There were times when we would be able to close our eyes in front of a globe, and where our fingertips landed, we curiously set off on a journey; a time when focusing on work while enjoying life in different cities during daytime and nighttime was part of our daily life; a time when we bought the quickest flight for our family to take off to at any time. This wonderful time drives people to look forward and eagerly get everything back on track again.

In the present challenging time, we may be "entrapped" in a particular city, or maybe we are looking forward to being in another place to start a new life, get a new job, or enrol in a course in one of their university. When we start living in a new environment, for instance, we gain new experiences, all of which will make us want to make changes for our wellbeing. No matter what kind of life we pursue, the thoughts and habits we have grown into in our younger days will follow us imperceptibly.

Travelling was only for nobles and wealthy people until three centuries. With the advancement of civilization in Europe, the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the construction of European railway networks, and the rapid development of the global aviation industry, travel has established a foundation for cross-cultural communication. More people benefit from multicultural backgrounds and get more inspired and understand themselves better from their journeys.

American sociologist Ruth Hill Useem put forward the term "Third Culture Kid" in the 1950s. She saw the formation of "Third Culture Kid" in her three children when she lived in India. "Third Culture Kid" refers to the third culture formed by the fusion of the parents' first culture (parents may also be people of different cultural backgrounds) and the second culture where the child grows up. According to professional investigations, the "Third Culture Kids" have their unique growth process. They have the advantages of more open thinking, multilingual expression ability, more innovative spirit and adaptability to globalisation, better communication, more balanced, etc. They can think rationally and understand the connections between various cultures and sensitive issues. They understand that the world does not have only one way to function. They build a broader worldview, values and outlook on life from diversification and unique experiences. Most of them grow up to become warm outstanding people. They work hard for multicultural communication and human peace through art, literature, music, politics, etc.

The news today is filled with chaos and uneasiness. What makes us panic is that many things are constantly changing rapidly. It tears our emotions when it gets serious. Even though things are going this way, we can still take a good look at the beautiful side of the world. At any given time, travel, as well as literature, music and movie, are the antidote to healing our souls.

Some places are like fine wines. When you enjoy them, your travel gains a special meaning.
