Our last morning in Ho Chi Minh City, looking out at the calm of the early morning from our hotel room in Bến Thành District.

Day 41/42: End of the Road

The final day of our trip began at dawn, before the rest of Saigon started its day. From our hotel room balcony, we watched as buses and motorbikes began to filter through the typically-frantic roundabout connecting the city’s lively districts.


The first stop on the long road home was a three-hour layover in Kuala Lumpur. We found an Indian restaurant in the food court. The nearby juice bar had a 3-in-1 option that called our name after 40 days of travel eats.

We arrived at Tokyo's Haneda Airport on a mission to catch the last train home. In a karmic kick in the pants, our luggage came out five minutes before the train departed. We spent one last night in a hotel, staying at the airport itself.

By the afternoon of Day 42, we were finally on our way home. The "stop" button on the bus called out to me... we were finally stopping.

The end of another adventure... and where we've already started planning the next one!
