“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.”
I like using my blog for anything that may cross my mind and I got to thinking about why I have the beliefs I do. Yes, some are probably ingrained in me since birth. Some are due to being a male. Etc….
But I find it very interesting when you can tell if a person has traveled. Mark Twain’s quote rings as true today as 140 years ago when he penned those words.
I lived in Spain for a while during college. Changed my perspective on almost everything. Simply time spent in a place and culture out of your comfort zone. I think it ought to be a requirement for high school or college to spend abroad.
That’s all. Just something I’ve been thinking about.
