Vietnam: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time
My first book in more than four years has been published on Amazon. If you’re curious about what it’s like to start a new life in a developing Asian country as a single expat woman of a “certain age”, this book will tell all, including:
– what it’s really like to live in Vietnam
– expat jobs, particularly freelancing
– problems of living in Vietnam
– pros and cons of living in Vietnam
– cost of living in Vietnam
– whether Vietnam is safe for expats.
Part diary, part memoir and part travel guide, Vietnam: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time will take you on a journey of discovery that asks the ultimate questions: who am I and where do I belong?
“My reasons for being here in Hanoi have been well documented, but for those of you who want the Reader’s Digest version, it goes something like this: I visited Vietnam in 2010, and as part of the tour I was on, we ate lunch at KOTO Restaurant. I was so impressed with them that I vowed to come back one day and volunteer. That day is now. I also wanted to take my life in a different direction because I was stagnating and bored and undervalued and unappreciated in my job, and “running away” to Vietnam to volunteer seemed like the answer to the question I was asking myself the age old questions at the time: Surely there’s more to life than this?”
Vietnam: It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time is free to download on Amazon from 13-17 November.
