"I have always prided myself on being a voracious traveler, and much of it was out of necessity, in order to go home once a year and see my family in Taipei. But in this global moment, where we physically can't travel, I feel a different kind of homesick. I'm homesick for my childhood bed and family members and home cooking. But I'm also homesick for that feeling of being on the move---planning a trip, going through the airport routine, even getting on a plane. Travel is a privilege, one that has rightfully been taken away from us at the moment.
