Before giving a detailed account of my James IV travel, I would like to thank the Association for giving me this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity travelling around the world. I am sure all the memories and experiences that came with this fellowship would stay with me for the rest of my life. In total, I travelled across 3 continents or 4 countries over a total period of 6 weeks. In addition to thanking the Association, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my department and my own team for their support by arranging clinical duties coverage while I was away. It was not easy given the period of time and I think my colleagues did put in extraordinary effort in covering my duties. Nevertheless, the travelling has given a different perspective to life and work and has also opened up new research opportunities and directions. My travel has also offered me the opportunity to rekindle old friendships and to establish new ones. Perhaps, my travel was best summarized by this quote “a journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles”. My fellowship would not have been what it was if I did not have support and friendship from my overseas friends and colleagues who were incredibly busy people but were ever so willing to give up their precious time.
