|Subject: Why travel? Was Portugal|
Dear Carol and other Ziners,
I was blessed with parents that gave me a great love of traveling and with our trips expanded my horizons.
I travel because it has taught me respect for others and their cultures. It has taught me acceptance of our differences. I travel because it has taught me adaptability. I travel because I love to experience new smells, new tastes, new sounds, new landscapes. I travel because even in the worst scenarios I have learned and have become a better person. I travel because I refuse to be stagnant.
I travel with an open heart and an open mind and have never had any regret.
I am truly grateful to have the ability to travel far or close from home and I am grateful to consider a place "home" to which I can return.
Why do you travel?
