4. Travel remains and always will be a glorious lesson in history and culture. No one – and I mean NO ONE – can obtain the real and complete knowledge or a transformative cultural experience from a destination by sitting in a classroom or reading a historical archive.

5. Our world has always been capricious. Many of today’s issues have been relived for thousands of years by countless generations – and under far more rebellious, oppressive, and deadly circumstances.

Love the journey!

So summon your adventurous, wanderlust spirit then get out and love the journey – it’s utterly amazing!
