How about: 行 /xíng/ OK!
___ _ ____ __ _ _ ___

行 /xíng/ means TO GO, but it is used in an abstract sense, that something IS POSSIBLE (that it GOES through)

We find it in useful words:

行李 /xínglí/ A SUITCASE – by the way, can you believe that there is a special page dedicated to LUGGAGE HERE? 🙂

旅行 /lǚxíng/ TO TRAVEL

___ _ __ ___ _ ___ __

The character 行 has another reading (sometimes that happens, but it is quite rare).

The reading is /háng/ and we find it in the word 银行 /yínháng/ A BANK.

By the way, there is a page dedicated to BANK – HERE.

___ _ __ ___ _ ___ __

When you add 2x 土 /tǔ/ GROUND to the character 行, you get 街 /jiē/ A STREET.
