Hi everyone!

I’m Niobe, the 26 year old aspiring writer and illustrator behind Better Half Full. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Originally from the UK, in the summer of 2018, my boyfriend and I took a leap and moved to Vietnam, despite neither of us having visited Asia before. Now living and working in Hanoi, the last few months have been quite a whirlwind! At times, it’s been exciting, nerve-wracking, interesting, confusing and inspiring.

Better Half Full is my little online place where I’ll be sharing all aspects of this: recommendations in Hanoi, travel tips for Vietnam and other spots in South East Asia, and #realtalk posts inspired from the realities of living and travelling round this beautiful part of the world.
