Closing Time

Today was my last full day in Asia. Kathryn and I flew from Ha Noi back to Ho Chi Minh City, arriving early evening. We had our last meal together, did some last minute shopping (I had to stock up on dvds!) and packed. I’m all set for my 27 hour commute back to Canada tomorrow morning, but I wanted to take the time out to finish this travel blog properly before I leave this continent!

I will be moving to Toronto and attending Centennial College to pursue publishing in the fall! So sadly my travels are over for the time being, which means this will be my final blog. I’m so excited to go home and see my family and friends, to be in one place for a while. I’m especially excited to stop living out of a backpack! But I’m never going to forget the wonderful experiences I’ve had over the past 14 months, beginning with the move to China last May and finishing in a hostel in Vietnam after seeing what Southeast Asia has to offer. Thailand and Vietnam are definitely 2 of my favourite places that I’ve visited, and I will always carry a part of my China experience with me in whatever I end up doing with my life.

Thanks for being a part of my journey, thanks for following my narrative as I made my own story through Asia! It’s been a joy to share these experiences with you.

I’ll see you soon!
