Liliane Angela Daou recalled her mother telling her "You've changed" after she returned from a four-month voyage at sea, where she studied and traveled to 11 countries around the world on a ship. Daou, who wrote about her experiences on a floating university in 2017, told The Daily Star she named her book after her mother's observation when she returned from participating in the Semester at Sea (SAS) program. In the SAS program, students take university courses for almost 100 days on a seven-deck, 590-foot ship, which docks in various countries throughout the semester.Daou stressed that part of the significant of travel was not just in booking a ticket or visiting museums.It grounded me and my six days there were eye-opening," Daou said.On why she decided to write a book about her experiences, Daou said she hoped it would inspire people to challenge themselves in the same way.
