21 Oct Becoming Better People Through Travel
“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.”
According to Mark Twain, Rick Steves, today’s top travel bloggers (and every-day people), experiencing a world outside of our own bubble has the power to make us better people.
Not all travel can do this. Though the typical vacation can be a much-needed source of relaxation, it usually doesn’t change anyone’s life. Cross-cultural exchanges; slower, long-term travel; and opportunities to connect with nature are just a few examples that have the power to fuel our passion for life-long learning and global citizenship. Meaningful experiences like these often make us more understanding, compassionate, responsible, and generous human beings – effects that ripple out across our communities and help create a better world.
