13/52: Throwback – Vietnam Trip

May 2013:

“I am a forgetful person, I don’t remember much of the trip but I remember the feeling of being weightless, without a worry, the sun and breeze on my skin and simply existing. I felt loved by friends and her family, and a familiarity with strangers. This was my first solo backpacking trip abroad and instead of feeling lonely and scared, I felt empowered to be able to just go on my own and make it. I do remember getting scammed and people being rude but overall, it was a learning experience, to be able to understand yourself all alone in foreign land. Ever since, I have taken a few backpacking trips and its different experience each time but this first trip is the one that I’ll treasure forever.. “
