蔡康永曾說:「出國走走、旅行,不會讓你增加國際觀;多知道一種生活態度才能讓你增廣見聞。」

體驗在異國的團體生活,我覺得對於出社會前的準社會新鮮人來說,是一個非常寶貴的經驗。離開舒適圈,團員即是家人,我們來自四面八方,不同的生活背景與價值觀聚在一起,都能夠在彼此身上激盪出不一樣的視野。就像,我在德秀身上看見了自信與知識的涵養;在品君身上看見了率真與善良;在理丹身上看見了創造與實踐…。每個我們所遇到的人格特質,都可以讓自己重新去檢視過去與現在的生活樣貌,這些都是很值得我們細心地去挖掘的寶藏。

你若問我,這五個月裡你學到了什麼?我想,我無法確定自己學到了多少,將多少知識累積成自己的樣貌。但我可以確定的說,這趟旅程,我“看見”了很多過去所看不見的視野也看見了許多原來可以不一樣的自己。

在企業裡工作,可以看見不同專業領域的知識以及不同於台灣的工作模式。為了因應義大利老闆們的忙碌行程,你必須培養出積極主動的工作態度並且試圖自己去創造出即使只有五分鐘的討論機會。老闆給予你的發展空間,會讓你相信你依然是充滿著創造力而非僅僅只是工具人而已;在慢食的生活理念裡,可以看見義大利人對於食物的尊重,從了解食材到如何烹調,你需要知道與了解你正在吃什麼,並且感受如何真正的去品嘗食材之間所調和出來的美味;而從義大利的咖啡文化中,你可以看見國家與國民對於義式咖啡的堅持與捍衛。除了他們熱愛與專情於義式濃縮咖啡以外,對於口味的堅持也讓幾乎分布於全球的星巴克完全沒有任何機會可以進駐義大利。這是他們國家與國民對於咖啡文化的堅持。

甚至在旅遊了許多不同的國家之後,我深深的感受到雖然英文是國際通用語,但若要融入當地、感受文化還是要學習當地的語言,至少最基本的打招呼問候道謝等要學會。這或許是一個很基本的尊重,當你表現出來了,你也會得到更多不一樣的體驗過程。這一切的一切都是這趟旅程以及TIP計劃給予我的寶藏。

雖然我們所看見與體會的依然只是這個國家的一小部分,但這都是屬於我自己獨特的奇義旅程,我用雙腳走過、用心體驗過才擁有的樣貌。

Kevin Tsai ever said that " It will not build up the global vision to go aboard; but you will broaden your horizons if you experience more about the different life style."

Living in Italy, we will experience different environment and lifestyle from the past life in Taiwan. It seems to restart a new journey in your life. I thought I would be afraid of foreign environment, but in fact, I was excited and curious about everything. Even if I only learned a few Italian for greetings and introducing myself, I constantly repeated to introduce myself and say "Piacere, Piacere" with shaking hands, just like a child. From clerk, waiter to the dormitory guards, all of them were my targets to practice my poor Italian. That's the start of my journey, Api Huang's Fantasy Journey.

Experiencing the group life in foreigner country is a treasure for the fresh graduate. Leaving our comfortable zone, Taiwan, the TIP members were my family in Italy. All of us came from all around, from different life background and different value gathering together and we can find out different perspective on each other. For example, I found the confidence and literacy from Caterina; the kind and down-to-earth from Katia; the creation and practice from Dandan. All of the personality that we met can make yourself to re-examine the past and present life and be the treasure that worthy to experience in mind.

If you ask me that what did you learn in these five months, I can't make sure how much I learned and how much knowledge I obtained. But exactly, I can be sure that I found and saw many different vision that I never experienced in my past life and I found that I can be different. 

To have an internship in UNIQUE, I can find the different professional knowledge and the different working concept. Because our boss is always busy, we must be active on our job and try to create the meeting chance even if just only five minutes. The prospect that our boss gave us makes us trust that we still have the creation and we are not just only an errand boy. To be in the concept of slow food, we can find the respective on food for Italian. From realizing the ingredients to knowing how to cook, you need to know and realize what you are eating and to experience how to deeply taste the delicious food between different ingredients; In the coffee culture of Italy, you can find the persistence and protection for Italy and their citizens. Not only they have huge passion and deep love on espresso, but also their persistence on the taste makes there is no chance to enter Italy for Starbucks. This is a sense of persistence.

Moreover, after traveling many different countries, I deeply experienced that  even if English is the international language, I think if we want to immerse ourselves to the local culture, we must to learn the local language. At least, we need to learn the basic social conversation, such as “hello”, “thank you” , “bye” and so on. Maybe that is a concept of basic respect to the country. I think when you pay the basic respect to the people or the country, you will gain more different experience than your expectations. 

Although we only found and experienced the small part of the country, the experience of the fantasy Italia Journey is belong to me, I stepped out; I experienced by my heart and I got my sight.
