Today I’m going to share with you a short vacation that left me a profound impression. It was a trip to the hometown of one of my classmates at university
At the end of the second semester, our group at the university was invited to pay a 5-day
visit the house of one of the group members, which is located in An Giang province.
We had 5 people in total and bought coach tickets to reach our destination.
On arriving at the countryside, which is quite secluded from the hustle and bustle of
the city life, we were greatly impressed by the picturesque landscapes there.
The atmosphere was refreshing and the air is unpolluted unlike in the city where
many of us were living in. My friend acted as a tour guide as he
was well accustomed to the local lifestyles and tourist attractions there. We
took the motorbikes to tour the city land stopped at some street vendors to taste the
local cuisine, which I personally found tasty and delicate. After doing the sights,
we gathered in the evening for some small games and gossip about our study and
our future career path.
All in all, such a short vacation still fills me with great delight each time I recall it.
Hope that we could make another vacation someday before Lunar New Year
