True to the quote, I wrote this post in a sleeper bus on our way to Mui Ne from Ho Chi Minh City. I can’t get my mind off our next adventure.
Many of my friends wonder how I get to go to places they dreamed about. I guess most of the time, the wrong impression gets in the way that I can afford a lavish lifestyle and have riches to spend on luxury travels. In truth, i still work an 8-5 job (9:30-6:30 in my case) or more and rely on holidays and weekends and paid leaves. I get stressed out most of the time, yet it keeps me sane that I have a journey to look forward to at the end of the month.
