As the title says, this is a random selection of photos taken throughout 2015. Fun, family, life in Ha Noi, landscapes, anything and everything basically.

This is Mats, trick-or-treating on Halloween and not being sure if all those ghosts, ghouls and goblins are real or not.

During one of May's holiday weekends we flew out to Siem Reap in Cambodia to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor. A true 'bucket list' kind of place, highly recommended!
In April 2015 we visited Hue, the imperial capital of the Nguyen dynasty in central Vietnam and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hoi An. Both are remarkable places full of colour, fine food and sunshine.
My name is Wouter. I'm a Belgian living and working in Vietnam. This blog, Xin Chào Bỉ, is a personal photographic narrative of life in Vietnam and beyond. Expect cliches and surprises, smiles and tears, concrete and forests. Hopefully you'll enjoy looking around here as much as I did clicking the shutter.
