Given that last year’s photography tour was almost perfect, there were only a few minor changes to this year’s itinerary. What I had in mind, though, was to spend more time in the tea plantations between Sapa and Mu Cang…

Between the very busy wedding season that has just ended, the hotels and resort photography, and the numerous number of photography workshops I have ran, I had no time to put creativity in words.   But this busy time is now (almost) over and tomorrow…
