Vietnam, a land of delicious noodle Pho, a place with mesmerizing beauty and remarkable landmarks.
I’ve traveled around Vietnam, particularly in Hanoi and I fell in love with it. I also did my first ever volunteering at a homestay, teaching English at a private nursery and kindergarten and lived there for three months.
“Vietnam, a nation of brave women, although somewhat chaotic in one’s eyes, makes me appreciate tropical places and teaches me to live a simple and healthy life. It also shows me how to be kinder and more patient“.
“Homestay is what they call the place, which I just found out later on when I mingled with the rest of the students. There were plenty of them, around 30-35 students who were in their 20s-30s. They’re incredibly nice people. Glad I chose Hanoi as one of the places where I did this volunteering.
“In Tam Coc, boatmen and boatwomen use their feet to row the boat while tourists enjoy beautiful and stunning landscapes. Tam Coc is one of the most visited provinces in Vietnam”.
Perched on the rooftop (65th floor) of Lotte Hotel, Top of Hanoi offers an amazing panoramic view of the city.
“I wasn’t bothered by the fact that he didn’t get back to me.No, I didn’t feel bad that he didn’t pursue to interview me or hire me to teach at his academy. I just never stopped wondering why employers would hire only native speakers and not someone from Asia or someone from a non-native speaking country. In Vietnam, wanting to be an English teacher comes with a high competition”
“Hanoi is truly a lovely place for me. I experienced the coldness I’ve been dreaming of. If you happen to make your way to this place, here are some of my epic and fun experiences in this cold, lovely place”
