Enchanting beauty of Ha Long Bay

Ha Long Bay located in the Quang Ninh Province of Northern Vietnam reminded us of Milford Sound in New Zealand. Hundreds of limestone formations make cruising in the bay even more beautiful. We spent a day in the boat watching the sky, the water, the birds, fishermen and just chilling 🙂 The thing is no day spent in nature is unforgettable. This saying by Jules Renard speaks my heart –

“On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it….”

I wish we took care of these pieces of heaven like we loved our family and our possessions. After all, what would our Mother Earth be like without nature? What would our life be like without flowers, birds, trees, mountains? Nature fills our life with color and beauty. It makes me sad when I see we abuse it without thinking of consequences of our actions. Our Earth is a gift to us, this nature is loaned to us….with the hope that we will cherish it, nurture it and love it like our own while we are here and then hand it over to our children and generations to come so they can enjoy it and learn from it.

This Native American proverb says it all –

“Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.”
