Weekend Escapes While Teaching English in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

By Laura Nalin

I’d like to fancy myself as someone who’s pretty easy to please. Although I’ve lived in major cities for the past ten years, I’ve always been within driving distance of a natural escape.

By: Kiran Bhat

To choose to travel the world was not a decision lightly made. My parents had placed a strong emphasis on education for my entire life, and to tell them that I would rather write novels and travel the globe than continue on to a Master’s Degree was akin to throwing out all of the hundreds of thousands of dollars onto a flame. Still, I had a very particular vision I felt was my duty to pursue. I had to create a type of novel that made people think globally, place into language the effect of 7 billion people being attached not to particular nations but to a greater planet via the Internet. In order to have the experience I needed to carry out my vision, I not only needed to travel, I needed to travel in a way that could allow me to know the maximum amount of countries as possible.
