Highway riding, Headwind and Horns to Hue

Dong Ha – Hue = 70km

Up early yet again and departed the industrial busy city of Dong Ha making our way south to Hue. Highway riding was a little bit of a bore after the amazing past 10 days through Laos. With temps hitting 37+ degrees today and not a lot to look at along the way today was all about the destination not the journey.

We whacked out the 70km as quick as we could with a headwind and arrived to the lovely city of Hue. Found the Four Seasons guesthouse where we will park ourselves for the next few days.

Feeling very civilised after the remoteness of Laos and the pizza was a hit last night along with cold beers overlooking the Perfume River.

2230km the journey so far
Departing Dong Ha
Highway riding all the way to Hue.
Extremely bedraggled in the heat. Drinks break and needed that hammock.
The busy streets of Hue
Walking a big load down the street.
Another city another beer and bargain at 50c! Still looking a little puffed out.
Soooo tasty and nice change from noodles and rice.
