I'm off tonight for 5 weeks in Vinh Long Province, Vietnam. It's about three hours south of Ho CHi MInh City on the Mekong Delta. I'll be teaching English and doing some admin work in a language school - AGES - Advanced Global Education Strategies which is run by a Canadian chap called Eric Gibb. He's wanting to set up links with Kapiti Colleges and wanted someone to go across to teach and promote Kapiti. Lyn suggested me (2 weeks ago) and here I am; about to fly off via Canberra and Singapore arriving tomorrow at 11.00a.m. Vietnam time.
Nervous? What a stupid question. Excited? Ditto.
Vinh Long is a small city on the Delta. River traffic makes up a large part of it's commerce and it is the fruit bowl of Southern Vietnam. Not very westernised so it should be an interesting experience.
We are Lyn and Robin - 60 and 70 something's - started traveling later in life when the kids were old enough not to care about where we were (in a good way).
Not adventure travelers but eager to see new places, meet people and enjoy new experiences.... full info
