Round and Round We Go

I love to travel and I love to eat. This is where to the two worlds intersect.

Siem Reap - Angor Wat (at sunrise), Angor Thom, Ta Prohm and a bit of Cambodian BBQ.

Welcome to Cambodia. Traveled by bus to Phnom Penn and visited the royal palace along with the Choeung EK (killing fields).

Ho Chi Minh City - street food

Hoi An - Pt 2

Hoi An - our Hoi An Greenstay Homestay view of rice paddies. We also tried some specialties dishes of the area: white rose (dumpling with minced pork and shrimp covered in crispy onions), the bahn xeo (a Vietnamese crepe served with rice paper) and the Cao Lau (noodles served with pork).
We made a stop at the vegetable village en route to the beach. This goat herder was walking his flock across the beach. We also tried two of Lady Vy’s places - the Mermaid (Nhu Y) and Cargo.

Road to Hoi An via the Hai Van Pass. We stopped at Lang Co, Danang Bay & China Beach.

Phong Na Mtn - cave & grottos. We drove by the river that separated north and south Vietnam on the way to the mountain. After a 30 min boat ride we rowed into this amazing cave. For our last night in Hue, we tried their special local dishes: Bahn nam and bun bo hue (beef noodle soup).
