What was your favorite traveling experience?

Ariel: I motor scootered to Mai Chau from Hanoi for a weekend in Vietnam in 2012 and stayed in a homestay in a cabin on stilts. The family had two little children and they cooked us meals and we hiked during the day. The town had a very interesting history and the views were stunning. I will never forget this weekend trip.
