Adventure Elopement in Northern Vietnam

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

I was brought up in a small town in the countryside north of Vietnam. Growing up in the countryside offered lots of advantages for small children that we vietnamese did't even know back then. My memories are almost blurry but I remember myself enjoying that innocent time very much. My parents were a bit over protected and they did whatever it takes to shelter and protect me from life’s vicissitudes. I was out of the learning process that every kid has to figure how to cope with the outside world.

But everyone has to grow up sometime.
By 2004 I moved to a big town to study at a gifted high school. Then four years after, I found myself studying abroad in Germany. That were two of the most three important milestones that building up me of today.
Now I live in a big metropole at the heart of Central Europe. There is nothing similar between it and my home town. Looking back, I have come a long way from home and It changed my life forever. Traveling and going away gave me a vastly different perspective on everything: the world, us human being and purpose of my own life.

But I can get rid of the feeling that my worldview has traveled one full circle around the world to go back the starting point, where everything began. 
That I'm tired of the city life. For many rural people, the dream is to live in a big city. But my body is now rejecting urban life and longing to move back to the countryside. Maybe that's the reason I travel a lots and love spending time in the nature with my couples, who share the same free-spirited lifestyle, inspired by Mother Earth.

Thank you so much for making this happen. I'm grateful for what I have and don't know how is this journey going to end up but there is one thing I know for sure: We will do more, go more and love more.
