Text and photos by Gypsy Prime. I don't live here anymore. I am never sentimental about Singapore. It might be because despite living there for nearly five years, I never considered it as my home. I have always treated Singapore as a luxury hotel – a wonderful place to be in where everything is ...

There are a lot of things that are beyond my control and being open actually leads to a fulfilling and, if not happy, at least more meaningful life.
A lot of people were surprised that not only I decided to work in Brunei, but I was actually enjoying my life here.

I frankly admire the brashness of Vietnam's business capital. It's no way as bold as Singapore and Hong Kong – the de facto trade and finance centers in Southeast Asia, but Ho Chi Minh City has that ambitious drive as evidenced busy traffic, the tall buildings and shopping malls that crowd District 1, the hundreds of motorbikes plying the streets, digital nomads building their startups in hip cafes.

But more importantly, Ho Chi Minh City appeals to this Gypsy Gal who need to be in a city and relishes all the comforts it offers. I also love the fact that it remains interesting by offering a mix of old and new, modernity and mysticism, the so-called Oriental mystique that can be seen in its wide elegant boulevards, colonial buildings, museums, markets, temples and galleries.

The Vietnamese capital will always have a special place in my heart if only because living there for several months allowed me to reflect and realize what I really wanted to do with my life. But more than a place for introspection, I will always remember Hanoi for its quiet elegance and feminine vibe – providing a sharp contrast to Ho Chi Mihn City's masculine and aggressive energy. It's a place of temples and museums and parks. Of cafes that serve baguettes and cups of strong dark coffee. Of wandering along the narrow lanes of the Old Quarter while trying to avoid those motorbikes that come out of nowhere. Of strolling along the banks of the lake, believing this must be a perfect time to reflect, remember and be thankful for a weekend spent in a beautiful city.

Every woman  needs to travel on her own at least ONCE in her life. It is a rite of passage,  a sign that YOU are Living The Life that YOU Love.
 
In today's audio blog post, I discussed the many gifts of solo travel. 
 
And more importantly, I'm giving a lovely gift  for YOU who wants to craft your own journey –  The Gypsy Gals Guide to Solo Travel!

Introduction
I love traveling on my own and encouraging other women to enjoy the absolute freedom of solo travel.  

I love to read (a lot!) especially books by Alexander Mccall Smith, Pico Iyer and Isabel Allende.  Coffee is my poison of choice and I always bring lavender/mint-scented artisanal soaps wherever I travel - it's one travel item I can't live without.

I believe in Goddess Spirituality and Tibetan Buddhism and meshing it with my Catholic upbringing. That's my right fit spirituality.
