American historian and champion of women’s suffrage, Miram Beard, once wrote,
"Travel is more than a seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living."
I particularly like this quotation, since it says much of what I believe about travel, succinctly and eloquently. Travel causes an evolution in thought and perspective which transforms a person, totally. This metamorphosis can be yours, too, if you choose to engage.
