Aldous Huxley once said, “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
I believe in a global education. I believe that traveling the world is the best form of education. I learn more when I am traveling than I ever have in a classroom and I have spent a lot of time in classrooms.
The thing about traveling is you not only learn about other cultures, you learn about yourself. You find out what your limits are, and then you can push them. In order to learn and grow we must constantly push ourselves outside our comfort zones.
In today’s world we have unlimited, instant access to information but that information can and usually is biased in some way. Some of the most amazing people I have met, I met in counties that most people would never go to. This is a shame. These people have full hearts and would do anything to help another human, even though they have very little themselves.
We must travel to discover what really is going on in the world. We then can bring that information back and share. The world is the biggest classroom we have and I don’t plan on stopping my education anytime soon…
