  • Description

    G'day!

    Bao and I were both born and grew up in Australia. His roots are Vietnamese and I am Chinese. For the past 5 years, we've been working in Hong Kong in restaurants.

    2019 - we got a one-way ticket to Ho Chi Minh City in Feb! The purpose of this trip is for us to get to know more about our ancestral land; Vietnam and China, through experiences and exchange with the people (you!) that live there.

    The rough itinerary (flexible) is to travel north and eventually across the Vietnam-China border to Yunnan and Sichuan.

    Bao is extremely passionate about Vietnamese food and all food in general. He is super excited to discover more about it on this journey.

    I (Jessica) on the other hand is interested in discovering a different way of life - one that's not always measured by the amount of money you earn or spend (although it does give you more choice and freedom). I'm interested in sustainable living/travel, and taking care of the beautiful nature and environment that sustains us. Things I would love to learn is natural building, horticulture, and do a Permaculture Design Course one day. But I am open to all work as life is all about creating new experiences, good or bad, all contributes to our personal growth :)
