If you frequently visit this site, then you’re probably aware that not only have I not given any updates on inversion excursion, but I haven’t blogged PERIOD in a few weeks. Which brings me to this very moment!!
For the past few weeks my love and I have been super busy preparing for a new project. To explain this project, let me take you back to about a year ago.
Freeman and I had just become official Californians and we were frequently going out for Phở (his all time favorite soup). You see, Orange County happens to have the largest vietnamese community in the US so of course and fittingly, we were always going out for Phở. Well we were eating Phở so much, an idea was born. An idea about Freeman one day making a documentary about Phở because he loves it that much. This idea wasn’t really a serious one but it never died and continued to live on throughout our stay in California. Fast forward a few months after our move to our stay in Santa Fe, that little joke about vietnamese soup is becoming a reality.
YEP! that’s right. My love has decided to make a documentary about Phở! appropriately called the PHOcumentary and yours truly will be assisting
At this point you might be wondering, “soooo what’s next?”
and that’s my cue to tell you we’ll be spending about two months in Southeast Asia!
We’ll be bringing our chef friend Curtis for the first two weeks while we’re in Vietnam (when a majority of the filming will be done), the two of us will be staying an extra week after he leaves, and then we’ll be spending about a month in Thailand (we’ve always wanted to go- two birds, one stone).
We just bought our tickets which made for the perfect moment to announce this. I know deep down, there’s excitement and anticipation but on the surface it feels mostly surreal and slightly stressful considering the impending nonstop schedule our near future holds. More than anything else, I’m feeling gratitude. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be going to Asia let alone with the love of my life. This will be by far the biggest, wildest, craziest, most ambitious trip we will have gone on to date. We don’t know any asian languages, any asian words, we’re completely unfamiliar with asian customs or mannerisms. AND we’ll be away from our home country for the longest amount of time we’ve ever been away. See what I mean by surreal??
With all of that being said, my plan is to get back into my blogging groove. I’ve started to post some health and wellness blogs over at THC Insider, but keep a lookout here especially as this is where I’ll be posting about our Asia travels, about new and crazy foods, and of course about yoga on the road. I couldn’t be happier getting to share all of this with all of you! If you’d like to follow our journey, of course you can follow me on instagram but you can get even more details if you follow the phocumentary on facebook, instagram and twitter. We’ll be doing a kickstarter for the phocumentary as well so keep your eyes peeled for that post when the time comes! namasté my loves, I can’t wait to share this amazing experience with all of you
