I've been in Vietnam for approximately 3 weeks, away from home for 3 months. What do I miss? I miss my crazy friends, a big bag of potato chips, my bed, extra light (TINE) milk, frozen pizza and friday night tacos. I used to miss proper bread, cheese and ham, but we found a western place that satisfies those needs perfectly.

To do some recap of the trip so far; 10th November me, Hanne and Inga began our amaziing journey down under. We landed in Sydney after some long flights. We stayed in an area that turned out the be where the hookers go at night, Kings Cross. We made friends with our dorm and I had my first sip of "goon"(its super cheap and sort of tastes like wine, but apparently its leftover fish). We picked up our rental car and finally our Sydney-Cairns road trip had begun! All in all Australia was a big success and I learned how to actually live as cheap as possible, especially when it comes to food and accommodation. We tried making dinner every night, but sometimes our pizza hearts screamed to loud not to buy 5$ dominos.  Cairns was our final stop, and it was one of the best stop for me personally. Our whole 8 bed dorm became good friends and we partied (almost too much for the hostels liking) and we had bad karma breakfast(insider) together.

Next stop was back to dear old New Zealand where we all spent a year in 2011 on exchange. We were met at 1AM in Auckland airport by loyal Emma and Kymberly and it was like nothing had changed, 3 years later. Me and Inga couldn't believe how exited we got from seeing New World (supermarket) and Waiuku College again. Waiuku is still a city close to my heart and my second home. Going back to New Zealand was amazing because of many factors; renting a car and finally travelling with no bounderies, my amaaaaziinng friends there, parties, the hospitality these people have, Globetrotters (Inga, Astrid and Laura) reunited again, Rhythm and Vines festival and a lot more. 
 My final and a bit more serious stop is Hoi An where I have been for a bit more than two weeks. Spent first 3 days in Ho Chi Minh where we met a lot of lovely people and me and Hanne got inked for the first time. Getting a second one in Hoi An at one point. To get to Hoi An was a challenge. Not only was it 23 hours, but we were both hangover as fuuck because we met two awesome Swedish girls the night before. We made it and suddenly we had arrived in what would be my home until May. I got to the local university along with 22 other students, the course is in English and we are studying development. A normal day for me is waking up around 6.30, breakfast 7am , school 8-11, bike for approx 20-30 minutes to study center at the beach and have lunch. At night we often have some drinks and smoke shisha. The house I live in is called "The Golden House" and 7 girls live here. We all bought our own bikes, easiest way to get around in Hoi An. Life is good and I wouldn't change it for anything at the moment.
