The five of us got on the plane in Copenhagen, thrilled to finally begin our journey. Even though our backgrounds are different, we share much of the same excitement and anticipation over our trip to Vietnam. We left a cold and rainy Scandinavia behind us and were met with a warm and sunny Ho Chi Minh City! We all feel so unbelievably lucky to be here, and look forward to seeing the genuine Vietnam and the everyday life of the students and people who benefit from the Save the Children programmes. We also look forward to meeting our Save the Children partners, the people who implement these programmes. Even though we are totally exhausted after the long flight, we have so much energy and can’t wait to get started!
