Day 8: The Last Night

I can’t believe this trip is coming to an end, it feels like it was just yesterday that we arrived at Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. However, I couldn’t ask for a better ending to this trip which started off with a day at the Pattaya beach. It was nice to wind down after a long […]

Day 7: When in Bangkok

As we arrived at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok, Thailand I didn’t feel like I was in a developing country anymore. Everything seemed very advanced in comparison to Cambodia and even Vietnam. Technology was more advanced, there were more English speakers, a lot more foreigners living in the city and even the marketing was different.

I saw all the […]

Day 6: Cambodia, it has Been an Honor.

A few more hours left in Seim Reap before we are off to Bangkok, Thailand for our stop. To end our visit in Cambodia, we visited an organization called EGBOK Mission, which was a very inspiring story. Ben Justus, the founder of the NGO was fascinated by Cambodia and its history and visited for a […]

Day 5: Today will be the Most Memorable Day on this Trip

Day 3: Goodbye Vietnam, Hello Cambodia! 

Body and mind conflict going on at the moment…my body has barely got any sleep and has been walking all day for the past two days but my mind is up and ready to go and doesn’t want to miss out on anything. It’s our last day in Vietnam which is bitter sweet because I […]

Day 2: We saw how your Nike shoe was made!

I haven’t been able to keep track of what day or time it is and I feel like this trip is just one long day. It does feel like I have been here for longer but it is only day 2! So today was day number two and the first trip on our agenda was […]

Day 1: It all started at 8:45 AM January 4th, at our hotel lobby in Vietnam!

I think I speak for the entire class when I say that for the past few weeks we have all been waiting for it to be 8:45 am, January 4th at the hotel lobby of the Paragon hotel, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Those were always Professor Shultz’s last words after our meetings back in […]
