One of my favorite authors, Mark Twain, once said,
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
This quote has always stuck with me. I love to travel, both for the thrill of it and because I think it makes me a better, more aware person. My travels so far have completely shaped the person I am and the things I believe. I can only imagine that they will continue to do so as I get older and have more experiences away from home.
