I love visiting Vietnam. It is probably my favourite place I have been to so far. The birthplace of my parents and sister, I didn’t realize how much of a connection I would feel to the country given that I was born in Canada. There is something special about visiting a country where everyone speaks a language that is not English, but that you understand. You immediately feel a sense of belonging. On one of my work trips to Vietnam I was able to sneak in a couple days to visit the island of Phu Quoc.
