week one: Global Citizenship.
After traveling or living abroad, upon returning home everyone loves to ask the same question, or at least a variation of it, "[How] have you've changed?". Obviously, uprooting your life and moving to a different country will change you; some things are obvious, like the foods you eat or weather your accustomed to, but the lesser known and noticeable are the changes that occur within. Living (and traveling) abroad has taught me new ways to live life, values held by different groups of people, and differences in day to day activities. What I've noticed along with this though, is that the world is also changing, the United States is no longer the only 'melting pot', there are now cultures, races and religions mixing all across the world.
"Travel is fatal to predjudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on those accounts.
Emptying my Head
I'm an overthinker, my brain is always on overdrive. Sometimes the thoughts are pertinant to life, and other times they're just a trove of wonder. They're usually about, related to or in memory of travel. When they're good I like to share.
