The American author Henry Miller wrote of travel: 'One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.' Not everyone has their eyes opened: the footballer Ian Rush, on returning from a stint with Juventus, supposedly complained that 'it was like living in a foreign country'. So what does the research evidence say? Does time spent immersed in a foreign culture fundamentally change us? Turn to Dinsa Sachan's review to find out.

Elsewhere, I would point you to Michelle Ryan's 'shelfie' in our Books section; a 'One on one' with Rumina Taylor; and an ethical discussion on p.36. There's also folk illusions, parents and schoolwork, and interviews on work-life balance, and on a fascinating role in the Mayor's Office.

With issues this packed, and plenty of online exclusives, we're always looking for contributors. In particular if you're an established psychologist who has never featured in our pages, do get in touch! And for all the latest updates, follow us on Twitter @psychmag.
