A Little Nomad's Traveling Diary

I am not a writer. I am just the person who is addicted to travels and has passion for capturing every single piece of traveling memories in words

It’s okay. That’s Vietnam.

I have been dreaming of my own book about Vietnam and what I would tell my foreign friends about the country where I was born and have been brought up. It could not only the way I am doing with Traveling in Vietnam that is my own storage of mooching experience around Vietnam but also something that I have not been able to figure out yet.

Being kinda author who always pick a title for book before actually getting the ball rolling,  I was wondering which name my book about Vietnam should have. Together with one of my friends, we were searching for a catchy name…

Should it be “Notes from Vietnam”?

Should it be “Going anywhere in Vietnam”?

Should it be “Into Vietnam”?

In the end, I chose “It’s okay. That’s Vietnam” for this page of the blog that would consists of many little stories about Vietnam including Vietnamese language, culture, people… that you have never heard of from any travel guide book.

I will publish here all of the trivial stories about Vietnam and what I would like to share with you in order that you could have better understanding of Vietnam and Vietnamese from a local perspective…

Anyone who would like to contribute the content or is willing to help me on illustrating is welcomed. Please feel free to leave me a comment here and let’s be on the same boat!

1. Vietnamese people don’t usually say “Thank you”. Really.

2. Some Vietnamese shopkeeper is “ugly”.

3. How frustrating stopping at the traffic light is

4. Our police

5. Roadside Drinking – Same scene everyday

6. Some people are too suspicious

7. Vietnamese are biased (positively) towards foreigners 

8. No-winner competition

9. Pointless to learn Vietnamese
