Why travel? Travel gives us exposure to other people and places. Travel allows us to measure our traditions and experiences against those of other people in other lands.
When we go, we should go as guests and be sensitive to differences in customs. We should go abroad not looking for America over there. Rather, we should revel in the ways other people differ from us.
Travel has several dimensions. From my experiences, I will reflect on three: people, places, and images.
