Trang has a daughter, now 8 years old, named Lan Chi (name at home is Soc). Like many other mothers, Trang also wanted her daughter to have the same wonderful experiences as herself, so she did not hesitate to carry Soc everywhere.
Since the age of 8 months, Soc has been on a plane flying from South to North, with all the journeys stretching across Vietnam, from visiting Soc’s father’s hometown in Ho Chi Minh City, going out to other provinces. rivers in the West, then go through the scenic spots in the Central region, visit the mother’s mother’s hometown, or set foot in the northern mountainous provinces.
In 2018, when he was 4 years old, Soc was first sent abroad by his parents to explore the country of Thailand’s Golden Temple. Seeing that their daughter loves and is very suitable for travel, Trang and Den – the husband continue to give their daughter a trip to Malaysia – Singapore for a week in February 2019 on the occasion of her birthday.

Clean water for passersby to drink, or at any temple or temple along the road, everyone walks in barefoot even though no one stands next to guard or remind. Indigenous people here worship Buddhism from the heart, have a kind and sincere soul. Going to such places, children will automatically have valuable lessons in communicating and behaving naturally, without pressure.
Myanmar is one of the most impressive destinations for Trang’s family.
“The profit of family self-sufficient travel is that we will have the same memories, the same joy, the same emotions, and the connection. We have had very beautiful photos together, there are also very ‘difficult’ photos. Those are all memorable family moments. The foods you eat together for the first time, the times you lose your way together, the times you witness something emotional together, all of which are extremely precious and will be the moments of life. The most wonderful and healthy luggage for Soc to step firmly into life”, Trang affirmed.

But then thanks to a lot of travel, her vision changed, Trang knew what skills and knowledge she needed to improve, and knew how to actively seek out new opportunities. Now, Trang’s salary at work has tripled before!
“At the beginning, my salary was only 12 million, but now it’s over 30 million, not to mention the bonus. Because after returning, my understanding has been improved, I have looked for opportunities to try challenge, and choose a job with higher compensation,” Trang said excitedly.
In July, she and her family will have a 40-day European trip through Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, Italy, and Croatia. Many people ask Trang is it okay to take more than 1 month off work? Will the boss “whisper” or risk losing his job?
Trang usually answers: “My boss has no difficulty, because I took a month off to travel, but the remaining 11 months have worked very hard, achieving results beyond expectations. Therefore, boss and members The members of the team volunteered to do unexpected jobs while I was with my family to relax.”
