About Me

Hi. I'm Thảo (You can call me Tina or my nickname "Gấu" like "bear" 😅). I'm living in Can Tho city with my Mom. I can't say myself that I'm a nice or kind or friendly.. person. For me that is your remark.

My life had changed since I made my first trip to a strange land. At that time, I met many people, saw many beautiful views and knew more about the cultures in my country. Have more some new friends who are foreigns makes me try to learn English so I can talk to them better without using body language or google translate. Learning a new language give me a thought "where is my limit?". I want to get out of my comfort to experience more, to challenge myself more, to meet more new people... I believe that everything is created by exactly it must be.

Your value system is created by your culture, your parents, your experiences,... And mine is created by my stuffs. So I never judge anybody about their thought, about their action. I always respect people as the way they are (I've learned more that from NAS who traveled around the world in 1000 days and made 1000 videos, it's so amazing).

"What will be, will be. If we were destined to meet, we would meet". I believe that every person who I've met and will meet in my life always gives me something. If lucky I have a friend or not I have a lesson. It's ok! I just want to be myself when I meet someone and I hope you to be like that too.

I love watching video, doing photography and reading about traveling books. It makes me so excited and want to take a backpack to go immediately. The world is huge, there is so much thing to see, to learn, to explore and to experiences. I think that travel is to experiences, not to complete something. So I'll enjoy and accept everything which happens to me.

I really hope that we can be friends and help each other has the most beautiful experiences when we travel.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

That is when I decided tattoo. One thing which I hatest before. And then I have received a lot of judgment from my mom, relatives, friends, neighbors and all the people who just met me. I wonder why I can't do that. Maybe in their eyes I'm a good daughter, living up to moral standards so I can't do the opposite. Finally, I chose to live up to what I wanted. I'll never, ever regret the things I have done because I only get one life. It's actually my duty to live it as fully as possible.
