Chào anh Đạt, Tôi thường theo dõi các travel blog về Việt Nam từ nhiều năm nay. Anh chị có lẽ là người Việt duy nhất (Việt kiều) kể chuyện bằng tiếng Việt và cũng có lẽ là cặp vợ chồng người Việt duy nhất trên thế giới đã đi du lịch tại hơn 100 nước. Đọc bài viết cảm nhận được liền cái tinh thần Việt Nam nữa, thật là ngưỡng mộ. Xin chúc anh chị luôn vui khoẻ và sẽ còn viết nhiều bài tường thuật nữa. Paul từ Canada
Dept. of Psychology, Cornell University: Prof. Thomas Gilovich: Want Happiness? Buy Experiences, Not Things, Says a Cornell Psychologist
It turns out that traveling makes us far happier than any material wealth ever does
Why do we head for the shops with such determination as soon as we have money in our wallets? With every new purchase we feel a little happier, but a few days later that satisfaction is often gone without a trace. We at Bright Side decided it was time to get to grips with this problem once and for all, and to make sense of how we can all find true happiness.
It turns out that the main impediment to happiness is adaptation. As soon as something we’ve bought becomes ordinary and unexciting, the level of life satisfaction we feel falls, and we’re forced to search around for the next purchase. This process is repeated again and again.
However, research carried out at Cornell University has found a way to break this damaging cycle. Psychology professor Thomas Gilovich has shown that we experience the same increase in happiness when we buy something we want and when we go traveling. But — and here’s the most important point — the amount of happiness we derive from our purchase falls over time, whereas the memories of our traveling experience continue to supply us with happiness hormones for much longer.
Going to various kinds of unusual events, going on trips, learning new skills, even extreme sport — all of these are an ideal source of happiness for each and every one of us. A new device or even a new car will eventually become just another ordinary object we own, or will otherwise become old and outdated. Every new memory, on the other hand, becomes a real source of joy that stays with us for our whole lives.

Dat, thank you for the contact, it is always good to hear from fellow MTP travellers.
I was in Ethiopia in 1973 as part of my African Odyssey from Cape Town to Cairo.
My information is generally out of date now- Haile Selassie was on the throne then!
If I may suggest the following source of information to build up a good picture in preparation
for your journey- Rough Guide have just published their new Africa guide which is up to date.
I have a copy. It covers Ethiopia and gives good advice on a wide range of towns and cities,
transport, accommadation, safety and entry requirements.
I plan to travel West Africa over the next 3 years and will be using this or any new source along
with MTP entries, Wikitravel, Eyewitness travel, Wikipaedia and UNESCO's World Heritage List.
I hope this is of some use. Let me know how you get on. Best of luck on your travels.

Greetings fellow traveller
It was a pleasure to meet you and to travel with you both in Vietnam and Hong Kong. Our experience of Vietnam was truly enhanced by sharing our time there with you. Through google translate I was able to read some of your Vietnamese language comments about your travels. It is generous of you to take the time to share the knowledge you gained from your travels with others. We are honored to be part of your journal. I take the lesson from your blog that the old tome that a picture is worth a thousand words, misses the fact that a picture alone cannot convey the smells sounds and feelings that visiting a new place evokes in a traveller, we need additional words. I hope our paths cross again somewhere in world. Harold
Could I interest you in a digital visit to Norway? In my new blog I present Norway and Norwegian nature to the world. Allthough it's a rather new blog, you'll already find several hundre pictures published from different locations throughout Norway, and you'ree welcome to take a peek :-) ( http://www.seenorway.wordpress.com )
Hi there, I’m writing to you from a global network of newspapers called Allied Newspapers – a network of newspapers including ‘New York Daily Sun’, ‘South American Herald’ and ‘Tokyo Morning Star’. As a network we have already attracted 100,000 views this year despite our relative youth but we’re looking to expand this further. We are looking for freelance writers to help increase our network via interesting content and word of mouth exposure as well. In return your writing would gain greater exposure as part of our network – we have in the past had articles receive over 10,000 views individually and this is something that will increase as the network becomes bigger. Judging by your blogging on www.travelblog.org, you could be an ideal writer for one of our titles. We only accept original content and cannot at this stage pay for articles, but we can offer you exposure and a string to your writers bow in that you will be writing increasingly respectful titles. We are interesting in all sorts of articles ranging from world news to sport to academic expertise on specific areas and so on. We are libertarian so we are interested in being a platform for all political motivations and opinions but we do draw a line at anything that may be termed extremist or that may incite hatred of some sort. If you’re interested, please feel free to respond us at firstname.lastname@example.org and check out some of the titles posted in the postscript. Yours truly, William Barns-Graham Editor of New York Daily Sun Content Editor at Allied Newspaper (Skype: william.barns.graham) http://www.alliednewspapers.org/ http://www.newyorkdailysun.com/ http://www.manilaherald.com/ http://www.hongkongmorningstar.com/ http://www.sunofindia.com/ http://www.southamericanherald.com/ http://www.tokyomorningstar.com/

We were there a little later in 1992, and the posted photos bring back a lot of memories. On more recent revisits, we see that a lot has changed, but it is still the top city in the world for us.
