Responsible Trip in Ha Giang: I found my way and deeply felt how big I am!

“Responsible travel? What is this all about? Ok, whatever, it’s travelling though”. That was exactly what I thought before the trip with V.E.O in Ha Giang. It was a quick decision but thanks to that trip, my world is truly turned upside down…

In this hasty city, at the age of 20, stuck in studying – working – life’s problems, sometimes I feel like my existence on Earth just like a robot, I got tired of chasing that rhythm. Feeling exhausted, empty and lost then got a day off work, woke up with my phone in hand, I had no idea to do more for the whole day than surfing on Facebook’s newsfeeds. By chance, some photos posted by V.E.O (Volunteer for Education) in the Responsible Trip in Ha Giang sent me to a new land. But “Responsible travel? What is this all about? Ok, whatever, it’s travelling though”. I need to get away from this crowed city to find something new, something can inspire me. Ok, just pack and go! …

Leaving Hanoi at 9pm, our bus with V.E.O volunteers reached Ha Giang at 7pm, a new day in a new land, that was just a beginning.

First day in Ha Giang is a voluntary day, after taking some rest, we started our activities in the afternoon. I met some local kids along the way from our hostel to the project site and they were so shy at first..

Then we got closer by saying “Hello, hi”, with other volunteers, we had a very simple English sessions with lots of fun. We played some games together, the kids also taught me to pronounce some words in their mother language. I twisted my tongue but could sound like them. They still encouraged me, smiled at me and held my hand. It was absolutely heart touching!

The kids helped me feel their love. Their eyes, their laugh slowed down my life. I have never expected that my presence could bring such happiness to them. They made me realize that “Happiness is not something far away because we can make it together”. One more time, I founded energy for life, I founded myself in these supporting community activities.

As you see, Responsible trip, it is simpler than you think, you don’t have to give up anything. Just travelling and sharing. Be responsible, to yourself and to the world!

Love from Yu Yan (Taiwan)
