Hi! I’m Giang, pronounced as ‘Zan’.
Who is Giang?
A Vietnamese girl who was born in Hungary and spent all of her life in Budapest, but heavily influenced by Vietnamese culture. So far she speaks Vietnamese, Hungarian, English, French and currently she is learning Korean.
As you see, I am a girl with two homelands. At first it caused me a problem, because I didn’t know where my root was. I am not Vietnamese, because I have never lived there, but I am also not Hungarian, because my blood is full Asian. When I realized this, I was totally depressed, I didn’t know where I belong to, where my home was.
Later I realized, this is the best thing that life could ever give me. I can say, if I don’t have home, then it doesn’t matter where I live, or if I say I have two homes, then I can also have a third home, forth home… . And this is the beginning of the thought that I want to travel and see the world.
Why do I start the travel blog?
Since my childhood, I have recognized a lot of thing around me and I always examine my own thought, and draw up experience when I realize something. Like a puzzle, a big picture contains thousands of small pieces. The big picture of the puzzle is like your perfect life, you have to find the small pieces that fit into that big picture and you have to keep looking for it, try it and decide whether it belongs to that place or not.
I usually have realizations drawing up from my every day life and when I talk to people. If it can be useful for all of us, I share them with the hope of having a better world with better human relationships.
My dream is travelling the world and share all of my knowledge, experience to people so to help them living a conscious life.
What can you gain from my blog?
