After a well needed rest day in Hue, it was off to our next destination of A Luoi which was 78km away. A few superlatives come to mind when describing today: hottest, hilliest, hardest, longest (time) & most scenic. We knew today we had two big hills to climb and we knew they were going to be hard, but I think it was a shock to most the actual difficulty of it all. It's not a good sign you know you have a 15km hill and your dead tired after the first 200 meters. Your legs are burning, your sweating like you're in a sauna, you reach for your water bottle and realise you have about three sips left. Some people managed to pedal the whole thing, a lot of us had to walk parts. But we all finished! Goal is to walk less tomorrow.
