Travelling has become a popular pastime for many individuals who seek to explore new places and appreciate the beauty of nature, and I am no exception.

My name is Nguyen Tra My (Chilly), and I am currently pursuing a master's degree at SolBridge International School of Business in Korea. During my one-year stay here, I have had the pleasure of creating countless cherished memories.

 

I am an avid traveler who always seeks new experiences because my ideal way of living is "You Only Live Once." I want to immerse myself in various experiences, to become someone with a lot of knowledge about the world. There is nothing more wonderful than feeling the excitement of going to new places, standing on the summit of a high mountain, and gazing at the beautiful and magnificent natural scenery. At that moment, I feel like a winner.

Travelling is the perfect time for healing.

Since I was in Vietnam, I began pursuing my passion. I often gather friends and plan my trips. Each trip brings different feelings and experiences. An adventurous trip on a motorbike brings a sense of freshness and conquest, which is different from a relaxing trip for self-healing. Usually, in Vietnam, we always have a group to travel together, sometimes a group of 5 people, sometimes a group of 7, or even more than 20-30 people. And my travel journey changed when I came to Korea.

Stepping into a foreign country without any relatives or friends, I began living alone and having experiences by myself. How can I not feel lonely when I climb a mountain alone? How can I not feel sad when I eat alone? But then everything became wonderful when I started to learn how to adapt. And I enjoyed the feeling of being alone. It helped me to have new experiences, to feel refreshed, and to discover many different aspects of myself that I had never thought of before.

Many people have asked me why I chose Korea for my master's degree. Simply because I like it. Since I was young, Korean culture has been a part of my life from movies, music, to even food. It became a part of my childhood and also my dream.

 

The impression of Korea is not only on me but on many Vietnamese people, which is "Korea is so beautiful!" Therefore, when I had the opportunity to study abroad, there was no reason why I would not choose Korea. That is why, living here for over a year, I have had unforgettable travel experiences.

 

I like taking photos. I take and post them on my social media as a way to keep memories. I always imagine that, in the future, when I am old, I will show my grandchildren that I have been to these places and have had a wonderful time.

 

 

Having experienced all four seasons in this country, each one has brought me different feelings. For me, Korea always gives off a gentle vibe, a vibe that just looking at it makes my heart flutter.

This is my first spring in Korea 2022.

I also enjoy the food here, even though I am not good at eating spicy food. Many of my friends have shared that they do not like Korean food and cannot appreciate it. Fortunately, I love it. I love the chicken menu with dozens of different flavors, love the soups for chilly days, and especially love the sweet and fragrant taste of strawberries in season.

I love Korean food so much.

All of these make me fall in love with this place. If I go back to Vietnam, I will definitely miss this place a lot.
