Dreaming of conquering new roads across the country, Hoang Anh overcame all prejudices and barriers to set foot in 51 provinces, cities and a number of Asian countries.
Overcoming prejudices, tourism “dust” for both female pediatric
The first year of university is a time marking a big turning point for the girl Nguyen Khanh Hoang Anh (SN 1997), currently living and working in Ho Chi Minh City. The first backpacking trip through the western provinces – conquering the southernmost tip of the country is her chance with a passion for travel.
Hoang Anh recalls: “That trip had great experiences and greatly influenced my future travel orientation. That trip helped me open my eyes a lot.”
Experiencing 2 days of living at a local house on Hai Tac island in Kien Giang, climbing the Forbidden Mountain to watch the sunrise in An Giang for the first time or running through the ripe golden rice fields, touching the southernmost peak of the country with your own hands are the Memories imprinted in Hoang Anh’s subconscious.
After the trip, Hoang Anh began to list, earn money, arrange a time to travel to all parts of the country.
Deciding to pursue a “dusty” travel passion, the girl born in 1997 received mixed opinions. Not only is the worry from parents and relatives, but also the scrutiny and derision from outsiders, “students who see going out like that all day will probably not study well”.
However, the stubbornness of the extravagant 20 years old, ignoring the prejudices, has shaken the parents’ thoughts, especially recently Hoang Anh and her mother had an impressive trip to hunt clouds in Da Lat.
The girl confided: “After the return trips, I tell my parents about my experiences in each place, how I have grown up after each trip. Creative articles or works of tourism content are also gradually received and gained positive comments”.
When she was a student, due to the limited economic part, the girl who loved backpacking “struggled” to earn money early. In the second year, Hoang Anh went to work as an intern at a multinational company. Besides, the 9X girl self-taught more soft skills to earn extra income from freelance work. Currently, in addition to Marketing, the income from content creation also helps Hoang Anh pay for his own trips.
In order to have different experiences on each trip, Hoang Anh often schedules, invites more friends to go on a trip, or sometimes goes solo. Girls often choose cheap “dust” travel plans to match their personal finances.
Step out of your comfort zone
51 is the number that Hoang Anh proudly mentions, it is the number of provinces in Vietnam she has visited.
“I love the journey from the interesting things of the journey. I love the feeling of being a traveler in a strange sky, stepping out of my comfort zone to challenge myself and become more mature. I find, listen and develop myself when traveling around the streets, “said Hoang Anh.
After each trip, the 9X girl saves her experiences and memories through priceless photos and short films. Above all, she also neatly arranged each step into her own eyes and mind to remember the most.
Sharing with Dan Tri, Hoang Anh has a lot of sympathies when it comes to the 12-day journey to conquer the East – Northwest in the ripe rice season. On the way, the girl was able to open her eyes and freely admire the famous ripe golden terraced fields: Sa Pa (Lao Cai), Mu Cang Chai (Yen Bai), and Hoang Su Phi (Ha Giang).
Here, Hoang Anh is also immersed in the unique highland culture, watching the wild and majestic natural scenery of the mountainous provinces.
However, the 9X girl also met the “bad crying and laughing” road, typically the Dien Bien – Lai Chau route. Hoang Anh recalls: “This is the road to conquer the western pole of A Pa Chai. The road is far away, quite deserted, the mountains are winding and the road is very bad. I was driving in the rain, it broke down. the vehicle lost its way, went through a dark road full of rocks, there are muddy sections.
Going through many new lands, from a sensitive, weak, and shy girl Hoang Anh gradually became stronger and more mature. In the face of unexpected events and challenges, the girls calmly solved the problem quickly and neatly.
“I am happy to receive the opportunity that I have encountered on the journey: beautiful wild places, interesting people, and meaningful memories”.
The epidemic situation in the past 2 years has upset the girl Hoang Anh’s plan to conquer 63 provinces. From the first half of this year, when the epidemic situation stabilized, she “in time” conquered the western pole and discovered the most beautiful coastal road in the central region.
In the future, waiting for the epidemic to stabilize, the Northeast and Central Highlands will be the next destinations that Hoang Anh wants to leave a footprint on. She also plans a journey to explore the world to spread her passion for travel to many young people.
