“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St Augustine
I remember my first plane ride. I was 5.
“Mummy let you sit by the window so you can see everything,” she said, buckling me up. Since then, I always sit by the window.
My Sociological training at NUS was one of those things that people called ‘interesting’ at best, and ‘a useless degree’ at worst. Yet it the experience of learning and reading about different cultures and issues, some I had never heard about, was invaluable and enriching. Outside of the lecture theaters, traveling quenches my curiosities and often rewards with intriguing information about history, geology, zoology, botany, economy, sociology… and a whole myriad of experiences.
