Crazy kids anyway...
So I was telling one of my co-workers about my upcoming trip - not in a braggy way (I hope) but more in a so-you-know way, and with furrowed brow, he said, "Why are you doing that? Oh you be careful over there..." And it reminded me about something I have read - that 28% of Americans have passports and less than 1/2 of them use them. While I'm very fond of my comfort zone (tall blonde roast, save room for cream) I am also very excited about finding our way, quite literally, in the world...being dependent on the kindness of strangers, diving in and acting like a local, and finding ourselves amidst the isolation. How might we behave differently if we traveled more? That's a question I'm hoping to answer.
