I decided to celebrate my birthday by traveling solo: Destination, Vietnam.
I have traveled alone before but had not gone anywhere this far and for this long. For seasoned solo travelers, a week may seem like a joke but when it’s your first time…well. I knew that all I wanted was to have my own schedule, eat everything I could and whenever I wanted, dance to whatever I wanted, shop as quickly as I could and also know that I wasn’t going to be any where near people that petted cats. You really don’t get to see what you are capable of enjoying until you have traveled alone. Who knew that walking into a bar or dining alone in a foreign land was as fun as going with a group of friends in your own backyard.
This video is my first chapter of my 35th year and since it consisted mainly of locations where I had to layover, this quote by Lisa St. Aubin de Teran, seemed most fitting. “I would stay and love you, but I have to go.”
I am the author of my own life and this is the first out of three videos chronicling my holiday in Vietnam. Happy birthday to me!
