As a young man, raised in a middle-class, American household, I always wanted to travel. So when I arrived at college and saw all the possible internships and study abroad programs I applied immediately for every one that I qualified for. I was accepted to an internship in China and my world changed. As people, raised in a certain culture and taught a certain way, it seems that we limit ourselves in our views. My purpose in writing this blog is to open a forum to discuss our life as we know it (our culture, belief, history, habits) versus those that we have seen in our travels. I want to help you broaden your views, see the similarities, embrace the differences and and expand your horizons. I will also share deals, travel packages, and other programs that are available to us as explorers of our own planet. If you wish to contribute, please do. Travel, in the minutest sense, is moving from one point to another. It is changing our position. This happens in each of our lives daily. If you are looking for that change, as I was in my college years, initiate it with travel. It will initiate change in your emotional, mental and physical state. I experienced that in my own life and have seen it happen in so many other lives.
