My stay was near the airport, maybe, that’s why I heard the sound of the plane so much. At dusk, when the sun stared to come down, while plane kept taking off, transporting passengers to faraway places.
I miss those times, when I look up at the sky and see the air plane wungs of plane. I look at them in aw they are so big, I’m overwhelmed in emotions. Then, I also wish, I can fly one day, I wish to take off, I wish to hit the roads, I wish to see new horizons, not just my hometown.
Spring on the border Viet Nam
One day of 2016, which I don’t remember exactly it is, just that it was at the beginning of autumn. I felt so bored with my job, that, I wanted to give up everything, I wanted to discover a new world that I love from when I was student, but, I never dare to think I could do it. My mother often said, if you want to do something, do it to the end. So, I quitted my job, and I started new journey. The adventure bigan, when I booked bus ticket to Da Lat. However, the journey that brought me to Ha Giang Province has been wonderful and I miss the people, I met and the places I went to.

Finally, I started to write a blog to share the experiences of my journey. So, here starts my story.
From 2016 to 2018, I went to many places from south to central Viet Nam, Then, I stared see maps of Viet Nam. I felt I could go on forever
So, I thought, I would spend 1 year without seeing the whold country exploring all that S-shaped strip of land. In that year, I went to all 3 retions Norther, Central and Souther Viet Nam.

I transformed in to many engugeed with many different ethinic, trying to learn as much as possible. When I was Tay girl, when I was Thai girl, when I was a Dao Do girl, when I was Ba Na girl. After, I would come back to the Kinh nation with their traditional dresses.

I did that for a while and after a year, I had set foot in all the places of Viet Nam. Then, I was satisfied and returned to Sai Gon.
My journey to conquer Viet Nam is not as easy as I thought, I had an accident in Hoa Binh, I had to be hospitalized because of an allergy in Cao Bang, I almost drowned in Du Gia, Ha Giang. And then, I met real perverts along the way. And even, near Quang Tri provice, I went to Laos to travel, I was told by the traffic police to give them money, after 187km, I ran out of money, out of gas and I didn’t know, how to come back to Viet Nam.

But still, I received in exchange many things. Homestay owners that I would like to host in return give me their best support when I was in their hometown. I travel alone, but, I’m never alone. I meet many friend, not only VietNames, but also many people from other country. My foreign friend told me many story about the world out there and so my world grew bigger. I didn’t think about making money to come back home, I thought more about seeing the world and to discover new horizons.
