“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.” – Gustave Flaubert “A good traveller is one who knows how to travel with the mind.” – Michael Bassey Johnson “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.– African proverb “The use of travelling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson “Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henr y Miller “It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” – Ursula K.

editor’s note

Hey kids! Have you ever dreamt of going on a long journey? Perhaps it is an exciting adventure far from home, or it could even be to Mars or Pluto! We have titled this issue “Great Journeys”, because we chart the voyages of some of the greatest explorers of our time (p.36). The likes of Marco Polo, Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great travelled from their hometowns into unknown territory in Asia, only to carve their names in history. In Spectacular Pilgrimages (p.10), we see how colourful some of Asia’s religious festivals can be, from Thaipusam to Good Friday to Vesak Day - and how far devotees are willing to embark on their great spiritual journeys. We also look at inventions that have bridged the concept of distance, making the world so much…

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name Shakespeare? Is it Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, or that terrible, terrible word… “boring”? Well, all that will change once you step into the historic colonial building that is the Singapore Philatelic Museum, located on Coleman Street. Its current exhibit, titled “Shaking it with Shakespeare” is a world of curiosities; stamps of Shakespeare from around the world, century-old picture postcards, minted coins from the Elizabethan era, original books from Shakespeare’s time, historical Tudor costumes and so much more! Jointly organised with the British Council and the GREAT Britain Campaign, its purpose is to celebrate the 400-year anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. That’s right, Shakespeare would have been 452 years old today, and his legacy as the greatest playwright in the…
