Throughout the summer of 2022, I experinced numerous things on my wonderful trip back to my country, Vietnam. Although it was just a short two months of summer vacation, I still had a blast and probably the most memorable summer of my life.
My name is Dat Bui. Growing up in the capital city of Vietnam, Hanoi, everything is quite convenient for me. I live in a revolutionizing city with modern technology and infrastructure. Vehicles are everywhere, people are always busy and it is crowded.
Getting tired of the modern hectic life, I wanted to travel to places where everything is tranquil and peaceful. My family and I decided to go to Dalat, one of the most famous tourist destinations in Vietnam. Known for its temperate climate, beautiful landscape, and a variety of cuisines, Dalat is the most fascinating place I have ever been to.
“I couldn’t even believe my eyes, there is absolutely nowhere as exquisite as Dalat,” Dat said. “Thanks to my parents for setting up this amazing trip that I didn’t expect.”
As a student who has been studying for five years in the U.S., coming back to his hometown, Dat is immensely astonished with a special place like Dalat.
“It’s unbelievable,” he said.l “I’m glad to be back home with my family and experience such a remarkable summer vacation like this.”
This is a picture of me, Dat Bui, and my lovely niece taken on Aug. 7, 2022. The reason why I chose this picture is because this is actually the first time we met. She was born when I was in the U.S. Her name is Suzie; she is only 4 months old but I love to spend time playing with her and trying to make her laugh. Sometimes, her parents even ask me to babysit her when they aren’t home and it was one of my favorite experiences ever. I love her and wish that when I come back home next year, she will be able to say my name properly.
