Anthony Bourdain didn’t simply host a food travel show. He took viewers to new worlds. In all his curiosity, coolness, and righteousness, he taught us that we can find beauty in every corner of the world. During Parts Unknown, food offered much more than delicious tastes and good times. All those epic meals served as the motif for us to know the unknown. In this sense, Parts Unknown showed us how to travel and understand others.

Originally published in 1964, Flat Stanley describes the adventure of a young boy who wakes up crushed by a bulletin board in his sleep. No need to worry though, because he’s perfectly fine and functioning. He’s just one-dimensional. He slides beneath doors. He solves crimes. He hides in paintings. He assimilates to life as a paper-thin human. There’s an entire series of his adventures, and in one of them, he realizes that he could be mailed to friends in California without spending a dime on an airplane ticket. He’s basically living the dream.
