Reached another level today for driving. Bighorn Canyon is out there, but wow it’s worth it. We covered so many different environments today from the snowy mountain, flower covered meadows, sandy desert, canyons and monolith towers. We are almost on overload tonight reflecting on it all. America the beautiful is all I can say.
One day I decided to jump on a bus and a few hours later I was dropped off at a random location witin the city of #Hoian . I stepped off the bus and was greeted with awkward silence. It was strangely empty for the middle of the day in a supposed tourist town. I would have never guessed.
Being the spontaneous traveller that I am, nothing is ever planned out ahead of time. This time it was no different. Regulr routine. Take out the phone, find the second cheapest accommodation available with a nice looking bathroom and off I go.
An hour later and I am still walking carrying everything I had to my name on my back. Beads of sweat poured out of every pore. I was hot sticky mess. The sun be no joke in #Vietnam .
My tummy was nagging me the whole time like a five year old child on a road trip. "Are we there yet? Are we there yet?" Constantly reminding me how hungry I was. Eventually gave in when I saw the godly words "PHO" on a sign. I took a leap of faith and tested my luck. I walked into what looked like a mom & pop pho restaurant ... ?
A large covered patio area with small everything. Small gas burner stove, small tables and chairs, and a few small rooms in the back.
A nice elderly lady served me the most delicious bowl of chicken pho. It was exquisite. While I ate, I was graced with a very distracting shirtless man in the back. Struggling to cool himself off with small electric fan ... and this was the beautiful scenery across the street. 🤣
Long story short, I became a regular here and made this place a mandatory daily pitstop because good eatz be good eatz!
Made it to our home away from home for the next two nights!! But I do have to say that I may be bad luck...both times I’ve partaken in a long road trip, the car I’ve been in has broken down. At least this time, it was an easier fix!! Either way, we are excited to be here and oh so sweaty after walking to get dinner! Cheers to 97° 🔥

Can you guys believe that it’s already July? 🤯 Where has the year gone? Sometimes it feels like we’ve been living in a dream for the past 6 months ⑊ I still have a few more travel photos to share but after that it’ll be back to life at home 🤍
