在旅遊的時候,離開我們熟悉的環境,體驗其他國家的風土人情入鄉隨俗做自己不習慣的事情時,最能反映我們的性格,無論是好或壞的性格。最好是懂得學習他鄉的好傳統。喜歡旅行的原因主要是那無限的好奇心,天大地大,世界有七大洲,兩百多個國家,每天在陽光下,月亮下太多新鮮事物發生,許多天然的景物和人類文化不斷在演變,一輩子都看不完遊不盡,每次接觸新事物,學習新知識,品嚐新美食,觀看新風景,心情自然而然地非常愉快,喜歡那種求知的感覺,在一個陌生的城市,簡單如乘車,到超市購物,從東到西都不熟識,都須重頭認知,與當地人交談事事新奇,眼界大開。在大自然中感受一下環境及萬物的互動及互相倚賴總有意外的驚喜,同時也滿足那純真的好奇心。 在這個新書介紹會中,陳志邦博士將會跟大家分享一些與太太一同遊歷七大洲時所遇到有啟發性的故事。

Travel book launch (Book written in Chinese)

From small encounters to enlightenment: Collection of stories during world travel

When we travel, leaving our familiar environment, experience other countries culture and practice, do something we are not so used, almost a good reflection on our personality for good or bad. To learn about the good traditional culture of other people. I love travelling because I am very curious, for the world is so big with seven continents, over 200 countries. Everyday there are new happenings under the Sun and the Moon, nature and human culture continue to evolve, you are hardly visit every place in a life time. Every time when we encounter new things, learn new knowledge, taste new food, appreciate a new scene, our heart is full of joy, love the feeling of wanting to explore more. In a unfamiliar place, simple thing like taking the public transport, shopping at supermarket, nothing is familiar, we have to learn from scratch, talking to the local people always widen our horizon. Relax and submerge yourself in nature, follow our pure curiosity to feel the interaction and the inter-dependency of everything in the ecosystem, there are always nice pleasant surprise, and highly satisfying. In this book launch event, Dr Dominic Chan will talk about these enlightening encounters while he travels through seven continents with his wife.
