Why I love to travel....

...it's not so much about taking pics or writing blogs.... those things are just the "GRAVY" of the experience. The "MEAT" of why I love to travel has been captured so beautifully by one of my favorite authors.


 Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

Now wouldn't the world be better place if everyone could experience travel? Love Maya Angelou's quote. Hadn't heard it before.
