en route to vietnam

March 4, 2015

By the time you read this, I would have just landed in Vietnam - the land my parents grew up in but never spoke much about. The country I’ve longed to visit but was deterred by my parent’s disposition of their last memory fleeing the country during the war. Finally, I will be in my potential home away from home.

I’ve put a mood board of what I’ve always envisioned my home country to be and feel: tropical, colorful, bright, fresh, raw, and somber. I am seething with excitement and will definitely be blogging / vlogging / instagramming along the way. Thank you so much Soludos for the opportunity I really have been waiting a lifetime for.

  5. So excited for you!! My friend with similar family background (always left on those terms), she made a return trip for the first time since she was 4. It was unforgettable, beautiful with a touch of heartbreak. I hope it's as memorable for you and can't wait to see the photos!

  6. Oh my goodness. Going back to the homeland will be such a magical experience. I am in a similar situation--I grew up in the USA and only heard ancient stories from my parents about Iran. The first time I finally visited was only a few years ago but it was easily the most life-changing trip ever. Take everything in--you're going to have a great time :) Can't wait to see photos! xx
    Also: p.s. a brand sponsored your trip to Vietnam!? What!? Howwww

  13. You look amazing! great choice of clothes. Also, you should checkout they are a new up and coming boutique that has been getting alot of buzz lately its also reasonably priced. And, today is free shipping Fridays.

  14. I spent a summer in Vietnam my first year out of college - amazing experience to get back in touch with your heritage. My parents were refugees too and since then, they've somewhat reconciled their painful memories. Hope you have an amazing and honest experience - keep an open heart and mind and remember every Asian American has their own, unique and individualistic trajectory through life.

  15. Hope you enjoy your travels and adventures in Vietnam! Looking forward to reading about your experience out there. :)

  16. I've only gone to Vietnam once when I was 10. I wish so much that I could've appreciated the beauty and culture of it at the time. Oh well, that simply means I'll just have to go again! Can't wait to hear about your adventures. X
