Gainesville Realtor Roslyn Levy and her husband, Dr. Norman Levy, are experienced travelers. They prefer to travel where life is substantially different from what they know.
Recently, they chose to visit Vietnam, with the assistance of a Hanoi travel agency.
They were advised to travel in late January or early February, when the weather was best. In the hunt for a reasonable airfare, they went with a Taiwanese carrier, flying first to Taipei, and then to Hanoi.
“We were going to a foreign country we didn't know very much about,” Roz Levy says. “Having a good travel agent there was essential.” On their first night in Hanoi, the Levys had dinner in the travel agent's home.
