It’s been 6 month’s since I’ve returned from the trip of a lifetime, to my home country.
It was an emotional journey back to Vietnam, 38 years later and I’m still finding it difficult to articulate my experience.
Each time I’ve sat down to write since being back in the US, suddenly I have writer’s block.
How do I express in words a month long experience in a blog post?
Visiting five different cities (Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay & Hoi An) while there and everything that I saw and experienced cannot be summed up in one post.
Instead, I will be writing several posts beginning with Da Nang, where I was born and lived until 1975 when the Vietnam War ended and the beginning of my family’s traumatic escape to America.
After more than twenty hours in the air, I landed on Vietnam soil. The anticipation of this trip from the moment I planned it has finally come to fruition.
