What does travelling mean to you?

Some people see travelling as a romantic getaway. In movies, TV dramas and even animations, it is not rare to see characters having a getaway in the most fascinating places. For instance: doves flying in front of the Cathédrale Notre Dame in Paris; the cherry blossom shower in Japan; the splashing sounds along the Jiangnan River… we have always wished to leave behind all the chaos and duties, to jump right into the screen for a little escape.

Some people see travelling as a satisfying journey, not only for your soul but also your appetite. From savoring hot chili dishes to light and refreshing meals, trying out new food allows you to experience the local custom of the particular place. The exotic gourmets are often one of the highlights of traveling for this bunch of people.

Some people see traveling as a seminar in life. Reading from books gives us knowledge – True. However, as the Chinese saying says, “Experience is the best teacher”. There is always something that we cannot learn from texts and images, but from what we went through. Going on a journey lets us discover what we have missed while we burry ourselves in the sea of books, and is a step further in completing one’s life long chapter.
