Hello from Japan, everyone!
We’ve just moved to Tokyo, and we’re in the process of setting everything up here, but while we’re at it we wanted to share some footage from our Vacation in Vietnam. It’s been a really crazy month, as we’ve been preparing a lot for the start of our new lives. We had planned, however, this small trip before our flight out to Tokyo. I’m sure some people might think it’s crazy of us to go on vacation right before such a big move, but we thought it would be a good way to calm ourselves down. If we got everything done beforehand, we could use a few days to relax by the beach with a drink or two and a good novel to read. And so we did, and Vietnam was a perfect place for it!
We stayed at the Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort. It was unlike anything we’ve ever done before. As you might have seen from our 2015 Rewind Video, we travel a lot. Whenever we travel, though, it’s usually for work. We rarely ever travel somewhere and just chill. And we’re very active travellers as well. We try to experience as much of a city as possible. We eat as much local food as we can find. We go to supermarkets and try to cook with local ingredients. We hunt and seek out as much of the city as we can in the time that we’re there. So for us to go to Vietnam for the first time in our lives and not do the same was very bizarre for us. But we resisted. We played on the beach, swam in the pool, read books, and napped. It felt weird not to go out, but, I gotta say, it was so refreshing. Really refreshing. Just sitting on our balcony and listening to the ocean, without running around, just sitting somewhere for more than 20 minutes was really something special.
And the resort was perfect for it. This resort was probably the most beautiful place we’ve ever been. And no, we’re not paid to say that. This isn’t an advertisement. We didn’t go for work. We really just went to relax, and we couldn’t have picked a better place. We ate well, rested well, and got some Vitamin D from sitting in the sun. It was great! We didn’t film that much, because we tried not to, but at the same time we couldn’t really resist. So we shot a short vlog here of us playing around, but we also shot some videos for something new we want to start. It’s not something big, and I’m not even sure if anyone will be interested, but we wanted to give it a shot. Basically, we just want to shoot some longer videos of pretty scenery. We sometimes watch videos of waterfalls or beaches on YouTube. Just keep them on loop for hours, play them in the background, and listen to the sounds. Kind of like a screensaver, you can say. We figured, hey, if we’re in some nice locations, why not try to film some of those videos ourselves. We don’t know the best way to do it yet, but we’ll keep on trying. I’m sure we’ll find some really pretty places to film around Japan, and we’ll share those videos as well.
The channel is called Scenescapes. We posted two videos of the beach on that channel. Each video is 20 minutes long or so. Check them out if you want to see what we were staring at for most of our vacation in Vietnam. Here’s one and here’s another!
We also took a lot of pictures. I realize now that we didn’t relax as much on vacation as we should have. Ha! We’re just really easily inspired! So here are some pictures we took as well:
Lastly, we also have some extra scenes. HA! They’re below. OH! And we also posted a video from our move to Japan, so you might want to check that out as well if you want to see how it all went down!
