Hey Vlog, its me Isabel. Today, we will be travelling to what is called the crown jewel of the Eastern Alharun islands, Rhava. At 6:30 am I arrived at my airline at the airport. The flight in question was a straight flight across the Adlantic on Sakura Air, the official airline of Rhava. I will be flying business class, and so I was immediately brought to the airline lounge. The lounge was spectacular. Each chair was cushioned and could recline, and you had a straight view of the runway. While I was there I snacked on some cheese, and edited my travel plans. Then my flight was called and we headed to the gate, me grabbing a couple cheeses for the flight lol. When I arrived on the plane the polite people showed me to my seat, which was curtained off from the rest of plane. I stowed my luggage in the carry on and preceded to raid the seat compartments. I found some slippers, a blanket, and a eye mask. I was rather disappointed when I turned on the tv and all that came up were R-Dramas in Nhai, so I spent most of the flight trying to sleep, and boy was it easy. When we were about halfway through the flight the flight attendant came and gave me some champagne fresh from the central region, and I think what they said was called Nem Nuong. The pink meat on the stick was to die for, the sweetness and the texture were wonderful. However, as we entered Rhavanese airspace I felt a bit woozy because apparently Rhava was going through a hectic month with deadly hurricanes. There was a lot of turbulence. Now, you may be asking where was I planning on landing. My flight was to Lãng Ri Sumat INT airport in Chow Chó. I chose this city because I decided to start from the south, and drive up north. Then, on my flight back I would stop in Mandura City, and the fly home. The flight into the city was reasonably clear, and as I looked out the window I watched as the city grow before me. The thrill I felt as the plane passed over all the little towns surrounded by mountains, before landing next to the glistening waters of the Jaang River. I grabbed my carry ons and we were shepherded to the front of the plane, where we walked into the airport. The airport was a lot cleaner then most places in Europa, and I was happy to see all the people getting off the plane in aw. I quickly went through customs and then left the airport. The sweltering heat was a lot to handle, my god it was hot. 35 celcius, wow. The Rhavanese summer is wonderfully hot. One of the things I was able to check off immediately on my checklist of things to do was ride a tuk tuk, though it was not as wonderful as I thought it was. The tuk tuk driver was not the kindest person saying I was too heavy and that I needed to pay extra. And we waited in 30 degree weather in traffic, while I inhaled exhaust. On top of that the driver dropped me off a block away from the hotel, and I had to walk the rest of the way. Not cool man. I walked to the Anatamin hotel myself, and the people there were very nice. They helped me to the room, and asked if I needed anything. Anyways, after I got settled I went to the Concierge to ask for places to go for dinner. The Concierge recommended this famous restaurant called Rhava Citron, and it was extraordinary. They had this huge bowl of simmering Phở Đặc Biệt, and these traditional spring rolls made with rice paper called Chả Giò. They also had this tradition southern desert called Jê Múng, directly translating to jelly paste. It was a group of multicolored gelatinous cubes flavored passionfruit-mango, rasberry-lime, and kiwi-guava. They were to die for, they were very easy to eat, tasted wonderful, and were cold, which was good for the heat that had only slightly gotten less humid. I also met up with my friend Qui, and me and him talked for a while, then I decided it was time to go home. This time I just called a taxi and drove home. I ended up going to sleep watching the lights turn on in the city.

Hey vlog, so July 30th I forgot to vlog, but it wasn't really a big deal, because we were going to tour the old quarter but a massive storm hit so we just went to the New Rhava Aquarium, which is the biggest aquarium in the country. In Rhava there is a law that no museum may have ownership of an animal bigger than a great white. They had a giant exhibit of penguins and a tube that went underwater where we saw morays and manta rays. We also got to pet little sharks and stingrays. It was so magical. Then I treated myself, by getting fresh sesame balls stuffed with red bean paste from the bakery below my hotel. The food was so good, it was greasy, filling, and very hot in temperature. The bean paste was cold, and sweet. It was such a great snack. Anyways, the past 7 days I have been trapped inside, because of killer storms and the mourning for the late president. More bad news, my flight for Mandura was cancelled, so looks like I wont be vlogging that either. But anyways, today I was going to check out the old district of the city. I called a taxi through the hotel, and was driven to main street, in front of an old catholic church. The architecture was so beautiful, with carved gargoyles clutching the sides of the red roofs, while stained windows pierced the tan walls with their vibrant colors. I walked around for a bit and stumbled into a restaurant/pub. The lights were dimmed, and the waitress came over to me and gave me a glass of sangria and asked what I wanted to eat. Top service, 5 stars. I ordered some grilled oysters and some scallops. The grilled oysters were awesome, they were so big and they were grilled in cheese and oil, and as I took bites the juices ran down my mouth. The scallops came in their shells on top of noodles, in black bean sauce. This was a apparently a signature dish of Chow Chó, and it was excellent. The scallops were nice and umami and the noodles and bean sauce were very salty. I decided I would walk to the blue palace, which is a palace right outside the old district that looks down onto the city. As I walked through the streets to get there, I looked at the beautiful houses with red tiled roofs, and red stilts attacking them to the ground. The sky was cloudless, and the leaves rustling in the wind were very soothing. But what happened next, I did not enjoy. I had to hike up the hill to the palace, and there were so many stairs. For such a nice and fancy city, could they of not set up and elevator! When I arrived at the palace, I was panting and soaked in sweat. But the building was beautiful, the swopping tiled blue roofs, looked so good with the gold naga snaking down the roof. And more red stilts attacking it to the hill, what is with that. And then, something even worse happened. After walking through the palace, and seeing an ancient buddhist shrine, I noticed that there was a gondola running from the top of the mountain to the ports. I was very upset. I took the gondola, and went to a restaurant called YaYa. They sold this killer poutine, with made in duck fat. The fries were so good, and were given to you in a cone. I also ordered a Banh Mi, which was made with duck fat. IT WAS SO GOOD, definitely coming back, before I leave. I then went to a Rhavanese ice cream roll place, where I tried it for the first time. It was pretty good, but very filling. The designs were cool, and I loved the fresh fruit on the top. I then headed home, and went to bed. Good night Rhava!

Okay, is this thing on? Heeey Vlog, so, today's video is going to be a little shorter due to me transitioning to another hotel and getting situated. So, this morning I got up and packed up. I was out the door at 10:30 and decided to stop at this restaurant called Lê's. I just ordered some spring rolls and some seafood noodle soup. The soup is my new favorite, I loved all the different fish balls and different seafood. If I had to choose I liked these little tipis, filled with mentaiko. It was delicious. Anyways, at 11:15 I called my taxi and headed to North Station, which is one of two train stations in the city. The taxi got a little fed up at me, as I was a little anxious that I was late. They asked for extra, which really angered me. And then dropped me off a street down. So I was running down the crowded streets, towards the train station. I arrived just in time, and waited for my train. I was going to be riding a bullet train, and when it pulled into the station it was hard not to get giddy. I was very happy to ride the famous Rhavanese bullet train. Now you may be asking me, where are you going now? So, the plan is that I will be staying 7 days in Rhavanăm Lõ Hai Xaan (The Rhavanese Sea). I will probably only vlog the first day, as I will be relaxing the rest of the days on the turquoise waters. This is my vacation after all. My hotel in question is on the promenade, in Pukopai city, overlooking the see. As the train rounded the corner I looked out the window to see the gorgeous sea, with thousands of stone structures topped with green jutting out of the water. The train pulled into the station, and I grabbed my luggage. I came out into a beige stone structure, with many people clustered around saying goodbye. I went to the exit where I called a cab. I arrived at my hotel, and glanced at the beautiful ocean behind me before entering the hotel. The inside of the hotel was beautiful, with palms growing from every direction. I got settled and then quickly decided to go to the beach. I walked across the street and arrived at Coco beach, which had everything set up already with rows of seats and umbrellas. I got set up and then ran down to the water, and the water was gorgeous. It was turquoise, and you could see the bottom. And the temperature was just right. It was hard to leave. For dinner I just had some clam pasta, and then went to bed. Goodnight!

Hey vlog, its 10:00 am here, and I finally adjusted to the timezones. Today Im probably only going to vlog one thing. So, at 10:30 I took a pedicab to Tang Rum Aviation (Mr Rum Aviation). When I arrived, there was only a couple, so I was basically on my own. You may be asking already, what was I planning to do here. I wanted to take a seaplane tour over Rhavanăm Lõ Hai Xaan. The tour provided us with some bread and butter and some orange juice, as well as these grilled grapes with salted cheese. Delicious. We boarded the plane, and we were up in the air in no time. First we passed over The Spear Which Pierces Heaven. This was a rock formation said to be created when the God Ben Hương threw his spear to slay a creature threatening Rhava. Next we passed over the Prawn islands, which is a group of islands near the edge of the sea.

Apparently most of the southern region's shrimp also comes from here. As we passed over the pilot talked about how these giant prawns are now endangered after overfishing, and that the government is trying to pass laws to prevent overfishing. Then we passed over our final stop the Tian Chanh (100 mountains). These are a series of rock formations closer to coast, said to be the gift from dragons to protect the coast from aggressors. 

spacer.pngAs we were coming in for a landing , I got very scared because the pilot was telling us where to move to keep the plane balanced, it was very frightful. After the flight, I headed down to a fishmarket, where I ate fresh prawns off the boat, and this dish which was basically a raw shrimp. It was so sweet, I loved it. Then I popped by the beach for an afternoon swim.

The water was incredibly warm, and the waves were very nice, and it wasn't very crowded. Then I went to back to the hotel. As a reminder next time I vlog, we will be leaving the Rhavanese Sea. Goodnight Pukopai!
