Where to start? I met this girl when we were in 7th grade, barely 13, and just trying to make our way around gym class, conquer our first 10K runs, and partake in other carefree middle school activities.
Since then, every day has been an adventure.
We made it through high school together. We rocked as Key Club and Cross Country/Track duo at Granada. We worked hard, played hard, college came, and college went. How does one summarize the past 11 years in a Tumblr post? So many memories…
Anyway, during our time apart in college. Maeve has been a busy traveler while I have been oh-so-envious! Somehow she picked up the Chinese language to an incredible degree of fluency, explored the UAE, hiked Everest and Kilimanjaro, volunteered in Uganda, and most impressively (to me at least)…saw some hippos!
Clearly, we are long overdue for an adventure.
I got tired of playing “where in the world is Maeve?” The time has finally come for us to take a trip of our own — to Vietnam!
We have a whole South-to-North 10-day itinerary planned. I can’t wait to experience what this country has to offer! A fresh culture, the bustling cities, the stunning waterways, and of course THE FOOD.
Most importantly, I am looking forward to spending time with one of my best friends. :)
I’m packed and ready. Cheers to spontaneity!
