Place with no name (hörnet Nguyen Trung Troc/Le Loi): best bun thit nuong in town
When I lived in Seoul for 3 years, the one thing I regretted the most was not traveling around Asia as much as I should have. Yeah, I visited a few cities here and there. Well, I guess you can say it's all about timing. Perhaps I would not have enjoyed it as much traveling alone then. Finding the right travel partner does make all the difference! It wasn’t until after I left Korea did I finally visit Vietnam. So here we go. Prior to this trip, I had a long list of expectations. Mainly food. Okay, Vietnam has exceeded my expectations by miles. After picking the brains of 2 amazing bloggers/writers- Jen Yi from ‘Sites and Bites’ and Jan Ekholm who live in Vietnam, their list of favorites not only made our trip worthwhile, it made me anticipate my return trip. Hopefully sooner than later~
When I travel to different countries, I have to 'reset' my mind, body, emotions, habits, and attitude so that I can 'just be present'. Upon arrival, I wasn’t anxious to know what was going to happen the next day. Everyday felt like I was really given ‘just that day’ to live and eat, and wanted to take advantage of every moment. If I didn’t, it would pass by under a blink.
