Cycling Vietnam has toyed with my emotions. It’s been a while since travel made me feel such intense highs and dramatic lows, but Vietnam (or really cycling) has reminded me just how much of an emotional rollercoaster I am. In case you didn’t know, biking is freaking hard. Especially when you decide to lug along virtually everything you own, on unpaved mountain roads with no civilization in sight. It’s amazing, don’t get me wrong, and I am falling in love with the country and its people. But cycling? Not so sure how I feel about it yet. I can tell you my body is not in the least pleased though.
Despite the lows, the emotional, adrenaline-pumped highs have been remarkable; I might even say they’ve made every exhausting pedal worth it.
