Travel the world—make a difference. Books and the internet help us do that too! ~ Bette A. Stevens

I think Mr. Twain was onto something. I would like to believe that when exposed to cultures different from their own, most people return to where they came from with their minds just a little more open and receptive to new ideas.
Personally, I like to travel for the sake of travel. For me, the destination is not as important as the journey. The adventure lies in the experiences I pick up along the way. And experiences are my most treasured possessions.
