Why I went travelling

I got a good job and income in Vietnam, after graduating from Australia, so I thought, ‘Why shouldn’t I explore this world?’ I loved travelling as a backpacker, since I was in New Zealand and Australia. Now I have enough finance to make some good trips to destinations that I have not been to before and that are also on my bucket list. I found out that travelling made me learn, and at each trip I reunited with friends whom I had not seen for ages and also made new friends.

Every trip was so exciting to me and I always had something to tell when coming back. I financed my trips with savings and income (salary from permanent jobs and freelance projects).
