I spent two months living in Vietnam after my time in Taiwan came to an end. For a lot of that time, I lived in the northern mountain ranges and volunteered with a social enterprise, teaching English to students from the hill tribes located there. This gave me the great opportunity to build amazing relationships with local people, experience the authentic culture of the area, as well as explore the beautiful mountains and rice terraces in my days off. I also had the chance to travel through Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, and Hoi An, where I found vibrant communities of backpackers and travelers among stunning natural beauty.
