Hey! Hi! Xin Chao! I am Frances: a Scottish lassie turned Vietnam expat circa 2016. And the creator of So The Adventure Begins.
I’m another one of the millions hit by a cliche case of the travel bug, but I am one of the few who took that travel fever and went all in;
✅ I completed my TEFL before I even graduated from university.
✅ I secured my first teaching job before I had even set foot in Vietnam.
And well, I’ve since learned that those risks pay off. Big time. 5 years later and I’m still educating the future of Vietnam, using Saigon as a launchpad to explore Asia. Sorry mum and dad, I don’t think I’ll be returning home anytime soon.
So The Adventure Begins is my creative baby; my digital memory book if you will. A place to share life’s adventures. I believe that sharing-is-caring and with that spirit pledge to use this space to pen my experiences and knowledge from moving to and living in Vietnam, motorbiking solo and teaching abroad in the hopes that you find it valuable. And of course, to share stories and tips from my travels across Asia.
