I travel to gain a broader perspective of the world. I travel to open my mind and my heart to other cultures and different ways of doing things. I travel to understand, connect and learn. I travel to see my own country through the eyes of others. I travel to become a better global citizen of the world. I travel because staying home invariably leads to believing the American way is the only way and I want more for myself and the world. On this inauguration day, I celebrate my American citizenship and the freedom that brings. I also celebrate my global citizenship in this beautiful world full of cultures, languages and ideas vastly different from my own and I eagerly await the opportunity to stand on foreign soil again. In the meantime, I'll explore why I travel here. Please join me and leave a comment.
