I have shared Andrew Murphy's firm belief that "You're confined only by the walls you build yourself". You can only live once, but it doesn't mean that you can not "live more than one life in more than one place". That goes a long way towards explaining why I love languages, reading and travelling. I've so far challenged myself with English, Chinese and Spanish; though the road is rough and the going gets tough, the fruits are so much sweeter than expected. In addition, I've cherished the dreams of travelling as much as I can and as my personal opinion, "travelling" here is not meant to move outside a comfort zone to step in another one, but to try your best to integrate yourself into the local society in order to "feel" it: live as a local, taste local food and learn about new cultures and let's imagine how much it sounds good to communicate with a local by his language. And more to the point, that perspective on travelling has taught me some valuable lessons of putting myself in other' shoes to see what they, hear what they hear and feel what they feel!
