Vietnamese are famous for being early risers. In Nha Trang, local life starts earlier than usual. At the crack of dawn, you can watch the city come to life. There is so much life going on in Nha Trang in the early morning hours. From morning markets, to Tai Chi in the park and yoga on the beach, there are a lot of reasons to rise early and shine!
I am definitely not a morning person in Korea but during our vacation in Nha Trang, God woke me out of my sleep as early as 5:00 AM to let me witness a beautiful sunrise, a wonderful reminder of His immeasurable love and constant faithfulness.
Looking out the window, I wondered what those tiny black things floating on the water were. Zooming my camera phone in, I realized they were people enjoying an early morning swim. Hubby and I also went out to the beach to join and watch the locals before having breakfast every morning.
Every morning we watched the locals do yoga, swim, exercise, and then get on their motorbikes to head home and prepare for work. It was so inspiring. From them, we learned the value of self-love, making self-care part of one’s busy schedule. Oh how I miss our mornings in Vietnam!
