Occasionally, I am particularly captivated by a series of posts on a particular blog. Recently, it has been Ben Casnocha blogging on his travels in Europe (maybe I’m just jealous seeing as I’ve spent most of my year in Asia and I miss the Western Civilization). Ben points out some very interesting things and provides commentary on a wide variety of issues. Clearly, travel is good. It forces you to think in new ways and spurs new ideas.
I thank my blessings each day that I am lucky enough to be able to travel year after year. There is a large portion of the world that never see beyond the edges of their own countries or even their own towns.
