hello people. I thought about visiting yen-linh 5 days in Saigon in the end of traveling through Vietnam. This happend about 3 month ago and now I worked here, made friends, tried so many different dishes, came closer to the culture and know exactly 6 sentences and the numbers from 0 to 10 in Vietnamese. I am amazed. I am happy to made the experience to stay longer in one country. It shows you much more than rushing through. Thats why my new way of traveling is also affecting my future traveling which starts tomorrow. I will leave to Cambodia and Laos, maybe Thailand, heading to china to cross it from the west (Yunnan province) to the east (close to shanghai). Find work there and learn about the culture again. Cambodia, Laos and Thailand just gonna be impressions how it could be, but not expecting to know the countries well. The language skills will be challenged much more in case of China. Learning Chinese and see how it goes. Actually I wanted to write a lot about Vietnam and my experiences in this entry. But its hard to summarize a feeling and so many experiences in a couple of sentences.
Thanks to flower guy, yen-linh, thi, abbie, hoa, duy, minh, quyen, tina, jakob, thai, martin, chris, vy, tex and all the people I forgot to name here who support me and gave me strength, fun, advices and what ever what was important to me in those 3 month.
Relating to the question from a lot of guys when I return to Germany: I don’t know. I really don’t know. I know that I miss speaking my language and know which way of talking works and what doesn’t work. The more you are away from home, the more you realize your culture background. And I can tell you for sure that I couldn’t say before I left Germany what Germans are all about. So, I am also getting closer to my country, myself and the world. Makes me feel connected to something, which is nice. But on the other side there is so much more to see. haha.
so, good bye and see you again. where ever, when ever.
