Phu Quoc is the biggest island in Vietnam. I have visited the island two times and it’s always nice to me. Thanks to the fact that it’s close to the equator, I can enjoy the warm weather almost every day if I live here.Continue reading “Phu Quoc”

Poland – One Year Ago
It has been one year since the day I visited Poland. Poland is not a strange name with people in my country. I am not sure if this is good or bad. However, my country and Poland used to have a strong tie, at least in terms of ideology, before USSR was collapsed. Many people from my country are still living here, and even some of them have made a big fortune.Continue reading “Poland – One Year Ago”
Get Wet and Explore Caves
Last week, I decided to spend my vacation in Phong Nha and explore some caves in the Tu Lan system. This trip had not been in my plan until my another oversea plan was failed due to the visa reason. It turned out an amazing trip and I am super happy with the fact that I missed the visa and spent time for this trip. You never know when a bad luck becomes a great joy then.
Next Look Back: The First Days of Spring in Paris
From Lyon, I got up early, moved to the train station, and started moving to Paris. I was lucky when selecting this early train. The scene outside was amazing, which was a mix of sunrise, fog, and green lawn. I even thought “Wow, I could not believe I can see this with my real eyes”. That was definitely a great start for an attractive capital.

It has been one year since I officially joined A8C. Before applying to the company, I had expected a lot but the two biggest points are: learning from the global scale system and traveling opportunities (around the world). In fact, I’ve had much more than what I expected.

A Look Back: Lovely Lyon
Leaving Antibes, I was on the train heading to Lyon. It was too cold in the early morning. The railway is close to the Mediterranean Sea. The scene through the train window was amazing. By that time, I wished I would have a car and drive on the road, and feel the sea.
Lyon greeted me with the sunshine but it was cold too. The temperature was even lower than the frozen threshold.

Work and Travel in Nha Trang
Nha Trang is always my favorite city. I have not lived in this city yet but I visit this city very often. Well, that has been “every year” since the first time I visited it. I love its weather, food, people, and scuba diving.
Let’s see what I have done in the recent days: eating a lot of seafood, going to the sea for a couple of scuba dives, jogging around the city, meeting local friends, and giving a talk in the local WordPress meetup.
Greeting the Holidays with a Run
In Vietnam, last week, we had two holidays together with two weekend days. I expected that Hanoi would be less crowded when people flocked to their hometowns or went somewhere for resting. In the case, you do not know, Hanoi is always super crowded and its air is even as bad as Beijing. I really wanted to grab this chance and enjoy the less-people atmosphere with a run around the biggest lake in the city – West Lake.
A Look Back: My Team Meetup at Antibes
In the last week of February, my team had the annual meetup in Antibes, France. As you might know, I am working in a completely remote company, and we meet each other in person around two times per year. That’s why this retreat is super important, which helps build trust and increase our productivity.
Everest Base Camp
After spending some days at WC Kathmandu, I was going to EBC – Everest Base Camp. EBC is really like “been there done that” without much to see. But the whole journey to it was a unique experience.
I could see the landscape changing from green (a lot of trees), to grey (small trees), to white (mix of ice and stone).
I could feel the less-oxygen air and overcome it.
I could know that the 5-star price and non-star service can go together.
I could have 24 hours without any internet at all (no way to get it).
I could fail when something was too hard for me.
I could face many types of things in almost the same time: cold, sunny, dusty, windy, and snowy.
I could (a lot of verbs here).
