To the sea!

It's time again for Blue Dragon's annual trip to Halong Bay!

Every summer we get together all of the kids with disabilities who are part of the Blue Dragon family. They are quite a diverse group: some are deaf, some are blind, others are confined to wheelchairs, and many have intellectual impairments.

One thing they have in common is that they lead very difficult lives. This is their only 'fun time' for the year; for most of these kids, their whole life consists of being at home or at a special school. There are no days out, no trips to the park, no visits to the shops.

Once again Halong Pearl Hotel welcomed us in, totally for free, and Exotissimo Travel  provided the transport, making this trip possible. Thank you both for this exceptional generosity.

And exactly what did the kids and their carers do on this trip? I'll let the pictures tell the story...

I love these pictures. Thank you for share so we can get a little glimpse of the happiness this event brought them.
