this I think I'll just love this very like twice a while and cilantro oh my people are so perfect I've heard some people suck the heads of these okay I really butchered that one that was not papaya salad we've been wanting to try Vietnamese spring rolls since we got here and we haven't made one friend up I assume I use both mmm Thai or Vietnamese spring rolls and you can do these are really enjoy that looks amazing I think we just got to the main course according to the minion seabass sprinkled and tamarins all served a fragrant rice and vegetable it's really been kinga wrong with tamarind sauce we need to take a food go on yeah we have 20 minutes for a nap before you get to the fishing village this is quickly turning into all those times I can't set the camera down the views just keep getting better we just finished about a 30-minute sail I set outside and enjoy the views and to enjoy those views on the way to the fishing village we just got to a floating fishing village we're going to get rode around on a rowboat to see the village and then after that we're going to a pearl farm I think they grow pearls is someone here to China this trio I speak out very fast the south is emotional McVerry very nice pole into color so white and yellow Oh oh very beautiful at the boat ride through the floating fishing village was the most calm and quiet thirty minutes of my life you could only hear the oars dipping in the water was like you felt guilty for talking ruining it for everybody else so cool it was nothing like this bracket that's going on behind us right now and then they brought us here and they showed us how pearls were made which was actually much more interesting than I thought it would be I'm gonna go pick out my present no she's not normally I keep my expectations pretty low for like group tour type stuff but that was fantastic it highly exceeded my expectations and now we're back and we get to enjoy our balcony for like an hour until our cooking class there's currently making the biggest spring roll about Rankine only roll yours once because it's so pain stopped I'm really done it make after dinner this is the most impressive fighting that I've seen yet today has been such a blast on his cruise dinner was amazing and now Nate is going fishing for squid on the back of the boat as much fun as that sounds this huge bathtub is calling my name oh my is this big one yeah I've been fishing for a total of one minute oh yes good man changed color yeah it's much darker coming flags Oh is he squirting ink right now this is carbon suspension Wow you're screaming I'm gonna send it to the kitchen I yeah I think in the boiling I think they just cooked one and

started in 1997 we just always actually this is part of a family compound this this property used to be a coconut plantation that we created our family residences and then and when my husband's cousins and he were still young if their grandmother built recreational things for them like us but when they all grew up a lot of them went abroad well on and guma government also they decided so from there we started our DNA where do we have so what happened with our initial for looms ever seen and another one more savings to that other room so when you go around and you see our rooms it's a little bit quirky it's not like your cookie cutter a night peanut oil in one go as we earn money so it's quirky peace and quiet I think that's what we need the more smoke so yes we offer place to just relax that's one but also why is I do anything to an even cooking port where we teach one module this we teach people how to flip them because San Pablo is open up country I'm thirty pages in component valuation if you want to know about so the local so I created a native cooking tour where learn how to cook a main dish salad and dessert data but in the process you learn about the history of governor and the different ways it's used so that's that's one activity we have here our most of our dishes are recipes of my grandmother she's an interesting story because she was the daughter she herself did not poop in Sderot she would go to the market and she listened and asked that was for the vinyasa by Teddy Tadashi she served the most delicious lunches like in combination yet combination of she knew a combination of sailor in the other info with full hour which is a it's a grilled eggplant salad it was in the combination of dishes and importance and publicist also that's right in our dining hall we have a self-service station Casey Kuehn on Ilum hello a marina available so sour wine or a child that's that's what we serve also notice on when I read it that we're serving simple truss and fresh yes we are not we're not the gurney don't ever share en de da Minamata happy we are in the villa below yeah so you need them cooking Torgo that's what maybe it's hard to make beer below so mr. Naumann may experience I want you to feel when you get here to my daughter's house a sense of being with them essentially being connected to your own heritage here expansions well we've been doing over the past two years we've been having weddings so I think that's really our area there should be an onion support because it were don't know many brides and implement Farrakhan keema salsa backyard yeah but we do the worrying for you so some people so that's what we hear but we keep it attached but so our nose I have no clean storytellers because one of the things either they're they're showing a person telling a story or the pieces themselves there the story so made of money we have to remember the very very first place yes when my son has nightmares our new model in space and we would think animal so these are making for people and we he was already tired of the sawarna who ganado past and then so i i i had friends who are father's very supportive but I don't want to make animals in people since again I don't know how to do that 70 a better I'm willing to play with you so we played and then it was while I was learning and playing with me starting salary so you call them story there is a Mexican in Berkeley that's really cold storage so don't cut a boy you inspiration but I'm making a Philippine analogy
