One of my favorite images from Vietnam wins Passion Passports Hidden Gems Instagram Challenge




I rarely enter Instagram contests. But since I was traveling, entering this one was a no brainer. I love this image I took in Hoi An, Vietnam and it’s really nice to see it get a little loving attention.


I tend to add text with my images. In this particular contest, I think my words were just as important as the image.


The sweetest moments traveling can come while waiting for transport or during a mishap. My bicycle got a flat here, so while my boyfriend took off to fix it; I wandered around. Watching these boys fish reminded me of my own childhood and got me to thinking about how many children are losing out on a wild upbringing by sitting inside and staring at screens.


Traveling reminds me that kids need to be kids!”
