Why We Travel

“We carry values and beliefs and news to the places we go, and in many parts of the world, we become walking video screens and living newspapers, the only channels that can take people out of the censored numbers limits of their homeland.” This quote speaks to me because it is a reminder of the fact that, while we are trying to learn from those we are visiting, our hosts are also learning from us. It is because of this imperative that, when travelling, it is important to act accordingly with the power we have over others perceptions of Americans.
