Day 80. My trip is about to come to an end. After more than two months in Vietnam, I got really accustomed to the vibe, the people, the food, the traffic, the dirt and the noise and I’m really afraid to get a reverse culture shock when I get back to Europe. But everything has to come to an end I guess, right?
The last days
I spent my last days chilling out in Hanoi, drinking coconut coffee, meeting up with friends I made here and playing board games, having a good time with a few Bia Hoi at night and writing in my private analog book about my last few experiences. Overall I wrote about 140 pages covering 80 days of laughter, friendship, pain, drinks, sun, wind, rain and never-ending Bánh mì’s. It was sometimes annoying but I’m really glad I’ve done it because it’s such an amazing memory I can always look back to.
It was a seriously great experience to travel through this country for so long all by myself, I could not have imagined anything better and if you are still fighting with yourself about whether you should go on a solo adventure or not: do it, you don’t have anything to lose, but so much to gain! 🙌🏻
