A Woman's Travel Necessity

With the cost of checked baggage being outrageous, a pashmina is a must to bring with you on a trip, even if you're going someplace hot. A pashmina has numerous uses, yet weigh almost nothing.

  • They look great just tied around your neck and shoulders, dressing up a very simple outfit.
  • Avoid those nasty blankets on the plane and cover up with your pashmina.
  • Impromptu picnic or beach blanket
  • Emergency towel
  • Roll it up for a neck…

Vietnamese Are Not Ugly

Beauty is said to be ‘in the eye of the beholder”.  Someone from the West may think Julia Roberts is charming.  She certainly may be, but some of the older generation in Vietnam may think differently.
