wish i were checking in: vietnam

You might know Lily Stockman, if not by name, then by her new shop Block Shop Textiles. She founded Block Shop with her sister Hopie, after visiting India, and now they work with a family of master printers based in Bagru to create hand block printed textiles. They’re beautiful. And the first collection sold out quickly.

But this post is about Lily’s recent trip to Vietnam, which, combined with a friend’s 4-month trip through Southeast Asia has me dreaming, daily, of taking another big trip. I’d been following Lily on instagram, drooling over every one of her beautiful photos, and yesterday I stopped by her blog to read her first post about her trip. She’s thoughtful and her post is as interesting as her photos.

So this “checking in” is just about traveling, with no specific place I’d be checking in. Like our Thailand trip six years ago (posts here & here), we’d just show up and see what happened. Perfect.
