When I flew out Friday afternoon, I felt pretty sick. I had a sore throat and my whole body ached. It didn't help that it was snowing in Indiana, so our drive back to Illinois was a long one. Saturday I was feeling better, and by Sunday, I think I was back to my normal self.
Sunday afternoon Laura took me to my first Vietnamese restaurant. SO delicious! I am now on a quest to find one in my town.
I got Phở Noodles, which I really can't believe no one has told me about before now. Rice noodles, broth, green onions, lime, cilantro, basil, and bean sprouts? This meal was made for me. I was going to take a photo, but it looks like I ate it before I had a chance to do so.
Me and my wonderful host and friend!
Before leaving, I decided to try a Bubble Tea. I've heard of these before, but again, had never tried it. I got a Chai Tea, and again, I was really in love. The "boba" took some getting used to, but I was quickly a fan.
My trip was super fun. And it made me miss having my closest friends near by. I guess the good thing is it forces me to travel and go visit them, which is always good for the soul. Even though I wasn't feeling so great, I loved having a weekend away from the usual routine. Here's hoping that I get to do it again soon!
