After a short, 2-hour flight from Hong Kong, we finally landed in Hanoi, Vietnam at 10:00am ICT. Still in disbelief that we were in another continent, as it just felt like we sat down, woke up and were magically transported there. I took a moment to appreciate the capability of humans to invent the airplane so that we can actually fly. Amazing. We made it!
We were able to get a window seat this time around, so I took the opportunity to make a timelapse of the flight!
After picking up our luggage (luckily they all arrived in one piece), we stepped outside of Nội Bài International Airport into the wall of heat (forecast was 32°C!), where Hanoi welcomed us with the hustle and bustle of people, and the big, warm smiles and hugs from our relatives who greeted us at the terminal.
Can’t wait to catch up with the rest of the family and see how much the city has changed since I last visited 14 years ago as a kid!!
