The trek to Sapa involved stopping by a local’s home to see what rural Vietnamese life is like. It was the cold rainy season and we were shivering all over upon entering the house – should have joined the party around the fire! (See the original photo in colour.)

Dinnertime is the perfect moment of sharing not only food, but conversations and happiness. One of the most memorable dinners I’ve had recently (sort of) was in Ta Van village, after a group of 10 trekkers arrived at our homestay for the night. Many of us were wet and muddy from the trek in the rain and definitely very tired and looking forward to some homemade Vietnamese food. Our host certainly prepared for us what seemed like a feast, and it was almost paradise on a table! Let’s dig in!
