Exposing them to other cultures in far away places has allowed them to experience some of the same lessons that I learned growing up. These experiences have helped them to see others as people first, free of stereotypes. Because of travel, my family and I feel ties to the greater world.
I have designed excursions to places near and far, including Indonesia, India, Myanmar, China, the South Pacific, Brazil and the Amazon, Argentina and Patagonia, Chile, Morocco, the Philippines, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Europe, the Mediterranean, Hawaii and more by land and by sea. In my opinion, any destination holds endless opportunities, if only we are able to open our eyes to them.
My belief is that travel is the best education one can invest in. Learn about your destination before you travel, go and immerse yourself while you are there, be open to learning, be a good ambassador, give of yourself, and finally take away the simple things that we often forget that makes life so rich; new relationships and memories that will bond you and the ones you love forever.
