Travel

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” ― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad/Roughing It

“To see the world, things dangerous to come, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” ― James Thurber, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Much of my travel has resulted from living in Europe during my two Fulbright grants: Kosovo (2012) and Romania (2016-1017). Pictures of many trips can be found in my Facebook albums. (Some of these albums are available only to “friends.”)
